His passion for music started at the age of 14 and like many other artists starting out, took up piano lessons. He acquired a strong interest in Jazz music and consequently joined a jazz band and small group combo in which he performed with for many years. While studying music theory at Auckland University he developed a strong interest in Electronic music production. He soon started composing electronica and performing in clubs and venues as one of New Zealand premier Electronic Acts under the moniker of 'Fluid'. A number of his original tunes had some airtime on NZ radio. Following his move to the UK Dion focused on composing downbeat and developing his voice and guitar skills. After a year of practicing his tunes in his bedroom, a stubborn new year’s resolution, and some timely singing lessons, Dion took the plunge and has taken his act to stage. He has been performing for voice and guitar regularly since his debut in April 2011 and has performed at many UK festivals including the Secret Garden Party, Sub Audio Festival, and Boomtown.
