A Wisbech man recorded four albums whilst waiting two years for Covid-delayed surgery on his legs.
William Volo, who studied music at the College of West Anglia and releases under the artist name Des Volo, said his work on the land "came to an abrupt end" when he seriously injured his leg.
"This was a huge blow mentally, but luckily my friends were there for me," he said.
Having been on the waiting list at the Queen Elizabeth hospital, Covid-19 ruined his hopes of a swift return to work.
"But my boss has been very kind and patiently awaits my return," William added.
But, instead of letting the injury get him down, he turned the situation he found himself in into "something positive.
