Powers was raised in Liverpool. He began his career in 2001 manning a slot on Juice FM, before moving onto Radio City 96.7 in 2011 and Capital FM in 2015. In the interim, he formed the group Cahill (named after Everton FC player Tim Cahill) with Scott Rosser and Tim Condran. Cahill had a series of releases including "Trippin' on You" (UK #25), "Crush on You", and "Sex Shooter". They became well known for their remixes and were commissioned to remix for Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Kylie Minogue, Nicole Scherzinger, Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez, Olly Murs, and Mariah Carey.
Powers has performed internationally at events such as Creamfields, Tomorrowland, Amnesia, Ruby Skye, and Zero Gravity. He was voted Liverpool DJ of the Year by the Liverpool Echo in 2009, 2010, and 2012, and was named the same in 2013 by Liverpool City Council. He also runs the A&R for record label 3 Beat Productions, which includes acts such as Sigma, Kungs, Fuse ODG, Philip George, and Pixie Lott. He was responsible for their signing and the release of a number of hit singles.
In 2015, Powers collaborated with fellow DJ Philip George on his debut single "Alone No More", which peaked at No. 4 on the UK Singles Chart. It was awarded gold status in the UK in April 2017. In 2016, Powers released his second single, "Love You Better". His third single, "Baby", featuring Pixie Lott, had its first live performance on the final of the sixth series of The Voice on 1 April 2017. The song peaked at No. 97 on the UK Singles Chart. Later that year, Powers was a guest presenter of The Playlist alongside Lott. His fourth single, "Heart for Sale", was released on 23 February 2018.
