Independent to the T.

 

 

 

You have released you EP your EP ‘Routes’ back in December, how has
the response been?

The response to Routes was better than i could have imagined,
stylistically it was a different avenue compared to the usual Lewis
Bootle discography but i think it was the right time to release a
track like that and i think it’s set me up well for the summer
releases.

singing some new tracks?

I sure will and i can’t wait!

 

 

 

Who will be supporting?

Okay, it’s a long list… SANSHA, DIDI, GECKO, POLLY MONEY, MARIA
FERGUSON & a special guest i cannot reveal the name of… but come

James – but don’t take this as a summary!
