About the event
James Leonard Hewitson is a musician/songwriter from Hartlepool in the North East of England who depicts the bleakness of everyday life and his surroundings through energetic and generally happy sounding songs, taking influence from Jonathan Richman, Pavement, The Fall and many more left field, lyrics and guitar based trailblazers. He is joined live and in the studio by his band, The Relevant People.
Before the pandemic, James had shared stages with The Districts, BMX Bandits, Glasvegas, Jon Langford (The Mekons) and Boy Azooga in North East venues, as well as very early headline shows at Old Blue Last and The Waiting Room in London, and had a feature in I-D online and Spotify editorials for his first version of lo-fi post-punk song ‘The Screen’.
Songs from 2020’s album ‘Only The Noise Will Save Me’ received airplay by Steve Lamacq, John Kennedy, Tom Robinson and Amazing Radio, as well as features on Tattoo Fixers, Made in Chelsea, BT Sport and Sky Sports.
