Ryan's Basement Present....
Independent Venue Week
Lewis Bootle + The Yes Mess
UK singer/songwriter Lewis Bootle recently launched his second EP ‘The Seed’ with a sold out show at The Monarch in Camden.
The five-track EP - featuring the summertime anthem ‘Festival Band’ - followed its predecessor ‘Friction In The Funds’ straight into the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Top 10 chart.
Drawing influence from the likes of Bob Dylan, Jack Johnson and Jamie T, Lewis has developed his own brand of acoustic storytelling. He talks about personal experiences with both seriousness and humour, twining lyrical wit with classic melodies and an unmistakable folk-infused charm.
The Yes Mess
Stoke Newington's local legends 'The Yes Mess' bring their original brand of zany energetic sounds back to Ryan's Basement!
"An enigmatic, folky, funky, hook laden five piece that rattle the same hallucinatory cages as the Beta Band at their oddest, with elements of Syd’s Pink Floyd in the mix." (The Gladstone)
