Take a splash of Badly Drawn Boy, a spoonful of Jack Johnson, add a sprinkling of The Beach Boys and top off with a little Waterboys Fisherman’s Blues era and you’ll come close to Throwback Kid.Pete James has been making music in different forms since his debut cassette release back in the late 90’s.
After relocating with his family to the sunshine coast of Eastbourne, East Sussex, he found himself going back to his routes and began writing and performing songs once again on his acoustic guitar. In stepped 7Core Music and some amazing local session musicians, and Throwback Kid was born.
He released his debut Throwback Kid EP ‘Flowing With The Feeling’, in July 2017, to high acclaim from reviewers, also gaining radio airplay across various stations including BBC Sussex, and featuring on BBC Music Introducing.If happy feeling, acoustic driven pop folk is your thing then be sure to check out Throwback Kid.
Throwback Kid returns with a brand new song ‘Love The People’, out May 8th. ‘Love The People’ sounds like it could have been penned in the summer of 1968 somewhere along the USA’s west coast. Instead it was written sometime early 2019 in the dead of winter on the south coast of England, but perhaps the times haven’t changed as much as we’d hoped.
Love The People was released 8th May 2020
