James Leonard Hewitson – Care Less, Love Less

jlhThe debut single by UK based singer-songwriter James Leonard Hewitson has been building momentum for over 18 months, when BBC Introducing first played his song in October 2014. But Hewitson wasn’t ready yet for a full release and career due to college and inexperience. But in the meantime he kept performing live. “Care Less, Love Less” is an ‘alternative’ folk song with powerpop tendencies. It’s about those life transitionary periods when you realise ánd accept that your attitudes has changed. A joyful summer song about reflection and moving forward.
