The young musician has released his music online as well as performing at similar live events to promote his new work.
He added: “I’m planning on sharing my music with record labels, radio stations and blog websites to attempt to get more exposure hopefully getting to the end goal of signing a deal with a record label.”
He also shared where he is planning on performing in the near future, he stated: “I’m always finding it hard to find gigs around Leicester as the open mic scene is pretty much non-existent.
“However, I will be gigging a lot more in London and Surrey within the coming months, so stay tuned.”
Rhys Rowlands, 19, who attended the
performance, said: “I really enjoyed the gig tonight. Johnny’s EP is a credit to the work he has put into it.
“I hope a lot more people come and see his shows and enjoy it as much as the crowd did this evening.”
