L.A. Salami

Time, death, life, living, hope: these are the big themes from which L.A. Salami has crafted his astonishing second album, The City of Bootmakers. Lookman Adekunle Salami is a man in his mid-twenties with a restless spirit and boundless creativity. He makes charming indie-folk, songs that turn intimate tales into epic anthems and big issues into campfire laments. His 2016 debut album Dancing With Bad Grammar introduced a daring new artist and, coming less than two years later, The City Of Bootmakers is a bold step forward. It’s a record impossibly of its time. It is L.A. Salami’s state of the nation address. 

L.A. Salami (Lookman Adekunle Salami) is a singer/songwriter from London, England known for crafting magnetic blues-rock songs with a postmodern twist. Salami was fostered when he was two months old and grew up between his birth mother in Peckham, South London and his foster family in Broadstairs on the English coast. Much of his teens and early twenties were spent on the move, rarely settling in one place for more than few months at a time. It was this lifestyle that provided him with a unique insight about life in the city, something that he would later use to fuel his songwriting, both lyrically and conceptually.
