Archy Thomas from Bourne has his new single Yesterday played on BBC Radio Lincolnshire Introducing
A talented musician has had a single he wrote and recorded in his bedroom played on regional radio.
Archy Tomás, a former Bourne Grammar School pupil, had his new single called Yesterday played on BBC Introducing Lincolnshire on the county’s radio station on Saturday, February 29.
The 17 year-old, who studies music production at Access Creative College in Lincoln, said: “It was quite surreal to hear my single on the radio.
“It meant that someone had taken the time to listen to the single and picked it over other material which meant a lot to me.
“Getting it on the radio was pretty good because it was nice to get one foot in the door.”
BBC Music introducing sees amateur musicians upload their music which is then chosen to be played on a weekly show on each local radio station.
Archy added:“It was quite weird to release the single to be honest because I had released another one before but that was a long time ago.
“I had this one written for a while and it’s about my estranged father.
“I’ve always been into music since I was eight or nine.
“I started out playing the ukele and then the guitar and it slowly developed into anything I could get my hands on really.”
Archy, who lives in Bourne town centre, hopes to have a career in music and performs gigs at places such as the Masons Arms in the town, as well as The Whistle Stop in Tallington.
Yesterday can be streamed on Spotify and Soundcloud and downloaded from the Apple Store and Amazon.
