Name: Luke Botham


Age:  19

Hometown: Scarborough


Bio: I’m a student Journalist at the University of Lincoln with a strong interest in radio.

I tend to favour alternative and indie music, but really like pop too- anything from Katy Perry and Two Door Cinema Club through to things like All Time Low and Kids in Glass Houses! Really not that fussy. The one genre I really can’t be doing with though is dubstep, it’s awful!


I’ll be mainly focusing on the  local pop and alternative scene,  doing interviews and writing about local gigs.


You can follow my twitter @Lifeasluke. I tend to tweet about my day to day life and the views on there are my own and not those of Tremors.
