Hometown-proud musician Louis Dunford is here to tell you the real story of North London

Singer-songwriter Louis Dunford began his career taking the stage at local open mics, and now the North London native is gracing some of London's most iconic stages – including a sold-out show at his dream venue, the Union Chapel. His latest single, 'The Boy Who Could Fly,' presents a touching tribute to a stranger who lost his life, and in turn, forced the singer to reflect on his own deeply. To celebrate Dunford’s latest release, HUNGER pops around to his hometown as he takes us to the pubs, parks, and streets he grew up on via his film camera.

Popham Road: One side of my family have lived on Popham estate for over 60 years. My nan still lives here now.

Popham Street: I named my second EP after it.

Morland Mews: The other side of my family live here. I spent my whole childhood here. I named my first EP after it.

The Pitch: Where me and my cousins and our mates would spend our days playing football. I was decent in goal till my cousin sprained my wrist so badly I was forced to retire early and write poems in my phone from the side lines.

The Cally: This is the only place where me and mates would get served with our fake ID’s. We used to buy big bottles of WKD and Smirnoff Ice every weekend. To this day the smell of either makes me sick.

The Hemingord: The local. Our favourite pub. The Hemmy or as my cousin christened it “The Steve Buschemi”.

Henry Hicks: Our boy Henry. Murdered on the street. North London remembers.
