This is my bio:

In 1989 David Lewis picked up classical piano, aged 5. Fast forward to present day, and hes one of the most exciting emerging artists on the UK scene. With a scorching live show, unique voice and a fistful of infectious tunes, David has been slowly but surely establishing himself as force to be reckoned with. Cross-pollinating the melodic sensibility of soul with the raw energy of rock, the 21 year-old has created a sound that is his own.

"Im totally overwhelmed by the feedback weve been getting at gigs recently" David says "Im fortunate enough to be working with a gang of musicians at the top of their game which really helps the songs and allows me to get crazy on stage too!"


An electric front-man but also a serious songwriter, David avoids the generic love song and chooses instead to talk about what is actually on his mind. Acoustic track 'Not For Sale' is a frank commentary on the aesthetic pressure we face from the media, while new song 'Hands On Her' is a tale of a how a beautiful but broken young girl deals with her insecurities.


Having performed backing vocals for Gorillaz as part of their Demon Days shows, which was broadcast on Channel 4 and E4, David then began writing and recording his new EP. Working primarily with Mercury Award nominee Lee Stanley, it is shaping up to be a raw, soulful record; at times emotive, at times funky, but always carrying the signature David Lewis sound.


"I feel Ive got a lot to prove" he states "the gigs are getting busier and busier, as is the ******** page, and with that comes the added pressure of having to deliver 110% both live and in the studio. Hopefully its going to push me to do even bigger and better things in the near future"
