Nashville’s Sam Lewis heads to the UK next February

Nashville-based country blues and soul singer, Sam Lewis, begins a lengthy tour of the UK in February next year. Renowned for his rich soulful vocals, well-crafted songs, roots country sound and blue-eyed soul, Sam Lewis has collaborated with such musical luminaries as John Prine and Kacey Musgraves, while Chris Stapleton described him as “a modern Townes Van Zandt”. Sam Lewis’ debut album ‘Waiting On You’ received widespread critical acclaim, and featured support from legendary country guitarist, Kenny Vaughan, along with Darrell Scott, the McCrary Sisters, Gabe Dixon and Willie Nelson’s harmonica player, Mickey Raphael. Although the record was very well received, Lewis’ booking agency got bought out at the time of its release, leaving him with limited opportunities to tour to promote it.

However, in 2015, Sam Lewis caught a break when he was offered a support slot on Chris Stapleton’s tour for the ‘Traveler’ album, and he’s since gone on to sell-out shows in his own right. His recent album, ‘Loversity’, released in May 2018 is made up of 14 tracks, of which Lewis says, “These newer songs have been harder to write, but extremely necessary given the current climate I find the world in.” Recorded at Southern Ground Studios with engineer and co-producer Brandon Bell, the album is comprised of mainly original material, but also includes ‘Accidental Harmony’, a lullaby that fellow Nashville songwriter John Mann wrote for his firstborn child, and ‘Natural Disaster’, a Loudon Wainwright song.
