Video Premiere: David Lewis “Unswept Leaves”

With a lovely vocal melody, David Lewis draws us into his warm musical world among his friends.  ‘Unswept Leaves’ is taken from the newly-released ‘Among Friends’, which is Lewis’s fifth album.  It’s a full six years since his last collection and he’s moved in a new direction with percussion coming to the fore and going electric.  What remains the same is his gentle folk delivery and the collaboration with excellent players, including the likes of Patrick Berkery (The War On Drugs).

‘Among Friends’ was produced by Wesley Stace (also-known-as John Wesley Harding), a long-time friend and musical collaborator.  Stace describes the new record: “This is David’s most ambitious album yet, combining his best songs with a beautiful studio and wonderful musicianship: the usual suspects, yes, but some superb players on a wide range of instruments. And, as ever, ‘Among Friends’ is made only for the pleasure of making the record, among friends, its promise fulfilled even as it is recorded.” Enjoy.
