Rhys Lewis is
Rhys aims for his music to feel genuine, and compares himself to his inspirations including ‘The Temptations’, “They’re real, they’re authentic and I hope that with a modern twist, that’s what my songs feel like”. The 23 year old from Oxford has an incredible ability to intertwine the hollow and dark moment of love’s ending with a positive upbeat vibe making the track unnaturally addictive. Boe Weaver, producer of ‘Waking Up Without You’, states how Rhys has an art for “capturing a song with minimal elements”, which is certainly evident through his performances.
2016 for Rhys consisted of sold-out headline gigs and intimate acoustic sets, including a performance for the infamous Sofar Sounds, featuring unheard tracks including ‘Don’t Wanna Believe It’, which you can watch here. Rhys’ full length album is expected to arrive this summer, following headline shows at Oxfords Cellar Bar and London’s Borderline.
