About Lewis Watson
In 2012, Lewis Watson self-released his debut EP, It’s Got Four Sad Songs On It, BTW, after establishing a devoted online fan-base. It topped the iTunes singer-songwriter chart on the first day of release, outselling the likes of Adele, Madonna and Ed Sheeran in the process, and landed the then nineteen-year-old singer-songwriter a deal with Warner Bros. Records.
Lewis’s profile has continued to grow exponentially ever since. After headlining London’s KOKO and playing two sets at last summer’s Glastonbury, Lewis is now set to release his long-awaited debut album, The Morning, on 16 June.
The album demonstrates Lewis’ growing powers as a songwriter. It combines fully-realised reworkings of select songs that emerged as sketches on his early EPs together with the best of the sixty unreleased songs that he wrote last year. The newer material – including the first single, Stay, takes Lewis’s stripped-back guitar-and-voice roots and constructs a richer, more textured sound around him.
Lewis’s shows grow in size with each tour. with the profile of his audience similarly evolving in new directions. He’ll follow release of The Morning with his biggest headline tour to date, which includes The Institute Birmingham on Friday 3 October.
“Looks set to replicate Ed Sheeran’s success...his emotionally open storytelling qualities will resonate with the A Team singer’s huge fanbase.” – Sunday Times
