Artiestinformatie

Geboortedatum   07-10-1996
Land   Verenigd Koninkrijk

Op 9-jarige leeftijd leerde Lewis de gitaar te bespelen en nog geen drie jaar stond hij in Schotse pubs al zijn muziek te spelen voor publiek. Met de release van Bruise zette hij in het voorjaar een unicum neer op Spotify door als eerste artiest ooit meer dan 25 miljoen afspeelbeurten te realiseren voor een nog niet getekende artiest. Dat contract volgde later bij Vertigo. In het najaar van 2017 is Bloom zijn eerste EP. Ook vergezelde hij Rag’n’Bone Man tijdens ijn Europese concerten terwijl hij met Milky Chance in de Verenigde Staten kon touren.


Met Grace weet hij in 2018 ook de nodige aandacht te krijgen in ons land. Eind november verschijnt zijn tweede EP, Breach, met daarop de track Someone You Loved. Dat wordt, na Happy (van Pharrell Williams) de langst genoteerde Top 40-hit ooit.

Van het album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent wordt Before You Go de volgende single.

Songtekst

I fell by the wayside
Like everyone else
I hate you, I hate you, I hate you
But I was just kidding myself
Our every moment
I start to replace
Cause now that they're gone
All I hear are the words that I needed to say

When you hurt under the surface
Like troubled water running cold
Well, time can heal, but this won't

So
Before you go
Was there something I could have said
To make your heart beat better
If only I'd have known
You had a storm to weather
So
Before you go
Was there something I could have said
To make it all stop hurting
It kills me how your mind
Can make you feel so worthless
Oh
Before you go

Was never the right time
Whenever you called
Went little by little by little
Until there was nothing at all
Our every moment
I start to replay
But all I can think about
Is seeing that look on your face

When you hurt under the surface
Like troubled water running cold
Well, time can heal, but this won't

So
Before you go
Was there something I could have said
To make your heart beat better
If only I'd have known
You had a storm to weather
So
Before you go
Was there something I could have said
To make it all stop hurting
It kills me how your mind
Can make you feel so worthless
Oh
Before you go

Would we be better off by now
If I'd have let my walls come down
Maybe I'll guess we'll never know
You know, you know

Before you go
Was there something I could have said
To make your heart beat better
If only I'd have known
You had a storm to weather
So
Before you go
Was there something I could have said
To make it all stop hurting
It kills me how your mind
Can make you feel so worthless
Oh
Before you go
