With rich soulful vocals, well-crafted songs, country and blue-eyed soul Sam Lewis is connecting the dots. With his compelling songs, stirring melodies and soulful voice Sam Lewis has quickly established himself as one of Nashville’s most talented new tunesmiths.
In an ideal world Sam would be playing bigger rooms than those he presently does play, but until you get there you have to work with what you have.
For his 2012 debut, Lewis’s country roots were packed with Al Green-style soul. On his latest album, the 2015 “Waiting on You”, he’s still soaked with soul, but more in a wistful Van Morrison mode, he’s backed by the cream of Nashville’s studio musicians – the album received a top review from Mojo and featured in the Telegraph’s list of top country albums from 2015.
Ours is a solo acoustic gig and the songs and voice stand or fall on merit alone – he has a phenomenal voice and his songs are multi-faceted gems which fall into an intersection between soul, blues and country that doesn’t see too many visitors, but that isn’t the only thing to make him stand out.
Sam has toured here before but usually plays shows in the south – we’re very happy to have the opportunity to host him here in Leeds.
“…he sounds from another time, or timeless. Either way, good.” – **** Sylvie Simmons, Mojo Magazine
