Sam Lewis takes "Loversity" to Utrecht and Eindhoven next week26-02-2020
Nashville based singer, songwriter guitarist Sam Lewis has been dubbed ‘a modern Townes Van Zandt’, and this latest project heralded as ‘the place where feel-good music meets vital social commentary.’ Whether crossing genres or state lines, he has pieced together a story people need to hear.
Lewis’ latest record Loversity is composed of 14 tracks that Lewis has spent over a year and a half writing and playing for others. Since Waiting on You, his debut, his classic style remains present yet matured, with a more refined worldview, “These newer songs have been harder to write, but extremely necessary given the current climate I find the world in.” Recorded at Southern Ground Studios with engineer and co-producer Brandon Bell, the album spans from upbeat songs like the title track “Loversity” to the darker “One in the Same,” an electric guitar heavy ballad with a driving force reminiscent of the Black Keys’ Brothers. As current events in the world divide the masses based on difference, Sam Lewis’ new album is a soul-filled, catchy collection of reminders that diversity and unity can co-exist.
While it bears the sonic landmarks of roots music’s most fertile ground, the songwriting of Sam Lewis is born of a landscape that can only be felt, not seen. His music is native to the infinite expanse that is exposed when human attention is full, and focused inward – harvested solely by the nuanced rhythm of love. Sam’s songs are rooted in the energy that defines this harmonious frontier, the space that unifies the human experience in each of us. It’s the anchored spirit in this incubated territory of soul for which Sam Lewis works to celebrate and elevate with the tones of rock & roll, rhythm & blues and a country-folk muse.
Next week Sam Lewis is in the Netherlands for two gigs:
03/03 Utrecht, NL - TivoliVredenburg with Judy Blank
04/03 Eindhoven, NL - Rozenknopje
