Al Lewis

”…Al Lewis can write radio-friendly melodies in his sleep. It’s promising stuff…” Buzz Magazine, Cardiff (June 09)

”…The five songs on this EP are simple, melodic, gently uplifting, and terribly infectious. Just exquisite.” For Folks Sake (June 09)

”…Gentle harmonies which recall the hey-day of Simon & Garfunkel and Bread; lush acoustic based musical arrangements and literate songwriting all adds up to a must hear CD…” Maverick Magazine (July 09)

”…A cut above the average singer/songwriter.” R2 – Rock n Reel (July 09)

It all began back in 2007 when Al released his first two singles ‘Waiting for You’ and ‘I’ll be the Moon’ and a Welsh language EP entitled ‘Byw mewn Breuddwyd’ on his own label. Earlier that year Al had co-wrote and performed the song ‘Llosgi’ (Burning) on the televised ‘Song For Wales’ competition, winning the songwriters category and coming second overall.

Al would go on to perform slots at the ‘Wakestock Festival” alongside Mark Ronson and at the inaugural ‘Swn Festival’ in Cardiff organised by Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens. Now a regular face on the Welsh Language music scene, 2008 saw two further releases, ‘Dilyn Pob Cam’ & ‘One Way Love Affair (EP)’, gaining Al further exposure via plays on BBC 6 Music. Already in 2009 Al has released his first Welsh album reaching number one in the Welsh language album charts and a new EP (Skin & Bones) in collaboration with fellow Welsh singer/songwriter Sarah Howells.
