British Singer Songwriter – Lewis Fieldhouse
London-based Lewis Fieldhouse creates unapologetic alternative pop, with the raw touch of the American south-west. A story-teller at heart, Lewis has a lyrical eye for the absurd and sincere, offering up snippets of life coupling humour with honesty. His music evokes the lush sound of The Beach Boys and Father John Misty, with acoustic flair and undeniable hooks. In the past couple of years, Lewis’ work has caused a positive stir amongst music blogs like the The 405 and The Vinyl District, with It’s All Indie crowning him “one of the most exciting singer-songwriters in London at the moment.”
In Liverpool, Lewis was part of the burgeoning grass roots indie scene and counts Dan Croll, Mikhael Paskalev and All We Are as friends. He also makes up one of the four in alt rock outfit The Old Silent, who toured with Morcheeba on their last full UK tour.
Now a solo artist, Lewis Fieldhouse released his first single – ‘Not Done Loving You’, this past Spring. A tale of lost love and the feeling of ‘wanting the ground to swallow you up’ after a break up, it’s a moving and musically skilled offering that will leave you wanting more from this young man.
His most recent single release, “Goodbye”, is a nostalgic ode to summer love with sweet and gentle vocals over an acoustic guitar, which hit the airwaves late August 2015.
The British singer-songwriter says of Goodbye: “For a while before this song was written I’d been writing some pretty deep stuff lyrically and I really wanted to leave that behind for a little while (spoiler: it turned into a long time). I had the image in my mind of someone holding an umbrella upside down in the rain, running around catching the drops, like something Winnie The Pooh would do I guess. So that was the nucleus of the song, this innocent game of catching raindrops.
“I got some chords together, and a riff, and started to play around with the feeling of that space. The sticky heat of summer, the sting I was feeling after a fling had taken a nosedive. Then it all came together. I wanted to get back to the fun of summer: life isn’t about moping about something you weren’t sure about anyway. Get back out there and catch some raindrops!”
