M meets… Sam Lewis
Sam Lewis is a connoisseur of classic songwriting, be it blues, country, folk, soul or pop, which he has shaped into his own sound.
Sam has been playing the guitar since the age of 11 and a chance meeting with KT Tunstall in park in north-west London park led to Sam becoming her guitar player for her world tours from 2004 to 2009.
Sam’s released his debut album Everything You Are in 2007. The critically-acclaimed release features KT’s vocals on the song Another Lifetime. Second album The City and I has a fuller sound to the contemplative debut record and perhaps takes inspiration from working with Kenyan musicians and Damon Albarn for a project for Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings as well as spending time working in New York.
The City and I is scheduled for release in early 2012. The five-date City and I tour begins on 1 December at The Donkey in Leicester and concludes at Proud in Camden Town on 14 December. Buy tickets here.
