A heartfelt vignette that cuts to the very core of Lewis as a songwriter, backed up by hooks that dig in and won’t let go, Not Done Loving You is just the song to welcome in the springtime.
You can stream the single via the ABoF SoundCloud page.
Not Done Loving You was written when Lewis lived in Liverpool and he explains, ‘I used to busk a lot on Liverpool’s Church Street and a couple of months after I broke up with my ex, she walked past whilst I was playing. Now, the break up was fine, it didn’t hurt at all until that moment. I don’t think she even saw me, but I wanted the ground to swallow me up. So I wrote a song about that feeling. I wrote the guitar part and then the rest just kinda fell out.’
Originally from the North of England, Lewis’ roots are firmly in the USA’s south west. Lewis believes in the tradition of songwriters such as Paul Simon and Brian Wilson, bringing his own lyrical eye for the absurd and sincere. 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.
To celebrate the single’s release Lewis will be playing several acoustic shows. There will also be two free entry full band shows on the 13th of April at Oporto Bar, Leeds and 14th of April at The Finsbury in Finsbury Park. Other tour dates to be announced.
Not Done Loving You is released 13th of April 2015 via Theodore Washington Recordings
