Info for Things I Chose To Remember
In an intimate sanctuary of sound, Rhys Lewis finds a new home. While his poignant songwriting has racked up legions of loyal fans —and close to 300 million plays to date —the Oxfordshire-born artist has pushed his creativity to unforeseen new heights for his bewitching debut album Things I Chose To Remember. Lewis's superpower is to distil universal-feeling moments into his music with highly personal precision. Take recent single When Was The Last Time? which puts a unique twist on a break-up narrative by zeroing in on the excruciating period just before a couple’s tensions come to a head.
Things I Chose To Remember is a testament to an artist’s unleashed creativity, and stands as Lewis's most inventive and exploratory music to date. The use of synthesizers adds a looming, apocalyptic feeling to the album’s soaring closer What Wild Things Were, a vivid eco-conscious elergy to our burning planet which imagines mass animal extinctions, and was inspired by the American journalist David Wallace-Wells’s book-length imagining of the dire effects of climate change, The Uninhabitable Earth.
Under The Sun is a bright guitar-pop gem which begs for mass-singalongs at a summer festival, and What If is a soaring mea culpa in which Lewis's singing voice goes full-belt against swelling strings. Meanwhile, the gospel-inspired drama of Lonely Place is heralded by the rhapsodic sound of a full choir which is actually Lewis vocals filtered and effected.
is a truely gifted artist with song writing capabilites that clearly shine. Rhys is an accomplished solo performer, he can also perform as a duo, trio, quartet or with full backing band that is cleverly arranged with killer harmonies. Rhys Lewis & band have regular live shows at Quaglino's, Floridita London & Ronnie Scott's. He is an artist picking up momentum around London, with a reputation for being an exciting and refreshing sound. The band were also chosen by Harvey Goldsmith to join his festival line up: Harvey Goldsmith said, " I’ve worked and rocked with the best; The Who, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jools Holland and this band have impressed me with their energy, talent, and terrific song writing. They will blow the crowds away".
