My name is Lewis Phillips and I am a singer-songwriter living on the south coast of England.
In 1994 I was blown away by R.E.M.s monster album and just knew then, that I had to play guitar and make music of my own. I had no aspirations to be some famous rock star, just to make music that mattered to me and that was hopefully enjoyed by others. I wanted to create music that would mean something to a listener, just as the music of bands such as R.E.M. has meant so much to me.
From then on, I set about learning to create music, to write songs and to develop my own style and sound. Along the way I drew inspiration and schooling from other artists such as Wilco, Neil young, The Minus 5, Pink Floyd and particularly Grant Lee Buffalo, The Beach Boys and Ken Stringfellow.
I quickly realised that the writing process was very cathartic and personal for me and hope that this sincerity is conveyed In my music. I’ve tried really hard to grow, evolve and finesse a sound and style that’s mine.
And so here I am, just about to hit the wrong side of thirty and I have a body of songs that I have worked hard to amass. March 2012 was a big month for me as I recorded an EP of my songs produced by and featuring the legendary Ken Stringfellow.
Please keep checking in at lewisphillips.co.uk to find out more about this exciting project and to hear the results!
There are demos of my songs you can audition here on my website, they’re a little rough and ready but hopefully the songs shine through.
Thanks for stopping by,
