Biography

Al Lewis is a singer-songwriter from North Wales whose sound is reminiscent of the classic singer-songwriters of the 70s delivered with a modern twist.

It all began for Al back in 2007 when he co-wrote and performed the song Llosgi (Burning) on the televised‚ Song For Wales‚ competition, winning the songwriters category and coming second overall.

Al Lewis has so far released two Welsh Language albums, both spending multiple weeks at number one in the Welsh Language album charts. Al has also scooped the award for 'Best Male Artist' two years in a row (2011/12) at the BBC Radio Cymru Awards.

In 2011 Al was picked by Caffe Nero to be their Artist of the Month, performing in stores across the length and breadth of Britain. With the official release of In the Wake this led to the album entering the Amazon Top 10 Folk albums chart upon its release, gathering support and praise from eminent DJs such as Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens and Bob Harris (BBC Radio 1 / 2 / 6music)

In April 2011 Al was personally invited by Cerys Matthews to support her at her sell-out show at the PJ Hall in Bangor, where they performed the song Road Rage together on stage.

Al will be performing on the Main Stage at Wakestock Festival this July for a second-time alongside headliner Ed Sheeran.

'Our Lines Remain' will be the follow up EP to the inaugural Welsh Music Prize nominated album 'In the Wake'. It will also follow on from the 'Live on the Wire' EP which showcased Al's live performances from Abbey Rd Studios as part of Abbey Road Debuts.
