Chris Lewington is our next Wordsmith of the Week that we are elated to be shining the spotlight on. Lewington is a Kent based singer-songwriter, and veteran of the industry. Having previously achieved both mainstream and cult success with The Silence and The Bicycle Thieves Chris Lewington now seeks further solo success with new project ‘Riverside’.
Riverside is an accomplished 12-Track project, with all the best elements of 60s and 70s singer-songwriter style, fused with his own eccentric and idiosyncratic style. Riverside is a completely solo venture for Lewington, having written, performed and produced every track on the album his talent, skill and experience is evident.
The project, created in his home of rural Kent is infused by British countryside inspiration, bringing with it a nostalgic, comforting and strangely familiar vibe.
Chris Lewington has already had a success and eclectic career, having performed on the same stages as The Breeders, Jah Wobble and more. Yet Riverside is perhaps his greatest accomplishment to date, benefitting from his wealth of experience, influence and skill developed over his musical career.
Listen now to Riverside, and see the talent for yourself.
