(1) British based ‘one man band’, writer and musician; David Lewis. Mixing epic “rock-influenced” with electro melodies and a cohererant progressive sound reminiscent of major bands such as Porcupine Tree, it is easy to get lost in a magical world of imagery created through Lewis’ work. Songs from ‘Fountain Of Youth’ may be solely musical based, but their lyrics scream out to the listener as they become part of his musical world - Truly breathtaking. Albums such as Disregard Your Boundaries and Fountain Of Youth certainly make their mark oozing the listeners ears with an gallant array of crisply-perfected melodies, riffs and creativity. The sound is simply unique and remarkably refreshing.

(3) British singer-songwriter David Lewis’s well-received first CD ‘No Straight Line’ was issued in 1995 on the now defunct Austin-based Dejadisc label. Containing songs written and performed with a 1970s British contemporary folk feel (Nick Drake, Al Stewart, Sandy Denny) the album was produced by John Wesley Harding and Scott Mathews and featured Peter Buck from R.E.M. on mandolin.
David Lewis’s second CD ‘For Now’ was released by Appleseed Recordings in October 2001. The album, again produced by John Wesley Harding (this time with Chris von Sneidern), was recorded in San Francisco and contains eleven new songs (including one cover version, Nick Drake’s ‘Northern Sky’). Moving closer to folk-rock than the first collection, several tracks feature a full band with Chuck Prophet on electric guitar and Al Stewart himself sings harmonies on ‘You Don’t Know’.
