British Talent - Lewis Watson @levvis_

I've been watching Lewis Watson for a while now, not literally obviously, I mean musically. I first came across a cover he did on youtube, I subscribed and I was pleasantly surprised by more of the ones he uploaded. With just his voice and his guitar Lewis puts some, I wouldn't say twists, but interesting looks on songs. He strips them back and makes them extremely simplistic must I really admire in an artist because sometimes theres just to much rif raff you know?  

The 19 year old singer, songwriter recently did a track with Krept and Konan, also released his A64 and he's sitting pretty on over a million video views on his youtube channel so it looks like big things may be coming for him in the future.  Below is his cover of Kanye West, Twista And Jamie Foxx's beaaaaautiful song Slow Jamz, his making-teen-girls-scream original song Bones which I really like. With time, development and a few sessions with some songwriters to bounce off ideas, I see a new Ed Sheeran coming on......
