Singer songwriter Lewis Watson kicked off his UK tour in Portsmouth on Tuesday as performed in a front of a packed out Wedgewood Rooms crowd. Lewis is set to release his new album midnight this Friday (24th March) as the singer showed off some of his new music on the night. Slowlights joined Lewis on the night as the band certainly managed to warm the stage up in style. They played their new single I Tried So Hard which had a hint of Coldplay to it among their original sounding voice. They also played A Dream I Had and So Far which really got the crowd in the mood and you could tell although not everyone would of heard of this band, they managed to win over a lot of fans. With a new EP set to be released in 2017 for Slowlights, there is certainly a lot of promise with this band.
Lewis Watson then went to the stage as he played song from his upcoming album including his latest songs forever and deep the water. It was also nice to see Lewis perform some of his older songs from his debut album the morning such as Bones and Stay. The lighting was superb throughout the evening which really added to this magical evening. Julie Thorp joined Lewis on the keyboard during his set and her skills really shined through on the night and added to the softness of Lewis’ voice superbly. The singer has certainly got a bright future ahead as he managed to connect with the Portsmouth crowd so well and provided a great stage presence throughout.
