Lewis Watson Biography
Oxford’s singer-songwriter Lewis Watson made his mark after creating his own cottage-industry and gradually building his own fan-base.
Watson first started playing after receiving a guitar for his sixteenth birthday. “I’ve never had lessons,” he admits.
“I just enjoyed playing guitar so much. I’d play for hours a night, and try out new things to make sure it didn’t get stale.”
In the summer of 2010, Lewis uploaded a cover of Bombay Bicycle Club’s Swansea to YouTube and received enough positive feedback to create a succession of other home-filmed performances of songs by artists such as City and Colour, Ben Howard and Bon Iver.
His economically-produced debut EP It’s Got Four Sad Songs On It BTW topped the iTunes singer-songwriter chart on the first day of release, outselling the likes of Adele, Madonna and Ed Sheeran.
Watson eventually inked a deal with Warner Bros. Records.
