LEW is a Singaporean singer-songwriter who is inspired by acoustic and folk tunes. He was born and raised in Hong Kong, but came back to Singapore to serve his National Service and saw it as an opportunity to write about new things as well as to connect with the local music scene.
He started singing and playing the guitar when he was thirteen but started song-writing at the age of seventeen. He writes about the raw and metaphorical ways that he feels about his experiences and using the simplicity of a guitar and his voice, he materialises these ideas.
LEW participated and completed the Noise Singapore Music Mentorship Program, and was very honoured to receive the NOISE Award for 2015.
Artists like Birdy, Passenger and Ed Sheeran inspire him as he not only appreciates the way they sound, but also how they have stayed true to themselves as artists in their niche music genres.
He has performed for many festivals and on various stages including "Youth Fest" at The Esplanade Concourse, 'MOSAIC Music Series' at The Esplanade Outdoor Theatres, "Bandwagon Nights' at Hard Rock Cafe and was also part of the SCAPE Invasion Lineup for 2016.
LEW's debut album 'Lullacry' was released in July and has already garnered over 1 million plays on Spotify. It also hit #1 on the Singapore iTunes Charts, #6 in China, #9 in Taiwan, #11 in Hong Kong and #12 in Indonesia respectively.
"Anyone who meets LEW will fall immediately in love with his new-on-the-scene vibe and his cute smile."
