23-year old Rhys Lewis never really actively concerned himself about his presence on the Internet. He had to take various jobs to get by. Today he lives in London and in preparation for his debut album he visited music cities such as Nashville, Berlin, Stockholm and Los Angeles. His voice communicates a lot of soul and the stories which his songs tell are usually of a melancholic nature. When people people compare him to Bill Withers he says, “My songs are soulful, but they are not Soul.” More than a million people have viewed his ballad “Reason to Hate You” on YouTube.
