The Lewis Hamilton Band
Since their formation in August 2010 The Lewis Hamilton Band have been booked for over 400 shows from Shetland to Poland, and have appeared at most of the UK’s biggest blues festivals, including Main Stage performances at Hebden Bridge and Maryport. As a guitarist Lewis pays tribute to some of the greatest musicians of the 20th century, taking influence from people like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix and Rory Gallagher. He also incorporates playing styles from more modern blues-rock musicians such as, Joe Bonamassa, Derek Trucks and Matt Scofield. As a vocalist he has developed his own unique and powerful style of singing, while taking influence from the likes of Joe Cocker and Dave Mathews.
His debut album Gambling Machine won the Scottish New Music Award for Scottish Jazz/Blues album of the year for 2012. Candlelight & Sympathy from Empty Roads will feature on the soundtrack of a new feature film ‘Scar Tissue’. His third album Ghost Train has had numerous top reviews and acclaim from magazines and websites worldwide, and airplay in over 15 countries. In addition to his previous nominations in the 2012 and 2013 British Blues Awards and receiving two preliminary nominations in their song-writing category, Lewis has been nominated yet again as BEST YOUNG ARTIST in 2014
Lewis has performed with such notable musicians as Aynsley Lister (for whom he filled in vocals at a live show), Ryan McGarvey, Henrik Freischlader, Alan Nimmo, Chantel McGregor and Ben Poole. He also has a considerable talent for recording, and runs his own studio in Auchterarder, Scotland, where all his music is written, recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by Lewis himself
In the last year, Lewis Hamilton has released on his own label the critically acclaimed three volume series of Scottish Blues, Jock’s Juke Joint, featuring Lewis’ own tracks and those of another 50 Scottish blues artists. The series has also received a high level of coverage in the international blues scene with airplay from more than seventy radio shows across a dozen countries and prominent reviews in all the leading UK blues/roots publications, plus several others in North America and Europe. The second volume of the series was nominated as best album in the British Blues Awards 2013, while the third volume was selected as the first ever album of the month by the Independent Blues Broadcasters’ Association.
