What a double header !
The first of many double header gigs in 2013 with Lewis to watch out for.
Lewis Hamilton are Scotland's hardest working Blues-Rock trio. Having played hundreds of gigs since their formation in late 2010 and releasing two successful studio albums, they have developed a powerful style of blues-rock that combines blazing guitar work and traditional blues song writing.
The band have played at many prestigious events across the United Kingdom, from Shetland Blues Festival all the way to Hebden Blues Festival in Yorkshire. Now under the wing of Red Rock Management (Germany) they are now pushing out into the rest of England and Europe for the rest of the year and are currently working on a third studio album to be released for 2013.
For this special gig they team up with Nashvilles own Jer Gregg.
Playing from the heart of his Midwestern roots, Jer Gregg delivers a vibe heavily influenced by singer/songwriters, a la Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Jeff Buckley. He also takes his cues from his home state of Indiana, where John Mellencamp is legend. Add in the drive of the Black Crowes and a little country influence songwriting and youve got his brand of rocking, Americana music. Jer released his first self-titled EP in January of 2010. Its a record that has served him well as a spring board for his career. A new EP called 'OTIS' has just been released and has had great reviews.
He's a story-teller. Like Petty and Dylan who came before him and Ryan Bingham and Ray LaMontagne who are doing it now, Jer is telling his tales through his music. He smartly surrounds himself with players who can deliver and have first-class playing credits in their own right. He gives his all each and every night he's on stage and doesn't stop until the lights go up. It's a show that garners attention while inviting the audience to join in. You don't just "watch" Jer perform, you experience it. Hand crafted, American music - that's Jer Gregg.
