Edinburgh-born Lewis McLaughlin was inspired by the likes of John Martyn and Villagers to begin writing and recording his own songs. He has performed across Europe in various outfits, accompanying his father at folk shows and playing with his brother in a folk duo before going solo. Lewis performed at Folkest Festival in Italy, and showcased at Celtic Connections in 2019.
He currently lives in Glasgow, recording new music at 312 in the city with Andy Monaghan (Frightened Rabbit), which will be released through Andy's Monohands Records.
Since joining forces with Monohands Records, Lewis has been working on his debut album and evolving his musical style. The creative collaboration has taken his craft to a new and unique place that blends indie, folk, art and pop.
