No one knows the course of a journey better than Watford-born musician and songwriter Jay Lewn. From classical musical training, to a chemistry degree, then professional audio engineering for the likes of Gucci Mane and Machine Gun Kelly, all while nurturing his first love: making his own music. Inspired by the likes of Frank Ocean, Jame Blake and Sampha, the atmospheric production in his pop melodies jump with funk tinges or trickle with mellow R&B nods, bolstered by Lewn’s velvety vocal range. “Boyfriend” explores unrequited love, “Rider” is a propulsive ode to ride-or-dies, and the silky allure of escapism draws the listener in with sunshine-personified “House In The Hills”. So far, Lewn has been perfecting his showmanship at atmospheric Sofar Sounds gigs, and been making waves with performances on BBC Introducing and Hertfordshire’s Standon Calling festival, with the 26-year-old also working on his forthcoming debut EP.
