Seventeen year old Londoner Roman Lewis exudes a confidence and wryness to his craft that belies his youth. He delivers it with an expression that evokes almost a curious midway point between Jamie T and Rufus Wainwright. Unique and compelling. Distinctive and playful.
Having longed to be a dancer back from the age of eight (a sudden growth spurt at fourteen put paid to that), and a dalliance on the theatrical stage performing as Charlie Simpson in a short-lived Busted musical, it’s music that Roman has long surrounded himself by and it’s music that should soon become his signature.
