Following over 750,000 streams for four stellar singles in the past 12 months and widespread press, radio and Spotify playlist support, soulful UK singer-songwriter Link Lewis is back to finish the year off with a bang with his new track Always Be There. The new song showcases his smooth RnB vocals and relatable lyrics against a backdrop of melancholy keys and pounding EDM synths.
“Always Be There was the perfect opportunity for me and Nick to say thank you to all the loved ones we’ve lost over the years, in particular our grandparents, who have supported us from the very beginning,” explains Lewis on the new track. “This was probably the fastest we’ve ever written and produced a track. The emotions were already there, so it was just a case of getting it all out on paper and into the speakers! We’ve come so far in such a short space of time it would be amazing for them to see what we’ve achieved on our journey. So – this one’s for them, and anyone else looking down on us.”
Taking inspiration from all branches of the tree, the Link Lewis sound blends the buttery tones of jazzy RnB with the slick hooks and pounding grooves of hip-hop and modern pop. With a wealth of experience writing, producing and performing music, he’s already released a string of acclaimed singles this year on his Ellemer Records Label, a tight-knit and collaborative collective that’s also home to fellow RnB artist and recent BBC One TV star Jordan Higo and talented musician and producer Nick Keliris. His songs have been heard multiple times on on BBC Introducing, and he’s been acclaimed by CLASH, GigSoup, Born Music, Vents Magazine and On:Yorkshire Magazine.
