Link Lewis builds a Foundation for the future on new single

There’s a lot of mellow, downtempo RnB doing the rounds at the moment, and the latest to throw his crooner’s hat in the ring is Huddersfield pop singer-songwriter and producer Link Lewis.

On debut single Foundation (out now on Spotify & Apple Music) he sings with a soulful and smooth vocal tone not a million miles away from The Weeknd, and with a low-slung bedroom groove that would make D’Angelo proud. The jazzy flourishes of guitar and atmospheric backing vocals are the icing on a very appealing cake, and an impressive debut song.

“My writing process always starts at the piano. Sometimes, I’ve written every element of a song before I even start recording, whether that be a lyric, melody line, harmony or vocal hook” explains Link Lewis about the track. “In the first few hours it’s just myself, my piano, sheets of A4 and a pencil. I think Foundation introduces my sound well – I don’t want to be defined by one genre. I love the fatness and rawness of Hip-Hop beats, the melody and harmonies of RnB and the tones and grooves of Jazz music, so you can expect to hear all of this in my music. Lyrically, this track is pretty classic and relatable – the scenario of a man being there for a woman during difficult times and allowing someone to be that stability and structure in your life.”
