Nashville singer/songwriter Sam Lewis’ new album, ‘Waiting On You,’ is one of the best releases I’ve heard this year. Lewis and his co-producer, Oliver Wood of The Wood Brothers, have created a warm, stripped-down sound that combines Lewis’ road-tested rhythm section with high-wattage guests like Darrell Scott, Will Kimbrough and Mickey Raphael.” – Vincent Harris, Greenville Journal
“Like any true soul man, Lewis’s soul seems to ooze out of his pores, never sounding forced or contrived.If you’re not already a fan, one listen should get you onboard.” – No Depression
“There’s a lot of responsibility that comes with being the new shining star on the horizon, but it’s to Sam Lewis’ credit that he hasn’t let that luster blind him to the basic tenants of his profession: To come across as soulfully honest as possible. Waiting On You is the kind of album that resonates well and will likely be a listening staple for some time to come” - PopMatters.com
We’ve been waiting on Sam Lewis to put out his new album and make another in-store appearance, and now “Waiting On You” is in-stock and he’s headed back May 30th!
Join the event
With his compelling songs, stirring melodies, and preternaturally soulful voice, Sam Lewis has quickly established himself as one of Nashville’s most talented new tunesmiths. Waiting On You – his sophomore album via Brash Music and follow-up to 2012’s self-titled debut – reverberates with earnest emotion and restless energy, rich with the intimate lyricism of folk, country’s raw integrity, and a lived-in muscularity born of Lewis’ captivating vocal timbre. Songs like “3/4 Time” and the tender title track are intuitive and organic, the rollicking “Things Will Never Be The Same” groove-powered and irresistible. Produced by The Wood Brothers’ Oliver Wood (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Shemekia Copeland) and featuring a stellar supporting cast of Music City’s finest session musicians, Waiting On You reveals Sam Lewis to be an exceptionally gifted troubadour, forthright, genuine and completely his own.
