FRESH from a series of live shows, Island musician Lewis Shepperd is celebrating the success of his new single.
Far Away, his second single after debut Me, racked up almost 9,000 YouTube views in just three weeks.
The Platform One graduate has seen his star rise after playing the IW Festival, Bestival and Camp Bestival, and opening the BBC Introducing Solent stage at this year’s Cowes Week. He also played the Fairweather Festival at the weekend.
Earlier this year, the Sandown singer songwriter was chosen to perform at the Open Mic UK final at the Birmingham NEC — an opportunity to impress a huge crowd and catch the eye of record company scouts.
Lewis, 23, said: “Next, I plan to release a string of singles with music videos. Me was featured in Music Week, it’s been BBC Introducing Solent’s tip of the week and it’s been played a few times after that. They are both on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.
“I’ve done all this by myself, so now I’m on the search for a manager or a label to help me go to the next step.”
