Sid Lewis
Just a simple guitar player experimenting with new songs and sounds. Gigging around London.
Tell me about your history? How did you get where you are now?
For many years been "peddling my wares" to those who want to listen and sometimes those who don't. I have played, with and without band the usual London Venues (Rock Garden, Half Moon (Putney), Kingston's Green Fair et al.
Have you performed live in front of an audience? Any special memories?
Yes I play live. I enjoy it very much but it does get me nervous! Winning the Kingston heat of Battle of the Bands at The Peel a few years ago.
Your musical influences
Jimi Hendrix, Bjork, Bill Nelson, Elvis Costello, David Byrne, Joni Mitchell, Jeff Buckley and a wide variety of others.
