Lewis and the Sunshine Cat
I began playing at 11 years old and since then I have had a variety of teachers and years of frustration, enlightenment and fun out of the guitar. When I was a lad, I was playing in rock bands, flamenco duos and weird jazz, pop and fusion bands, gigging every week and that aspect has not really changed as I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have a performance on the horizon and to be honest, I don’t think I’d cope very well if I didn’t. Once I left school, I got a HND in Music and started up a jazz duo and a 6 piece funk band, then with my wife Vicki, we made the move to Yorkshire & continued with the Jazz duo, The Sunshine Cat and have been performing together live, ever since.
Myself and Vicki live in a little cottage in the lovely Yorkshire Dales and have enjoyed a lot of great experiences together as partners and as musicians. Before we came to Yorkshire, we went on a month long trip to New Orleans, got a chance to play at some great clubs and gained a whole bunch of weight. Then once we returned, we started gigging, playing at many venues in Yorkshire such as Bibis, The Rum Rooms, Head Of Steam, Handmade Burger Co (Glasgow) plus many more as well as weddings and parties.
As well as performing I work as a Steel Hand/Rigger working at festivals and concerts and I also dep for a funk band when not performing in my duo. I really enjoy production and often work in my studio on my own projects, which involve a lot of visuals and foley or mixing and editing music for theatre groups etc. The idea is to earn a living from music related projects and I feel I am finally making progress. Happy Days 🙂
