By on Monday, 7th August 2017 at 9:00 am
 

Oxfordshire singer/songwriter Lewis Watson released a new album earlier this year. ‘midnight’, which followed his 2014 breakthrough LP ‘the morning’, came out around the time of SXSW 2017. While I wasn’t impressed with his live performance at St. David’s Bethell Hall during our week in Austin, I hope all the kinks have been worked out with his performing his newest material. This past Saturday on Twitter, he shared a new tour for September, hitting English and Irish towns. I believe the tickets to this tour are on sale now. They will be followed by a few Continental dates before he heads back to North America. For more on Lewis Watson right here on TGTF, come through.
