Steve Hewitt

My name is Steve Hewitt, I'm 29years old, and I'm a singer/singer songwriter based in Edenbridge, Kent.

My love of music came about after listening to Buddy Holly when I was 14, but my approach to music changed drastically when I heard David Gray's White Ladder for the first time; that's when I put the electric guitar down and bought my first acoustic guitar and started to write.

My aim has always been to write lyrics that have meaning and purpose that the listener can relate to and  empathise with.

To best describe my genre, it would be acoustic soul pop, with hints of
blues/folk and indie.

My main influences started at the already mentioned
Buddy Holly, on to David Gray, Bob Dylan, John Legend and Fink.

James Medhurst has been in love with music since he got his first guitar at the age of 8 and intends to keep playing all the way up to 80.

After fronting the pop punk band Wayside Kings he has now decided to take his acoustic guitar in one hand, a cup of tea in the other, and explore a solo career.

James’ style is mostly taken from the American alternative scene.  His influences range from Counting crows, Taking Back Sunday, New Found Glory to Incubus, which he uses to fuse his own take of soulful pop rock. 

His aim is to create a catalogue of uplifting songs that reflect the way he see the world.
