RHYS Lewis has released a new single, Hold On To Happiness, and a European headline tour in May 2019.

Touring extensively over the past couple of years, Lewis has opened for artists such as Sigrid, Freya Ridings, JP Cooper and James TW while his headline shows draw fans that queue overnight to be first in to his electrifying sold out shows, from London to Amsterdam and New York to Berlin.

The past 12 months have been a whirlwind for the London-based singer. With eight songs and an EP release to date, Rhys is fast catching the attention of critics and fans internationally, with his music reaching an ever-growing global fan-base.

Originally from Oxford, the 27-year-old singer-songwriter crafts his songs with a maturity that belies his years and he has become known for dissecting his own experiences with an emotional honesty and bravery, making it irresistible to listeners worldwide.

He has had heavy support from BBC Introducing, recording two live sessions, performing at a BBC Introducing show in London, received critical acclaim from key UK press, and most impressively, performing the British Music Embassy stage at SXSW Festival 2018.

Heart-breaking ballad No Right To Love You was released last May and has quietly grown through the year to help his catalogue boast over 90 million streams. 2019 shows no signs of slowing down for rising star Rhys Lewis.
