Drowning in the two words that have the power to break the best of us, Rhys Lewis keeps the wound left by heartbreak open, by questioning ‘What If’ on his latest single.
Gripping us instantly with the raw beauty of his vocals, Rhys takes us down an emotional piano-led road paved by the captivating ability of his songwriting. The track is flooded with feelings, regret and his own self-blame for being the reason that a former relationship ended the way it did. Not being able to let go of what they had together, we hear him confess to his mistakes and swear to be a better man if he could just get another chance to make things right.
Speaking of the new single, Rhys says:
“‘What If’ came from the regret I felt from letting go of something good too soon. My mind was a mess at the time and I rushed into a decision to end things. Now thinking about her has become a bad habit, a kind of accepted addiction, like checking my phone. She changed me, and breaking up with her changed me, all in ways I’m forever grateful for. So it’s hard to keep my mind away from the idea of going back oto her, especially when the ways in which I’ve changed make me feel closer to her. I understand her more, I understand myself more. I never understood either when we were together which is why it didn’t work at the time.”
As he currently works on his debut album, set for release in early 2020, Rhys Lewis and his brilliant sound is well and truly on the rise. Following his time on the road back in May while on his European headline tour, Rhys is now set to embark on his first ever Asia tour in August, as well as wrap up the year headlining the UK.
