Ricky Lewis

Ricky Lewis lands June residency at Pianos, next dates are 06.21 & 06.28

Folk rock up and comer Ricky Lewis has announced he will be taking up residency at Pianos throughout the month of June. The former Dear Lions singer kicked off his residency one Thursday June 7 and will continue his slew of performances for the remaining Thursdays in June, the full schedule can be found here.

Lewis also confirmed with The Deli that he is preparing to release his debut full length record later this summer, with his first single “Gauntlet In The Sun” gaining steady traction on Stereogum and Paste. The album was produced by Rod Sherwood (Au Revoir Simone) and mixed by Alex Lipsen (Phosphorescent, Kurt Vile). If “Gauntlet” is any indication of things to come, the album is sure to be an intense roots record for the summer. - Mackenzie Cummings-Grady

From The Deli NYC's submissions: Ricky Lewis

Ricky Lewis is not one to mince words. The ex-bandmate from The Wools, a high energy rock band, has now opted instead for a reflective record of gently strummed indie dream folk for his new 'Serious Mistress' EP. The album is a history of cherished memories ('Clay Baby'), and completely made-up memories ('Cold War Dreams') all set over an unassuming guitar, and a couple of unexpected layers of slide guitar and piano where you'll least expect to hear them.

The EP may be tough at times to take, but there's a kind of justice to it all. Like the way Neil Young's honesty makes us all feel when we're having a rough day. Check out opening track 'Stop The Devil-Winged From Flight' below. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
