Photos: Behind the Scenes with Lewis Watson

After releasing a handful of disarming EPs and a stirring debut full-length,
English singer-songwriter Lewis Watson took a half-year sabbatical before recording his sophomore effort. In contrast to his earliest efforts—titled “It’s Got Four Sad Songs On It BTW” and “Another Four Sad Songs” with tongue firmly in cheek—second record Midnight flows with confidence and optimism, while still retaining Watson’s subtlety. The musician is currently on tour in the US through late May before heading to Australia. Photographer Sam Keeler caught up with Watson during his Portland stop at the Crystal Ballroom for some portraits and to capture his live show.
