Bundaberg muso Lewis McKee has this week released a new single, which he hopes will set in motion a long list of goals and aspirations for his music career in 2023.
Coming Home is Lewis’ new release, which has evolved over the years from a draft track through to what it is today after years of performing it live acoustically.
Lewis’s style lends from a diverse range of musical influences across rock n roll, blues, country and pop.
Lewis said the track was written to illustrate the uplifting feeling of returning to your hometown.
“This song is about the feeling of knowing the people that you love are on the other side of the journey and that return is always filled with emotions of nostalgia, reverence and fond memories,” Lewis said.
“I hope when people listen to this song it can bring back the memories!
“Whether you’re on your way home these summer holidays to visit family, or missing loved ones while you’re away, use this song to help think of all the good times.
“I know I do!”
After a decade of playing in pubs and clubs, 2022 saw Lewis release his debut original “Into My Soul” and play a number of scheduled performances supporting internationally renowned artists.
Audiences have been delighted by Lewis’s ability to include a broad spectrum of genres in his performances, using a diverse skillset to deliver original songs considered left of field for a country musician.
Professional performances to-date range from small, intimate acoustic shows to larger iconic events, including festivals such as Milbi Festival, ticketed shows and large community events, where he has opened for the likes of Busby Marou, Alex Lloyd and Brad Butcher.
“Coming Home” was recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by Albatross Media in Bundaberg, QLD.
