Los Angeles-based folk singer/songwriter Michelle Lewis might be revving up to release her full length All That’s Left on October 19th, but while we’re waiting around for that big day (2 more weeks!), we’ve got the exclusive premiere of her new track “How” to share with you. A slowly layering song, gorgeous piano operates as the spine to it all, branches of sound coming off of it and blending in with Lewis’ celestial sounding, twang-tinged vocals. A delicate reaction to a very introspective question, Michelle Lewis takes us on a journey with “How” that will leave us questioning our own paths in life as well.
Explains Lewis of the track, “‘How‘ ended up being one of my favorite tracks on the album. Vocally, it’s a different kind of song than I’ve done before. I had written it on electric guitar, but knew I wanted piano to be the lead instrument. I’m really happy about how it all came together in the recording.”
