payson lewis entertains with cinematic visuals in new video for “hotel suite”

Payson Lewis just released his newest music video for his song, “Hotel Suite!” The video has a cinematic edge that really makes you feel as if you were transported into a movie. 

Lewis himself played a couple of different characters in the video, which added a sort of comedy factor to it. Whether he was himself or one of the workers at the hotel, his persona throughout the video was absolutely colorful and really added to the movie-esque feel of the video. He played these characters really well and it was very entertaining! A cool aspect of this video was the vintage feel to it. From the layout of the screen to the coloration of the video, it was spot on! 

One of the greatest parts of this video was when they were transported out of the rundown, old, and dirty motel room, to what seemed to be their “perfect vacation.” This scene in the video was attention-grabbing and just so fun. It played with the theme of the song being how upon entering a hotel room, you can be anyone you want to be. 

If you enjoy the video for “Hotel Suite,” check out Payson Lewis on social media, as well as his debut album, Take Me Apart!

Been noodling around the internet, looking for new tunes to tantalize your eardrums for a while on this gorgeous Thursday? Well, you can stop right here and hang out for a while because we’ve got the exclusive streaming premiere of Payson Lewis‘ new EP Take Me Apart. Lewis – a musician hailing from Philadelphia and residing in Los Angeles – brings his fresh, invigorating vocals to upbeat, pop instrumentals in six gorgeous tracks laid out before us on this EP. And though “Take Me Apart” and “Can’t Go Back” exist as slower, more practiced ballads, we see no reason for this to not be a go-to set for next year’s festival season.

Explains Lewis:

Take Me Apart is like a wild ride down my pop-nostalgia super highway. When I was writing and making this record, I loved following every stylistic twist and turn and seeing where it took me. It was so fun not to get pigeonholed into one specific sound, but instead letting the energy and authenticity be the cohesive thread that leads you through the record’s narrative. It’s definitely an EP that was meant to be played down from top to bottom. You know, just like a road-trip adventure, you just gotta fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride.

So, why not?

Payson Lewis just released the video for his latest single “When Love Was Young”.  The video opens up to beach with a beautiful sunset, then cuts to Payson singing and playing piano in the living room. We then see Payson walking on the beach with a girl holding hands.  “So you go go go back, when you love somebody— you let them get away, get away, but what’s done is never done,”  sings Payson on “the one that got away.”

The video is touching, with the scenes of the beach and a happy couple reunited.  The video for “When Love Was Young” is an acoustic version which gives us a glimpse at Payson Lewis’ talents which include his amazing and bone-chilling vocals and his ability to beautifully handle a piano.  The video to “When Love Was Young” had me tearing up and I hope you find it equally as sweet!
