Sam Lewis to perform live at the Treehouse Café

Sam Lewis, once called “a modern Townes Van Zandt,” will perform at the Treehouse Café at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 16.

Tickets, $20 for reserved table seating, are on sale at www.treehousebainbridge.com.

Admission to the show is 21-and-older only.

Lewis has collaborated with everyone from Leon Russell to The Wood Brothers. He’s often labeled with some form of the word “soulful,” though his style meets at a juncture of many different genres.

His latest album “Loversity,” landed Lewis a spot on Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists to Watch” list.

According to the magazine, ““He’s been working as an under-the-radar but locally-beloved artist in East Nashville since 2009, when he moved there to write songs … and work at Walmart. His focus on the music that moves him over flashier day jobs or the lure of the social scene is what’s kept Lewis quietly honing his own soulful breed of Americana for years, and scored him opening slots for Stapleton and Marty Stuart. Though Lewis has released two excellent LPs, it’s his forthcoming album, ‘Loversity,’ that might prove to be his breakout moment: Everything is a little deeper, a little darker and jams a little longer. And he’s taking a closer look at a country in peril, written with an empath’s heart — i.e., Lewis, like many artistic minds before him, sensed something rotten in the state of Denmark even before Trump became president.”
