Social media has ripped down the barriers between artist and audience.
Yet it has also allowed artists a new medium to express themselves. Lacking a way to get his music heard, Lewis Watson began uploading live performances to YouTube.
Quickly gaining followers, the songwriter has never stopped. Building a hugely dedicated audience, new EP 'Four More Songs' became his most successful release to date.
Hitting Bestival, Lewis Watson was one of the weekend's most in-demand newcomers. Despite this, the rising artist agreed to shoot a quick live session for Off Guard Gigs, at the behest of Clash and Right Guard.
Performing 'Even If...' his youthful voice is matched to an assured approach, finger picking his way through a tale of heartbreak.
Watch it now.
