Johnny Lewis played Mercury Lounge to celebrate the release of his self-titled debut album. His early show set started off with NYC’s Wyatt. Fronted by singer/songwriter Maddy Wyatt, the five piece band played old songs as well as some funky grooves off their soon to be released album.
Johnny Lewis took to the stage, with his Joe Strummer haircut, high-slung guitar and the vocals and songwriting of Elvis Costello. Between songs of his high energy set he kept everyone entertained with his quick-witted banter. He’s heading out on the road, but he’ll be back in NYC at the end of October. If you get the chance I would check him out. You won’t be disappointed.
