Since 2018 Andrew Eaton Lewis has been living on a former RAF radar station in the Outer Hebrides, along with his family, chickens, a small flock of rare breed sheep, and a sheepdog. Previously he lived in Edinburgh, where, as Seafieldroad and a member of the band Swimmer One, his songs found their way to daytime Radio One, a Hollywood movie, and numerous festivals, theatre shows and short films. He was one of the core creative team behind the award- winning multi-media project Whatever Gets You Through The Night, performing with Emma Pollock, Ricky Ross, RM Hubbert and Rachel Sermanni, among others (a project he recently revived as part of the first Hebridean Dark Skies Festival on Lewis). His own music has won widespread acclaim from critics, who have variously compared it to John Cale, Belle and Sebastian, the Pet Shop Boys and the Blue Nile. All this activity sprang from a teenage obsession with music that resulted in Andrew’s first 38 ‘albums’ – almost 40 hours of unreleased home recordings made between the ages of 15 and 21.
His 2022 album, Tourism, is available everywhere via Wee Studio Records.
