For Dean, it all really started when he was sitting with his younger brother years ago and his dad put on a DVD called Oasis Manchester Live 2005. “I remember watching Liam Gallagher walk out with this hat and red jacket and watching him with Noel, they were just the coolest guys ever. I spent the next five years watching every Oasis video – Noel Gallagher basically taught me how to write songs.” Dean’s Oasis obsession also stirred some older musical memories in him, as his newfound lust for rhythm and melody took him back to the sounds of his childhood. “Some of my earliest memories are my dad showing my brothers and I his guitars and telling us when we’re old enough he’ll give them to us,” Lewis recalls. “My dad is a massive music fan. He had a big CD collection and was always playing The Beatles, Oasis or Van Morrison.” As he began to feel his way into creating and crafting his own music, Dean continued to be inspired by mostly UK artists – Richard Ashcroft, The Kooks and more recently, Catfish and The Bottlemen. “I’m just obsessed with his songwriting,” Dean states. “It’s so simple and melodic. He doesn’t over think it, and that inspires me. But more recently it’s certain songs that I get obsessed with. I consume music obsessively but it’s kinda focused. I’ll be so inspired by a song, then listen to it on repeat and only want to listen to that one song!”
