LISTEN: Roman Lewis - 'Just A Woman'

When I found this new Roman Lewis track in my inbox I really liked what I was hearing, though the name was entirely new to me. Fast forward a week to sitting down to write this post and I've noticed his name popping up in various places... he's been played in the Communion show in Radio X this weekend as their Making Waves artist, supported the total heroes Blaenavon on their Omeara show earlier this week and has promo shots taken by the legend Hollie Fernando (genuinely one of the best photographers out there and a lovely person to boot!) Pretty impressive, I think... then I discover he's just 17 years old (and naturally, feel old myself at the ripe old age of 22.)

Following the release of a number of well-received singles in 2018, Roman is releasing debut EP Heartbreak (for now) today, a 7-track compilation confidently placing him as a new songwriter to watch out for. Latest single Just A Woman is the most reserved of the tracks, with his voice set against the quiet sounds of an acoustic guitar. Utterly composed throughout, it's a romantic ode to a woman that shows us love is complex, with the protagonist declaring "it's been a year, but I'd spend a million more with you my dear" and receiving the response "you're not thinking clear, you know how feelings disappear."
