Debut Solo Album

by Elizabeth Aubrey | Implurnt | July 8, 2022

Actor Damian Lewis has unveiled details of two new live dates and news of his debut solo album. The Homeland actor will play an intimate warm-up date at London’s Omeara on August 4, 2022 before making an appearance at Wilderness Festival in Oxford on August 7 from 8:35 p.m. until 9:15 p.m. He also announced that he will be releasing a debut album in 2023. Ahead of his live dates, Lewis said:

“I’m looking forward to getting out there and playing the songs I’ve written and been recording for my debut album. Be good to be back on stage, this time with a guitar in my hand.”

While predominately known for his acting work, Lewis has played classical guitar since he was 13. He busked through London in his early twenties and continued to make music as a hobby alongside his acting work in films such as Billions.

A statement added: “Meeting with various London-based musicians, including Giocomo Smith, Lewis wrote songs and found himself in the recording studio cutting the tracks that will be released on his as-yet-untitled debut album in the New Year.”

'She's still with us': Damian Lewis paid tribute to his late wife Helen McCrory on Good Morning Britain on ThursdayActor Damian Lewis paid a moving tribute to his late wife Helen McCrory on Good Morning Britain on Thursday saying, “She’s with us.”

The star, who’s taking part in Sunday’s Soccer Aid, revealed how Helen was always his biggest supporter – and GMB hosts Kate Garraway and Ben Shepherd shared their memories of the Peaky Blinders actor who passed away from cancer in April 2021 aged 52. Ben began by saying:

“The first time I met you and your lovely wife Helen away from work was at Soccer Aid many years ago in Manchester and you were there with the family and the kids. She was always such a vociferous supporter of you and everything you did. Kate and I were very honoured to be at her memorial service just a few weeks ago. I’d imagine you’ve been very moved by the outpouring of love and support that has been shown towards her since she sadly passed away.”

Damian replied, “Well, She was a fabulous human being and people from all walks of life have been in touch to say what an impact she had on their lives.”
