Damian Lewis on This Morning

Life’s Too Short To Not Do What You Love

by This Morning | YouTube | March 19, 2024

Damian was a guest on This Morning, Tuesday, March 19, 2024 with hosts Ben Shephard and Cat Deeley. He discussed music, his debut album Mission Creep, his UK Tour Part 2 and playing upcoming sold-out shows. He may have also smooched a pooch while on set, and answered some corridor questions. Renowned for hit series like Homeland and Billions, once embarked on a journey across Europe with nothing but a tent, a guitar and a dream of becoming the next Elvis. Now, after decades of silver screen success and a tough couple of years that reminded him ‘life’s too short’, he’s revisiting his childhood rockstar dreams. He joins us in-studio to tell us about putting down the scripts and picking up the microphone stand as he continues his UK tour.

A Rocking Good Night With Damian Lewis

Damian Cracks At It

by Jacquee Storozynski-Toll | Southend Theatre Scene | March 12, 2024

Who knew that Damian Lewis could sing? The actor best known for his work on Wolf Hall and Homeland amongst others can really rock it with the best of them. He also plays a mean acoustic guitar. Apparently, before he was famous he busked around Europe with a rucksack and a tent, so has had plenty of experience. This time he is on the second part of a tour to advertise his debut album Mission Creep.

However, before he arrived Amelie, a young singer songwriter, treated us to a set. She demonstrated her talents singing, playing the guitar and keyboards. One song The Night We Called it a Day was co-written with Guy Chambers who co-wrote many Robbie Williams songs. She announced that she would be having an EP album out later in the year.

Good as she was, it was Damian that the audience had come to see. He zoomed on to the stage, looking very different to his slick screen image, dancing around the stage in jeans and a waistcoat, clutching his guitar and being every inch a rocker. He then launched into a soulful rendition of the first song on the album Down on the Bowery, following this with a bluesy number Soho Tango.

Backed by a four-piece band and accompanied by Amelie, he went through most of the songs on the album. They covered various genres. Some were Rockabilly, some jazzy and bluesy and we were even treated to a Chuck Berry duck walk. As one song ended, another started his voice adapting to smooth ballads, growly rocks, and high-pitched blues, to cover every style that his skills as an actor could bring to the song. Wanna Grow Old In Paris, had a haunting quality, My Little One with the bluesy harmonica, was in the style of Dr. Feelgood, then there was the beautiful She Comes. This was apparently written as a tribute to his late wife Helen McCrory, but he just called it a song about a ghost.

Damian Lewis Makes a Welcome Return to Sussex

“An absolute belting set of variety, strong songwriting and class musicianship, and a sea of grinning faces”

DAMIAN LEWIS – TRADING BOUNDARIES, SHEFFIELD GREEN 8.3.24

With Brighton & Hove News having reviewed Damian Lewis in Hove, back in November 2023 (Review HERE) on the first leg of his tour to support the release of his first album, ‘Mission Creep’, it was interesting to see how he fared back in the live environment a few months further down the line and at the beginning of the second leg of his tour. Would it be more of the same or would we get any variation in the songs?

The answer to that was a clear…Yes, there would be variety, and in many ways this was almost a different show entirely.

However, before we get into the set changes it is clear that this is a second stage of the ‘Mission Creep’ album tour and unsurprisingly, with this album being the only one currently available for the fans to listen to, it still held sway with ten of the thirteen album tracks being played tonight.

Paddleboarding Mishap and Music

by Louisa Baldwin | Eastern Daily Press | March 9, 2024

Meanwhile, his love of music remained and after leaving school he went busking with his guitar across continental Europe.

When lockdown hit, it gave him the time to throw himself into playing and writing songs again.

Review: Damian Lewis and Amelie at Trading Boundaries

“There is definitely an open door to go full time as a music star.”

by Steve Best | Music Republic Magazine | March 8, 2024

Psssst….Wanna know a ‘secret?’ There’s a big movie and TV star plotted up in a rural gaff in East Sussex, and circa 190 folk are invited for dinner and drinks.

It’s not a film set or a private showbiz bash – but this venue is lovely enough to be used for one – and as live music venues go, it’s on the more unusual side and perfect for an intimate first date of a UK tour. As “up close and personal” as you can get to…

Screen star and musician Damian Lewis, who is back on the road with his band after Part 1 of their “Mission Creep” tour late last year – and they delivered a very classy set on Friday to a sold out Trading Boundaries venue as first stop on their eight-date trek.
