Damian Lewis is best known for his critically-acclaimed roles in Homeland, Billions and Band of Brothers but the actor now takes on an entirely new role as he pursues a career in music. The 52-year-old Emmy and Golden Globe-winning star released his debut album ‘Mission Creep’ in June and is now about to embark on a UK tour, which includes a date at Leeds’ Brudenell Social Club on 1 October.
It is always a risky career move when someone at the top of their respective profession switches lanes to uncharted territory. This risk isn’t lost on Lewis as he is fully aware of the pitfalls and public perception when an actor ventures into music.

Surround Yourself With People More Talented Than Yourself

Damian was on Jazz FM Saturday show with Nigel Williams today, September 23, 2023 discussing his music, debut album Mission Creep and UK tour – with Brighton, Manchester and Leeds coming up next! You can view tour dates and ticket outlets here. During the segment Nigel played four of Damian’s songs: After Midnight (at 115:30), Hole in My Roof (at 122:36), She Comes (at 165:38) and Harvest Moon (at 173:47).
Nigel asked Damian if he had picked up anything from being around other musicians like Giacomo Smith. Damian replied, “You must surround yourself with people more talented than yourself at all times in whatever you do in life, and I’m doing that. What’s interesting, you know, is there are guys in our band – Giacomo is one of them – who write and are releasing their own records. Everyone is writing their own stuff but I’m the only person that writes songs. I’m the only lyricist. I think we all…I think they bring an immeasurable amount to me and I think pleasingly – and maybe a bit surprisingly – I bring something to them, which is an opportunity to play songs, written lyrical songs. And it’s a privilege and a joy to be in there with them.”

Jazz FM Breakfast with Nigel Williams
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | September 13, 2023
Damian was on Jazz FM Breakfast with Nigel Williams today, September 13, 2023 discussing his UK tour. View tour dates and ticket outlets here. Damian shared that instead of a tour bus, they have a splitter van in which they play car Tetris fitting in all their equipment and band merch . He said their first gig of the tour in Nottingham at Rescue Rooms was an absolute joy. He went on to describe his album and music as a rootsy, storytelling, blues, and rock-n-roll feel to it, but the show is more rock-n-roll, much more rambunctious with a couple of reflective songs that are balladic moments. The audience seems to be having a good time and it’s been amazing fun. Up next, Birmingham! Then Jazz FM Breakfast played Damian’s cover of Harvest Moon.
You can catch the latest Jazz FM episode here, with Damian’s segment beginning at about 105:57:
Written By GingersnapComments Off on Damian Lewis Says Everyone Has Right To Be In The Arts
by Lauren Potts | BBC News | August 31, 2023
Billions star Damian Lewis says everyone has “the right” to get involved in the arts, regardless of background.
The actor was reflecting on his time at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, where he started his career. In conversation with BBC WM, he was asked whether there was lack of opportunity for those from working class and disadvantaged backgrounds. Lewis said part of the problem was that drama schools were expensive.
“It’s critical for art to be representative,” said the actor, also known for his roles in Homeland and Band of Brothers.
