Lewis Mokler (born 20 May 1993) is an English R&B/Pop singer and songwriter.
Lewis began singing at an early age, performing covers in karaoke pubs and starring in school musicals before busking around his hometown and in Cambridge. Soon after Lewis was given an acoustic guitar, teaching himself to play and performing at various open mic nights around Suffolk. In April 2011 Lewis performed at The Doodle Bar in Bury St Edmunds where he was spotted by local manager & promoter Joe Weaver, and the two began working with each other.
Lewis released three free demo EP's over the course of 2011 before entering local battle of the bands competition, BurySOUND. After being the first solo artist to win the competition since it began in 1998, Lewis began to get regular gig slots around East Anglia before being asked to support more established artists such as Lester Clayton, Ryan Keen, Antonio Lulic, & Jake Morley.
Lewis released his debut album Fingertips on 25 June 2012 which on its first day reached number 6 in the iTunes singer-songwriter chart, leading to praise from fellow musicians Ed Sheeran & Lewis Watson. In October 2012 Lewis Mokler began his first UK tour alongside local singer-songwriter Adam Moss, releasing a 4-track collaboration EP together to coincide with the tour.
After performing 177 gigs in 2012, Lewis entered the studio to record the Skybound EP which was released on 8 April 2013, reaching number 4 in the UK iTunes singer-songwriter chart & number 59 in the US iTunes singer-songwriter charts. The first single Word By Word was co-written with Welsh musician Amy Wadge, famous for her Songs I Wrote With Amy EP collaboration alongside Ed Sheeran.
Lewis has performed at a number of UK summer music festivals over the years, including Summer Jam Music Festival in Torquay alongside Lethal Bizzle & Boy Better Know, as well as headlining the Access To Music stage at Latitude Festival in Suffolk. He in total performed 177 gigs in 2012.
