Bio

Lewis Del Mar is a duo from Rockaway Beach in Queens, NY. The project is two lifelong friends, Danny Miller and Max Harwood, who have crafted a sound as challenging as it is comforting. Lewis Del Mar's sonic hybrid blends barefaced bedroom recordings of acoustic guitars and soulful vocals over a rich soundscape of complex live and sampled percussion. A riveting tension exists as their sound calls upon inspiration ranging from latin folk to The Beastie Boys Paul's Boutique and J Dilla.

In June of 2015 the duo made their presence known with the independent release of their first single "Loud(y)." The reaction was instantaneous and overwhelmingly positive; the New York Times claimed "Loud(y)" to be a "clattering profane mixed-media anthem." Indie Shuffle, Pigeons & Planes, Consequence of Sound, KCRW and CMJ all hailed the song as one of the best of the year, while "Loud(y)" made the iTunes "Best Songs of 2015" list after only two weeks on the platform and landed top 5 on the Spotify Viral charts.

Humility and passion are brimming on the band's debut EP. There is a uniquely human element to their sound and message - undeniably relatable while it continues to keep you guessing, peering curiously around the corner to get a glimpse of what's next.
