Warren, Pennsylvania’s own Boyd Lewis is a soulful singer/songwriter with a knack for making the ordinary sound extraordinary. The combination of beautiful guitar strumming and his deeply personal lyrics transport you to a place in your memory where you fondly recall a lost love. Lewis mines a significant amount from his own experiences to craft poetry against melody that is reminiscent of Nick Drake. “I always try to keep an open mind to different styles and types of music. I try to never put my own musical tastes on a pedestal, as I know full well that there is always something and someone better. It works out pretty well this way also, because I always find myself learning more every day.” It’s the kind of songwriting that paints vivid pictures of simple iconic imagery and when sung against the lovely guitar foundation, a certain magic is created. Currently, Hunter Alan is writing songs during a hiatus from recording but will head back to the studio to finish up a record called “The Brighter Side of Things” which will be due out later this year.

- - - - - - - Young, Inspiring, Exciting - It takes hard work and a love for music to create a masterpiece. Hunter Alan has done nothing less in creating his music. The talented musician has come a long way since learning the guitar at his home in a small town in rural Pennsylvania. After graduating high school and performing in garage bands, Hunter Alan relocated to Indiana to attend school and pursue his love of music. Aside from his college work and playing soccer for his college, Hunter Alan has been able to create songs full of timeless lyrics that can be related to by anyone. A great song is one that you can listen to over and over again without personally playing it out and abandoning it until you stumble across it again in your music library. Hunter Alan's latest song entitled Swordfighting and Fighting is one of those great songs. With a subtle acoustic guitar and electronic sound to the song, one can hear the masterful mind that went into creating such a modern sound. With such influences such as Owen, The Shins, Nickel Creek, The Weakerthans, and The Appleseed Cast, it is no wonder his music is as genuine and warm as it is. He records at a friend’s house near his own and acknowledges the long hours and hard work that both have put into making his music what it is today. This song is one for the ages and should never be overlooked by any music lover.
