Lewis Del Mar is two lifelong friends, Danny Miller and Max Harwood. Inseparable creative companions filled with zeal and confidence, recently epiphanic twenty-somethings. The two have been on a continual musical journey together, a DIY mission that found them ingloriously wading against the current for years. Through a tireless pursuit including self-booked tours and uncomfortable nights on friend’s couches and floors, they have now arrived at the destination they’ve unknowingly sought for years; a 400 square foot bungalow. A humble and unimposing shanty isn’t the haven of most artistic dreams, but it is significant in the amalgamation of this duo’s years of trial-and-error self discovery.

In July of 2015, after almost two years of meticulous collaboration in a vacuum, Lewis Del Mar was catapulted onto the blogosphere with the independent release of their first single “Loud(y).” The reaction was instantaneous and overwhelmingly positive.  Indie Shuffle, Pigeons & Planes, Consequence of Sound, KCRW and CMJ all hailed the song as one of the best of the year. “Loud(y)” made iTunes “Best Songs of 2015” after only two weeks on the platform and landed top 5 on the Spotify Viral charts.  Of the band’s very first live performance, The New York Times gave a glowing preview claiming “Loud(y)” was a “clattering profane mixed-media anthem” and questioned if the band’s debut performance could possibly stand up to the veracity of the recordings. A sold out performance that left a line of people around the block provided a resounding answer.

You can download "Loud(y)" for free this week thanks to Columbia Records!
