The UK Art Pop extraordinaire Mr Bewlay has established himself as the paramount voice for the unorthodox. Currently based in Cardiff, Bewlay’s upbringing was flamboyant with an early induction onto the stage. With amateur dramatic performances of classics like West Side Story, A View From A Bridge and A Streetcar Named Desire Bewlay learnt the subtle intricacies of stage performance, a skill he brings with him to this day. Beginning his musical career under the mentorship of the respected Forte Project in Wales, In addition he has played sold out headliner shows in prestigious venues such as Porters, Queens Hall and Ill Repute. As a champion for LGBTQ+ activism he has also given talks and performed at Queer festivals and shows with the On Your Face Collective. Recently Bewlay has signed with Tiwn Media and they are set to release the next wave of his music with their second Ep : Black Reason
With a breadth of sound ranging from retro-spiced pop, to quiet reflective solo pieces, Bewlay’s unpredictability is also found in his music. With influences coming from artists such as David Bowie, St Vincent and Parquet Courts, Bewlay remains in a lane of his own with bombastic vocals, extravagant style and lyrics of the utmost originality.
When speaking about the new track Mr Bewlay said, “I have garnered my fair share of controversies. From riling crowds into mayhem, to releasing songs that on the outset contain dubious lyrics. All of this was in the name of artistic expression. Tormentor was a response to these actions, an over-the-top expression of a character that was meant to push the boundaries. A rock star persona that was aware of his morally grey actions and chose to embrace them. It fits in with the themes of the EP, whereas we live in a world where liars don’t hide their intentions any more and where the power hungry wear their goals on their sleeves. This isn’t a criticism of anyone’s actions, more a celebration of the absurdity of a world gone mad!. “
‘Bewlay, The Tormentor’ was produced and mixed by Andrew Saunders and mastered by Graeme Lynch. Vocals and Synths by MR BEWLAY, Percussion by Andrew Saunders, Bass by Phillip Court and guitar by Tom Emlyn.
The Black Reason EP follows the previous EP ‘Electric Reason’ which featured singles such as ‘Her Name Is Juniper’ and ‘Wobbegong’.
