Donna Lewis grew up in a musical family in Cardiff, Wales, taking up piano at age 6 and writing her first songs at 14.
Classically trained in piano and flute at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, she honed her unique style in piano bars across Europe, developing a loyal fan base and retreating to her home studio to write songs and record demos.
A celebrated chanteuse and songwriter with a signature breathy voice, Lewis soared to fame in 1996 with the dance-pop classic "I Love You Always Forever." People around the globe still have boundless love for the smash-hit song, but the multi-dimensional Welsh native is an artist who is as comfortable with catchy pop tunes as she is with jazz, acoustic, electronica, and beyond.
In recent work, Lewis collaborated with composer-producer David Baron on the emotionally charged single "Bad Bad Love." Following on that success, the duo released a unique take of Kate Bush’s hit "Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)," pairing stark piano vocals with strings and synth. Lewis also recently joined forces with Delia Derbyshire Appreciation Society, bringing powerful expression to their remix of “She Brought the Sun.” In her newest EP, QueenTown (2020), Lewis collaborates with singer-songwriter Pamela Sue Mann and Baron as producer for a bold, sensualist exploration of the feminine.
"Love Explodes" is the breathy and evocative first single on the much-anticipated record.
