A Moment with Dean Lewis
We spent A Moment with Dean Lewis, Australian singer-songwriter who has amassed billions of streams with his hits such as “Waves”, “Half a Man”, and “How Do I Say Goodbye”, recently sat down with Hidden Beats to spend a moment with him and discuss his song writing process, performing his own songs, and more!
Behind The Process
Dean takes us behind his own song writing process, and how his various influences affect his style. When it comes to his soaring, emotionally charged epics such as “How Do I Say Goodbye”, Dean speaks of how he builds the scene for the listener with his descriptive lyrics: “There was a song that I heard by Bruce Springsteen –“Dancing in the Dark”- and he used very specific things. So I really like drawing scenes, and I do that in “Be Alright”, right from the start it’s “I look up from the ground to see your sad and teary eyes” and then I’m describing the scene, and I’m using dialogue back and forth… I just really enjoy it! Then in “How Do I Say Goodbye” I guess I do the same.
