Popular Australian singer and songwriter Dean Lewis was born in 1987 in Sidney. His father played the guitar and was a big fan of Beatles, Oasis, and Van Morrison. He had a large collection of tapes and Dean grew up listening to their music. By the time the boy turned ten, he already knew how to play the guitar.
In 2005, Dean’s father showed his two sons a recording of Oasis’ concert in Manchester. Gallagher’s manner of playing impressed the young man tremendously. He was shocked that by using simple chords, Noel Gallagher managed to create such amazing music. This pushed Dean to rediscover his music hobby. In the next five years, he spent his free time studying the DVD of that concert, trying to figure out how Noel managed to come up with such masterpieces.
At the same time, Lewis started writing his own songs. He was influenced by the British musician and songwriter, an ex-leader of The Verve, Richard Ashcroft, and an indie rock group from Brighton, The Kooks. With time, Dean got a hang of writing songs and wanted to make it his profession.
