Damian Lewis heads to Rescue Rooms, Nottingham, after release of Mission Creep
Although best known for his acting, Damian Lewis has now turned his attention to music and is heading out on the road.
Demand for tickets for the tour have proved so popular the actor-turned singer has had to add extra dates.
The Billions star has released the album Mission Creep, described as a rootsy, rock and jazz-tinged collection.
All the tracks on it have been written by Damian himself during the covid lockdowns.
Fans can hear it when he performs at Rescue Rooms, Nottingham, on Saturday.
Damian’s musical journey started after leaving school when he hit the road with his guitar and went busking through Europe.
His acting career then took precedent but music always remained in the background and came back to the fore during the covid lockdown when, with time to spare, he started playing and writing songs.
That developed into Mission Creep and gigs, such as the one at Nottingham this weekend.
He said: “Lewis said, “I’ve been blown away by the critical response to Mission Creep, and I hope everybody likes it as much as the critics seem to.
“All written by me and produced by my friend Giacomo Smith, with one or two favourite tracks thrown in as covers, you might think it’s a little weird that Major Winters is singing you a love song, or that Bobby Axelrod is getting all tender with some Neil Young, or that Nicholas Brody is wailing some up tempo rock ‘n’ roll at you, but come along, see for yourself.
“Because actually, none of those guys are up there, it’s just me with my incred-ible band of jazz ‘n’ rock musicians, and we’re in town to give you a great night.”
