I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy in these intriguing times. My family and I are all well and looking forward to the day when we can get back into the world and see everybody again. In the meantime, I wanted to share a new song with you. It's one I've always loved and I've been waiting for the right time to release it. It's a duet I did with an artist named Joy Frost, who is exceptionally talented and has such a beautiful voice. It's available now on all digital services, just click this link.
Since I started focusing on my music seven years ago I have had some truly rewarding experiences. Some highlights? My music has appeared in Film & TV. I've had a tonne of songs played on the radio. 95K people have streamed my music over 250K times on Spotify alone. And probably one of the best things of all is the friendships I've made with other musicians throughout the world. All of these things sustain me and feed my creative drive.
I have big plans for 2020 and I wanted to share them with you.
1) Released today on all digital platforms is a new EP called 'Acoustically Inclined'. This is a collection of acoustic based tunes that I have recorded over the past few years and signed with libraries in Los Angeles who are actively pitching them to film & television opportunities. They're all laidback, acoustic based songs, perfect for those weekend mornings where you just wan't to relax with a cup of coffee and doing nothing. Two of them were collaborations. 'I've Got a Lot of Friends' was done with Tom Hoy, who I have worked with in the past, most noticeably on the song 'Perfect Storm'. The other collaboration is a new one with Magne Kolstad, on a song called 'Hold That Thought'. I hope you like them as much as I do.
2) For the past three years, I've been writing and recording a very personal album and I'm pleased to say that I will be releasing it later this year. It may be out in the Spring, but it may it appear in the Fall. It just depends on when I think I've got it perfect, but it will be this year. And maybe I'll play some live shows in support of it.
3) This past year I launched a band called The Allen Lewitt Project, which is a collaboration between myself and Jeff Allen. We split all the instrumental duties, though Jeff always does the drums and I always do the lead vocals. All the music we produce is intended to be used in Film & TV shows and I'm proud to say, of the 13 songs we recorded in 2019, 12 have been singed to music libraries actively pitching them. Over the course of 2019 we released three EP's and I'm pleased to announce that we will be releasing a full length album in 2020 so stay tuned.
I would like to thank you all for your continued support and I hope the new year treats you well.
All the best,
Does all this snow we've been getting in the north east put you in the Christmas mood? If so, you're in luck! Out today on all digital platforms is a brand new Christmas EP by my band The Allen Lewitt Project(which is really just me and Jeff Allen sharing all the instrumental duties). It's our third EP, so it has cleverly been called Volume 3. It contains one original song called 'A Very, Merry Christmas' which is as catchy as one can make a song. It also contains a version of 'Jingle Bells' as if done by Jerry Lee Lewis. And it finishes off with me doing my best impersonation of Frank Sinatra singing 'Jolly Old St. Nicholas'. These three songs are currently signed to a great music library out in LA who is currently pitching them to Film & TV opportunities, so if we've been good boys this year, maybe Santa will get them on a TV show this holiday season!

Out today is my brand new single called "When It Rains". This is a collaboration between myself and Bamtone (if you've seen me live, he's played with me as my drummer and back up vocalist). Check it out on your favourite streaming platform - here's a quick link to all of them: linktr.ee/johnlewitt
I hope you're all having a great summer - here's a bit of new music to make it even better.

FYI, The Allen Lewitt Project is a collaboration between Jeff Allen and myself. All of our songs are actively being pitched to Film & TV opportunities, so keep your ears open for them!
Out today is the debut EP from The Allen Lewitt Project, 'Volume 1'. It is the first of three themed EP's planned for release in 2019. The Allen Lewitt Project is collaboration between myself and Jeff Allen (of the band Piewackit Quku). It was formed as a vehicle to release the songs that we have been writing and recording for Film & Television. Our most successful placement has been a song called 'Kiss You Girl' that has so far been used 9 times on the Young & The Restless (I released it under my name back in the fall).
and everywhere else!
We had a blast playing the Horseshoe on Monday night. For those of you who couldn't make it, here's a clip of our closing number, Perfect Storm.
You can see more clips from the show at the following link: Live At The Horseshoe
To coincide with the show at the Horseshoe Tavern next week, I thought it would be a good time to share a couple of new songs. I recorded them for the album 'All Good Things', but I couldn't figure out where to put them in the running order. I hope you enjoy them. Listen here.
