Rob Lewis’ Momentum

Redefining the cello

Rob Lewis is much more than simply the go-to man whenever a notable band fancies filling out their sound with some atmospheric or dramatic cello. Yes, he’s done this for the likes of Noel Gallagher and Massive Attack (as well as often performing with the Heritage Orchestra), but Rob is much more than simply a supporting artist. Accordingly, here his cello takes centre stage; not an enhancement to the main show, but the main show itself. One side of his work is composing and performing TV scores (his most recent being the music accompanying the Channel 4 series Inside The White House), but the creations he releases under his own name are arguably his most alluring work – slowly unfurling soundscapes of deep layers and tender beauty.
