It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing our lead guitarist Lewis Hickin is leaving Distant Sun and will be moving on to new things. Lewis has been in the band along with Nick and Rafe for 17 years and during this time has played hundreds of gigs, performed in various festivals, recorded multiple EPs/Albums and featured in 4 music videos. Lewis's unique style of driven-melodic guitar playing formed an integral part to the sound of Distant Suns first 2 albums and his talents as a lead guitarist will be greatly missed.
Lewis will be performing his last two gigs with Distant Sun at the end of this month at Broadfarm in Fleggburgh on Sat 27th May and finally at The Jolly Sailors in Pakefield on Sun 28th May. We hope as many of you as possible can attend these gigs to give Lewis a tremendous send off.
As Distant Sun and as individuals we all wish Lewis the very best in the future and would like to thank him for all the years of hard work, fun, creativity and great chimes!
