Since its formation in 2017, Pampanga’s homegrown band Mt. Lewis has been conquering greater heights with their creativity and exceptional talents. And just this October 12, the five-piece act signed a deal with Offshore Music—a label founded and led by OPM icon Ely Buendia.
Mt. Lewis is composed of Lewis Tiongco on lead guitars and vocals, Gael Santos on drums, Josef Alfonso on rhythm guitars and backing vocals, Brian Macapagal on bass and backing vocals, and Heinrich Bernabe on keyboards/synths and programming. They are influenced by artists like PREP, John Mayer, Phoenix, and The 1975.
The group first made a buzz on the local music scene with their songs “Cold Misty Road”, “Bitin”, and “Marry Go Round”. Among the festivals and events that they have already graced were the Tigtigan Terakan King Dalan in Angeles City, University Days in Holy Angel University, Fete de la Musique – Pampanga Stage, and the Odisee Music Festival in Clark.
Their latest single, Arsonista, released last April, has already been streamed 21,889 times as of this writing. Mt. Lewis is set to release their next single under Offshore Music, and they promise their fans that they’re in for a good trip.
