Back in 2007 Lewis released his first two singles Waiting For You and I'll Be The Moon and a Welsh language EP entitled Byw Mewn Breuddwyd on his own label.

Earlier that year Al had co-written and performed the song Llosgi (Burning) on the televised Song For Wales competition, winning the songwriters' category and coming second overall.

Al would go on to perform slots at the Wakestock Festival alongside Mark Ronson and at the inaugural Swn Festival in Cardiff.

Having established himself as a familiar face on the Welsh language music scene, 2008 saw two further releases, Dilyn Pob Cam and One Way Love Affair EP, gaining Al further exposure via plays on BBC 6 Music among others.

In 2009 Lewis released his first Welsh album, reaching number one in the Welsh language album charts, and a new EP called Skin & Bones in collaboration with fellow Welsh singer/songwriter Sarah Howells.

This year will see the release of Al's debut English album In the Wake.
