The debut album from Kent’s emerging talent, singer-songwriter Steve Hewitt. Bigger Than Words is, as it’s title suggests, a big swathe of influences all wrapped up in 10 songs of brutal, but warm, honesty. Heartfelt acoustic songs, embellished where needed, to take you on a journey.

 

1, Mind off of you

2, Fix me

3, Pieces (feat. Orfila)

4, Move on

5, Pushing me away

6, Light gone out

7, Healing & hurt

8, Without you (feat, The Reed Bros)

9, Holding me back

10, Sad sad old world

 

Hewitt brings a unique voice to songs that take aim at hypocrites, that detail loss and heartbreak and which gives voice to truths and wisdom. All backed by luscious melodies that pull emotions subtlety from the listener; the ability to make that listener feel full force of their subconscious in the space of a few bars is just wonderful.

Perhaps the real skill in this album is the way it has been put together. There are songs on Bigger Than Words that understand the need for simplicity; Hewitt’s voice accompanied by acoustic guitar gives the songs a knowing awareness of their subject matter that gives a gravitas that is so very powerful. But then songs such as Healing and Hurt, with it’s stunning string accompaniment, invoke the beautiful arrangements of Nick Drake’s wonderful Five Leaves Left to create shade and light through out allowing this album to ebb and flow supremely.

Hewitt’s song writing and performing is honest, true and clever, he has created a little gem of an album that deserves to be widely heard and enjoyed by music fans everywhere.
