Oozing soul and emotion from the very start, Rhys Lewis‘ track is a work of hard-hitting perfection.¬†Stripped back, Lewis’ percussive guitar style lays into you at the very start of ‘Reason to Hate You’, and doesn’t lay off. His voice captures all the angst and worries of heartbreak with lyrics which cut to the core. The song starts and stays simple, but it must have been difficult to compose and perform. However, that difficulty has paid off with a track which speaks volumes and remains echoing in your head long after the final chord has died away.
