Americana at its brilliant best. Celebrated Swansea (Wales) song-writing duo Andy Morse and Gareth Lewis, AKA Fever Sparks, perform three of their original compositions. They are ‘This Is Love’ (shortlisted in the Unsigned Only Music Competition 2016), ‘Walkaway’ (finalist in the International Songwriting Competition 2011) and ‘Loaded’.

Fever Sparks are a British songwriting duo combining the collective talents of Swansea-born songwriters Andy Morse and Gareth Lewis.

Between them, they have worked with Jamie Lawson, The Struts, Motorhead, Steve Balsamo, Evan Dando, Frank Turner and Zane Lowe. Separately, many of their songs have been played regularly on national radio, registered with online music licensing companies, and used in digital videos.

Both have been finalists in the International Songwriting Competition based in Nashville (18,000 entries - Jeff Beck, Tom Waits and Tori Amos on the judging panel plus senior US industry figures). Andy made the final in 2011 with his Americana anthem 'Walkaway', and Gareth in 2014 with his T-Bone Burnett-influenced song 'Don't let your love lay down’.

As well as writing and performing their own material, Fever Sparks are also co-writing with a number of top songwriters and producers around the UK.
