Introducing Tyler Lewis, a 22-year-old rising star from London, who is set to make waves in the industry. With roots extending across Sri Lankan, Dutch, Portuguese, and South African heritage, Tyler effortlessly enchants audiences with her soulful voice and magnetic stage presence, and earning recognition from artists like Becky Hill, Tyla, Yebba, Jessie J, Flo, Mahalia and Kamille.

Tyler’s musical journey began at the tender age of 9 when she grabbed first place in a school talent contest with a spellbinding rendition of Mariah Carey’s ‘Hero.’ Raised on a diet of everything from Luther Vandross to Duran Duran, Brian McKnight to Nik Kershaw to Whitney Houston, Tyler sought out to capture the essence of soul and R&B titans through a uniquely contemporary lens, explaining, “I love how the music made me feel more than anything.” Fast forward to the age of 22, Tyler’s been able to experience the feeling of doing the same for others in a solo live setting, supporting Kiana Ledé on tour at KOKO last year, as well as performing as part of Mahalia Presents nights. 

Over the past two years, Tyler Lewis has immersed herself in the world of writing and recording music. In a close collaboration with Grammy Award-winning artist and producer MNEK, who plays a pivotal role in her journey, she has also worked alongside emerging writers, producers, and artists. Through enticing vocal snippets shared on social media, she has cultivated a dedicated following, all the while discovering and excavating her own unique voice and songwriting pen.

As Tyler Lewis continues to carve her musical path, this rising star’s story unfolds with authenticity, passion, and an unwavering commitment to her craft. “It very much does show exactly who I am as a person and what I love,” she says. “I just find it exciting knowing that there’s so much to come.”   



Grammy award winning, BRIT and Ivor Novello-nominated artist/producer/writer MNEK, has clocked up an astonishing fifteen years in the music business. With over 4 BILLION streams on MNEK written, featured and produced tracks, he has grown to become a true powerhouse within the British pop world. He has worked alongside some of the biggest names in the industry, collaborating with the likes of Zara Larsson, Stormzy, Gorgon City, Years & Years and Craig David. He’s written with international stars such as Beyoncé, Little Mix, Dua Lipa, Christina Aguilera, BTS, Mabel, Anne Marie, Madonna, Kelly Rowland, Selena Gomez and Clean Bandit. His back catalogue includes a number of worldwide hits including ‘Ready For Your Love’, ‘Never Forget You’, and ‘Blinded By Your Grace’. His hit with Joel Corry, ‘Head & Heart’, became a global success, topping the charts in several countries and taking the reign as the longest standing UK #1 single in 2020. Success continued throughout 2022, both on and off stage with “Where Did You Go?”, his collaboration with Jax Jones, going platinum and spending an incredible 32 weeks on the charts, plus the launch of Island UK & Republic US’s hotly-tipped female R&B trio FLO, and their debut EP “The Lead”, which he executively produced. 

Culturally, MNEK is considered a musical icon amongst the LGBTQIA+ community and has previously performed at New York World Pride 2019, UK Black Pride and featured on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK as both a coach and guest judge. After setting up a writing camp dedicated to supporting LGBTQIA+ singer/songwriters in 2019, MNEK has continued efforts to strive for more inclusivity within the industry via the launch of Summer 2023’s PROUD SOUND, an all-encompassing hub of queer talent, with both established and emerging artists, producers and songwriters. Engineered in partnership with Warner Chappell and powered by Spotify, it was an incredible meeting of minds and has already nurtured new and exciting collaborations both here and abroad. MNEK’s dedication to illuminating more inclusivity has also seen him become a contributor to the Guardian UK diversity panel as well as hosting his own YouTube panel ‘MNEKs Inter-Section’ in conversation with 5 Black Queer artists/content creators.
