Riverside is the second album by Chris Lewington as a solo artist.
Drawing inspiration from artists such as James Taylor, George Harrison, Scott Walker and Paul Simon to name but a few, Chris has produced a classic sounding album but with a contemporary twist. Themes of songs are varied. There's relationship songs – love or just friendship . "Firelights" is about Lizzie Siddal and the Pre Raphaelites. "Armistice day" is a Rupert Brooks poem set to music. "Taj Mahal" about Shah Jahan. "After the Sun" maybe is/isn't a post covid song. The first half of the album is quite English. The second half takes on a bit more Americana or country tinge in places. The last track "Spread Your wings" is loosely about Gene Clark the Byrd who didn't like flying.
