Pop culture is full of great misfits whose quirky creativity often goes unrewarded.

Jona Lewie is one of the people except he pulled of a couple of massive hit singles – “You’ll Always Find Me in the Kitchen at Parties” and “Stop the Cavalry” and was also the longest serving artists on Stuff records- label set up to release the so called stuffs- artists that were considered untouchable by the rest of the idiotic music industry.

Still out there and still creating, Jona is working on his new album, ‘my 3rd ‘proper’ album in my studio in London. Hope it is ready this year and will be touring it UK and abroad.’
