Stratford TV interview with Tony Lewis 353 ‘Soldier On’
The Big Secret Sound Ft. Andrew James SOLDIER ON
The Big Secret Sound Ft. Andrew James SOLDIER ON Released on February 9th 2014, dedicated to Private Conrad Lewis and his fallen comrades.
The Big Secret Sound Ft Andrew James will release their 2nd single Soldier On, on February 9th 2014, in memory of one of Warwickshire’s bravest and most recognised soldiers, Private Conrad Lewis. Pro- ceeds from the sales of Soldier On will go to 353… The single will be released on iTunes, Amazon and other Download Sites on Feb 9th, the 3rd anniversary of Conrad’s premature death. 353.. is a charitable Trust set up by the Lewis family – the family of Conrad Lewis, with the aim of helping members of the military community.
Soldier on … the song … is the embodiment of moving forward, after loss, getting busy living, celebrating lives lived to the full … while it is inspired by the life and loss of Private Conrad Lewis of the Parachute regiment, who was killed in Afghanistan on Feb 9th 2011, Mentioned In Dispatches for his bravery and yet the 353rd Soldier to die in the conflict, it remembers everyone before 353 and everyone after it and those suffering today. It is written by Chris Onslow, who as the father of one of the great circle of close friends, has been inspired to brilliantly put into words what this spirit means to us all, lyrics that wrap a strong and comforting arm around anyone who has suffered loss. It is composed and performed by the ‘Big Secret Sound, featuring Andrew James’ who have magically captured the inspiring, anthemic feeling that … ‘I’m still here with you’
…. and It’s on behalf of all of us touched by loss, and especially those lost in any military conflict from World Wars to the current conflict in Afghanistan.”
Recorded in Warwickshire at Rhythm Studios, The Big Secret Sound Ft Andrew James is hoping to engage all those people that are in conflict, have been in conflict and the general public both here and abroad who continue to support our boys and girls for their dedication to protecting our Nation. Tony Lewis said “ I am overwhelmed and humbled by the support shown to us at 353… by The Big Secret Sound, I understand that all we need is 7500 downloads and Soldier On would make the Top 40, that would raise much needed funds for the charity and help to recognise all our brave troops whether in the Army, Navy, Air Force or any of our serving Forces around the world. On behalf of 353 trust, my family and all the soldiers around the world I would like to thank Andrew James and Chris Onslow for giving their creativity, time and commitment to produce such a breathtaking song. I know Conrad would download it if he could.”

3rd Anniversary 353 Ball gathering momentum
It’s now just over 5 weeks until the 353 Ball on Saturday 8th February 2014. This year looks like eclipsing all others with 300 guests already confirmed and some ‘one night only’ activities planned on the night.
The event is being held at The Guy Nelson Hall, Warwick School, Myton Road, Warwick. It starts at 7pm for 730pm with a champagne reception. Dress code is black tie for men, ball gowns or cocktail dresses for ladies.
The night will see a live performance and subsequent release of the single ‘Soldier on’ from ‘The Big Secret Sound featuring Andrew James’. With Conrad Lewis as the catalyst for the anthemic lyrics and face of the campaign, proceeds are going to the 353 trust.
A link to a teaser ‘making of’ video, we hope we can get the single to chart in the week 9th to 15th Feb to truly honour all those lost in conflict, I hope you agree that it deserves to.
The night will be closed by a very special guest band, featuring a British rock and pop legend, who wants to support 353 and play for you and your guests. Bring a bit of denim with you if you wish … and get busy living.
All in all it should be a very special night and one that is fully deserved given your outstanding support.
