His first release since second album Nemesis (2014), Million (Part 1) features seven tracks of dark industrial abrasion and sci-fi soundscapes. An undoubtable highlight of the album is a guest performance from Queen’s Brian May on anthemic album closer ‘We Are One’. Having previously collaborated with Roger Taylor, Jayce is among the few elite musicians who can claim to have collaborated with every current member of Queen.
 
Million is a concept album in two parts. LEWIS explains:
 
‘Right from the beginning, I wanted this to be a concept album…… to take the listener on a committed journey; a series. The subject matter mostly touches on personal experiences, discovery, loss and general life. I think many things within society today has influenced its direction, especially the rapid evolution of technology.

Jayce Lewis is an obsessive Multi-Instrumentalist hailing from Bridgend in South Wales, mostly known for his mainstream success beginning in late 2009. Laying the foundations with the release of his Asian top 10 charting single ‘Icon’ and a debut album with EMI Records, Jayce Lewis brought back to the forefront the dynamic retro electronic movement that had been missing since the middle 90s, putting his darkened twist on it and aptly naming it – Punk Industrial. The meteoric rise resulted in a rare BBC 1 music documentary titled ‘Big In India’ which documented his touring life around the globe, baring witness to the struggles of dealing with the change of life, and global recognition.

With label signings to EMI, Warner ADA and Universal Music Group under his belt, Jayce Lewis also has an impressive long list of endorsements and commercial partners including Laney Amplifiers, Tama Drums, Ibanez, Paiste, FL Studio, Synchro Arts, Steinberg, Korg, Rupert Neve Design, AMS Neveand Munro Sonic Speakers, and is a proud panel developer to Aston Microphones at Sonic Distribution.

He has toured with all the greats including Gary Numan, Killing Joke, Limp Bizkit, Combichrist, Visageas well as co-writing music with Roger Taylor and Brian May of Queen, Gary Numan, Wes Borland andMattias Ia Ekhlund.
