Eliot Lewis bio:
Eliot Lewis is a singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist as well as being a key member of the the Daryl Hall & John Oates band. Eliot is also one of the original featured musicians on MTV?s "Live From Daryl's House?. His contributions stand out on some of the best moments from the show including performances with Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Joe Walsh, Todd Rundgren,Train, Grace Potter, Ben Folds, Booker T, Jewel, Rob Thomas, Keb Mo, Jason Mraz, Darius Rucker, Gavin DeGraw and many, many others. Earlier in his career Eliot spent several years as a key member of the The Average White Band. Eliot toured, wrote and also produced several songs for the Scottish soul band.
"Eliot is a musician who can do it all, great singer, songwriter and guitarist. He rocks and he's got soul. No one does it quite like him" - Daryl Hall
Having mastered four instruments over the course of his career; guitar, keyboard, bass and drums, Eliot blazed his own trail as a solo artist sharing his distinctive brand of rock & soul through solo releases and hundreds of solo tour dates all over the world. Eliot?s songs come from the inside out. ?I think the main inspiration for any of my records is to convey these little slices of life, most of my songs are written about my own experiences and situations?.
There are many who shaped Eliot?s music and writing. ?As a guitar player, definitely Jeff Beck who I've been listening to all my life, as well as Billy Gibbons who I had the great fortune of working with recently, and Peter Frampton who I actually jammed with when I was 14 yrs old. I had the amazing experience of meeting and seeing many influential artists when I was a kid mainly at Madison Square Garden in New York City. A place I just played with Hall & Oates which was a lifetime dream. One of the first writers to in- spire me to write songs was Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, another favorite band of mine that I just worked with on Live From Daryl's House.?
In 2016 Eliot signed an exclusive recording partnership with The SoNo Recording Group. His first release, entitled Adventure, is a collection of eleven new recordings; ten originals written, performed, and produced by Eliot and one cover of the Bad Com- pany classic, ?Ready For Love?. ?My goal with this record is to try to present a record that comes from the place that first inspired me, the kind of classic stripped down rock & soul before all the slick production with auto tuning became so common place?
Adventure will be released on CD, digital download, and streaming on Friday October 28th world-wide vis SRG Records / The ILS Group / Universal Music Group.
