About Jeffrey Lewis
Log onto Jeffrey Lewis' website and the first thing you're hit with is the bold, colorful comic book motif. It serves to illustrate Lewis' double-life, as both a comic book writer/artist and a musician. It's the latter, however, that has bought Lewis the most notoriety, as he has restlessly (and perhaps relentlessly) explored a multitude of sounds.
What exactly is a 'multitude'? Consider that Lewis has explored everything from folk narratives to garage rock. He's done so as part of a trio, or a duo, now and then a four-piece…and also flying solo. If you've heard of the Jeffrey Lewis group, Jeffrey Lewis & The Creeping Brains, Jeffrey Lewis & The Jitters, Jeffrey Lewis & The Jackals, Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard, or Jeffrey Lewis & The Rain…rest assured it's all the same Jeffrey Lewis.
Whether touring alone or fronting one of his various groups, Lewis has been from Los Angeles to London, taken stages in Berlin and Beijing, put on a show in Melbourne, moved up to Moscow and has never failed to entertain the masses. In short, he's come a long way from the State University of New York at Purchase (where he graduated with a degree in Literature), and from the open mic nights he played in Austin, Texas.
Lewis has recorded and released six album worldwide on the Rough Trade/Beggars label, the most recent of which was 2011's "A Turn in the Dream-Songs." He's also been publishing a comic book series called "Fuff" since 2004. His recent projects in 2013 include creating the soundtrack for the film "Radio Unnameable," as well as a side project band with Peter Stampfel and an album called "Hey Hey it's…The Jeffrey Lewis & Peter Stampfel Band."
