MUSICIAN Born:

Eric Lewis

Every once in a while, an artist comes along who changes everything.

Producing something completely new and meaningful, this person fills a void within the fabric of our culture--a hole we didn’t even know was there. Past generations have laid claim to this type of iconoclast--Liszt, Warhol, and Coltrane are among the artistic beacons of years gone by. Today, another joins their number--an innovator, musical revolutionary and unmatched performer: ELEW, aka Eric Robert Lewis. Fusing traditional jazz with elements of modern rock and pop, ELEW’s masterful originals and blistering re-interpretations have ignited the interest of the country’s tastemakers and those in the cultural know. But more than this, he possesses that ineffable spark that we only associate with true genius. Everything that he creates bears his singular mark--the stamp of something that we have never seen or heard, but have always wanted to feel.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
