NJBS Interviews Son Lewis

Son Lewis

Cristy Benvenutti, President, of the North Jersey Blues Society interviewed Son Lewis. Son Lewis has been an active figure on the Blues music scene for some time. His work as a modern-day exponent of the Blues, and R&B, has led him to recognition as a performer and recording artist. Son began playing Blues guitar in the 1960s, influenced greatly by artists as diverse as Robert Johnson, Hubert Sumlin (whom he accompanied on stage in December 2006), Otis Rush, and Elmore James. His own particular guitar style developed under the guidance of Blues guitarist Danny Kalb (founder of the Blues Project, a seminal Bluesband of the 1960s). Lewis' reputation has been built upon solid live solo performances and his own. As a solo artist, performing the traditional country Blues, and with his band, rocking juke joints with electric blues, Son has become known as a faithful, and loving interpreter of this nearly lost musical art form. In live performance, TV, radio, and on recordings, Son Lewis has proved to audiences everywhere that the Blues is a vibrant, and exciting form of musical entertainment!
