November 19, 2012

Brandon “Bleew” Lewis, a musician, drummer, and teacher, hails out of south eastern Texas. Raised in the small town of Somerville, Texas near Austin, Brandon began his exploration of music under the guidance of Carl Idlebird, who gave him the basic skills of working as a musician. While under his tutelage, Brandon began working as a professional musician in Austin while in high school. Later, Brandon went on to attend the University of North Texas where he studied with the great drummer and instructor, Ed Soph. Lewis moved to New York City where he attended New School University. At New School University, Brandon furthered his studies under jazz greats such as Reggie Workman, Charles Tolliver, and Lewis Nash, to name a few.

With the blessings and lessons learned from these aforementioned master instructors, Brandon has gone on to play with many great artists such as Kenny Garrett, Harry Whitaker, Myron Walden, D.D Jackson, Alan Jay Palmer, Alex Harding, Lucian Ban, Benito Gonzalez, and many more. He has recorded for several artists and situations spanning the styles of jazz, funk, and gospel. Along with these experiences Brandon has also played in the orchestra for the Broadway show, “The Color Purple” and is currently working in the off Broadway play “Memphis”. In addition to Broadway, Brandon Lewis made a cameo appearance in the movie “American Gangster” marking his debut on the big screen. Brandon “Blew” Lewis is considered as one of the more innovative drummers on the New York Jazz scene.

You can see Brandon and his cast of stellar friends at tonight’s late night jam session at Fat Cat on Christopher Street. See you there!
