LEWIS (ex-The Kinison) album out now, "ringing power-pop hooks"

"Spotlights Lewis' particular blend of humor, incisive observation and ability to create an unlikely but undeniable hook. Think of a sweeter Guided By Voices or songs where power-punk clich├ęs are muted for the sake of the song." -- PopMatters

L.A. multi-instrumentalist Christopher Lee Lewis, with the nom-de-tune LEWIS, releases his solo debut full length Son On The Floor today via Sona Baby Records. Ghost Cult Magazine gave an early preview of the album yesterday HERE. Hear & share Son On The Floor via Bandcamp, Spotify and Apple Music

PopMatters recently shared hook-filled single "Bathe Clean" HERE. Outburn Magazine hosted "What We Give" HERE. Lead single "Tobi" premiered previously via The Spill Magazine HERE

Christopher L. Lewis (moniker LEWIS) is an American songwriter, musician and producer. He grew up in Oblong, Illinois (pop. 1,391) and began his solo career in 2019, having previously been the frontman for the punk outfit, The Kinison. Starting on drums from the age of four, Christopher has been involved in a number of groups since ranging from the mellow pop-rock group, Pioneers, to signer-songwriter acoustic duo Canada.

Throughout Christopher's career, he has recorded several studio full-lengths, three EPs and one live album. His 2019 EP LEWIS, released through his own Sona Baby Records, is the first release to showcase his musical talent across all instruments. Christopher's Mom said: "It's his best drumming since 1987!" 

LEWIS recorded the forthcoming full-length album at fabled studio Dave's Room in Los Angeles with Grammy nominated engineer/producer Paul Fig, for release in 2020. A prolific artist, he's been known to write up to thirty songs in a weekend.

Having played at Coachella, multiple Warped Tours, and Wembley Arena, Christopher is no outsider to being on the stage. You are sure to see him live soon at a venue near you, as soon as that becomes a thing again. 

Son On The Floor will be available on LP and download on August 21st, 2020 via Sona Baby Records. Pre-orders are available HERE
