Black Joe Lewis is not an act you want to miss, especially if you love the blues. Though by all means a "modern"
performer, his music takes clear influence from the great bluesmen of yore, from Howlin' Wolf to Wilson Pickett. If you
want to be moved by some music, grab some concert tickets and check out Lewis' amazing live
So who is Black Joe Lewis? Coming out of the thriving musical hotbed of Austin, TX, Black Joe Lewis began making a name
for himself (along with his backing band, the Honeybears) in 2007, when he released his self-titled debut album. The record
earned him some rave reviews, and some performances at South By Southwest made him a hot act to follow.
There are few modern musicians who channel the spirit of old bluesmen. The sort of sorrow that drips in their words, the
clever wordplay that keeps you listening to their songs, and the heartbreaking notes that they play aren't easy to replicate.
But Black Joe Lewis is the real deal, as his fans will tell you. Buy yourself some Black
Joe Lewis tickets, and you might become one of those fans yourself.
