Eric Lewis (ELEW)

"Create a whole new genre for what you do, give it a name, make it your own."
Got a great tip from a friend of mine, Will, about a new "RockJazz" musician named Eric Lewis...or ELEW. I'm still reading up on him, but I can say this - and hopefully not sound too gross - the man's got amazing finger talent. His paino skills rival Jamie Cullum's and we all know I love love LOVE Jamie Cullum - especially in You And Me Are Gone.

What Elew lacks in vocals...considering there are none...he MORE than makes up for on the jazz paino. He plays with a heavy, yet beautiful hand.

Check him out here - Especially his cover of Smells like Teen Spirit.

Thanks, Will!
