Tony Lewis is a drummer/songwriter from the South Bronx, New York who has worked with a variety of stellar artists including Little Richard, Sting, Cyndi Lauper, Rakim, Sam Moore (Sam and Dave), Michael Hill's Blues Mob, and Craig Harris. 'My defining moment in choosing to play the drums came from watching cats and listening. My dad, who used to play himself, was always bringing home Down Beat magazine so I would look at all the drum ads with Max Roach, Louie Bellson and Ed Shaughnessy of the Tonight Show band fame, Bernard Purdie, Jack DeJohnette, and Billy Cobham. One particular visual for me was watching the movie "The Glenn Miller Story" with James Stewart from 1954.
