“It’s rare to find a jazz artist who so successfully merges his love
of soul and groove with such a rich spirituality—but Dante
Lewis knows where his inspiration and blessings come from.
So he’s not shy about finding ways to share both the jazz and
the gospel on his infectious and super soulful first recordings.
Like his idol Kirk Whalum, he artfully uses God’s gifts and puts
the breath of heaven in every note, whether he’s funking up
a classic Luther hit or setting the mood (what a perfect name
for his debut album!) with sensual, ambient original ballads.
In a world, where most artists keep the sacred and secular
separate for commercial reasons, Lewis’ boldness is refreshing.
Every track on Set The Mood offers something to delight the
listener’s spirit and inner groove loving romantic, but you just
know when you hear “Only What You Do For Christ Will Last”
that you’re listening to this amazing artist’s truest heart.”
Although Dante concentrates on headlining solo
performances at such local Columbia hotspots as
The Blue Martini and Rust, he has also performed
on stage with numerous R&B and contemporary
jazz greats, including Jonathan Butler, Ashford
and Simpson, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Kirk
Whalum, Norman Brown,Will Donato, Paul Jackson Jr,
Brian Simpson, Boney James, Nick Colionne
Pieces Of A Dream, Angela Winbush, Mighty
Clouds of Joy, Lamar Campbell, Daniel D, Terence
Young, and Marvin Sapp. He has performed in
Columbia at The Rowan Arts Festival, The Koger
Center, Township Auditorium and Midland’s Tech
Theatre, in Omaha, Nebraska at Metro Community
College and opened a show for Whalum at
Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, North
