One Street Over is currently rated as one of the top Singer-Songwriter/Jazz/Blues acts in the US (also see Reverbnation.com/MichaelLewis). Performing as a band or an acoustic duo, OSO features Bridgette and Michael Lewis -- a dynamic Father-Daughter duo from Nashville, TN, now relocated to Washington State. Michael Lewis is a full-time studio musician, producer/engineer and songwriter who has toured, recorded, produced and performed with a number of major artists. Both Bridgette and Michael have thousands of hours of experience in the studio working on an array of projects. As a result they are extremely well versed in many genres of music and can pull off a variety of styles with great authenticity, including; various styles of Jazz, Rock (acoustic rock for the duo), Blues, Country, Motown, modern hits and more.
Michael Lewis is originally from the Bay Area of California and brings that distinctive West Coast flavor to the OSO sound. Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, Toto and similar artists come to mind -- Michael has that West Coast, Blue Eyed Soul sound. As a guitarist, Michael has been compared with any number of West Coast flavored Jazz/Blues guitar greats including Robben Ford, Larry Carlton and Lee Ritenour.
Michael has seven gear endorsements, he also has his own line of electric guitars (MichaelLewisGuitars.com). Michael toured the US and internationally doing hundreds of shows as a solo artist before relabeling himself as One Street Over to allow more room for the amazing vocal talents of Bridgette Lewis . Since returning to the Northwest, One Street Over has continued to grow in popularity. The group averages 75 shows per year and is featured as guest performers with the Spokane Jazz Orchestra every 4th of July in front of a crowd of 20,000 people.
OSO released an album in 2012 entitled "Snapshot" and is currently working on new album projects featuring several legendary artists. This new project is "under wraps" pending the outcome of discussions which are currently underway with major labels. (Snapshot has also been temporarily pulled from digital distribution but is still available on their website at OneStreetOver.com)
One Street Over features a high level musicianship and explores unique musical boundaries while maintaining a comfortable, familiar listening experience. Their studio recordings feature top notch Nashville session players with a long list of major credentials and Grammys. When performing as a band, OSO brings some of the top musicians in the region and for major shows they fly out a group of players from Nashville who have worked with Michael for over 15 years.
For the duo shows, Michael creates elaborate loops live (using guitar, percussion and voice) with an incredible blend of vocals between Bridgette and Michael. This group can play the room and set the right atmosphere (like they do at places such the Coldwater Creek Winebar in Sandpoint, Idaho) or they can take over and rock the house (like they do each year at the Mt. Spokane Ski Resort).
