Lewis Harris has spent the past 20 years writing and performing music throughout the East with his band BUCKET. Their self-produced and distributed recordings present classic rock excess filtered through indie-rock parameters; Led Zeppelin gets into a fight with Pavement and somehow Jeff Tweedy has to break it up...
Add to this Lew's work as a studio session player and bassist sideman for a long list of touring rock projects, and you've got a resume' that includes many of the most popular music venues and recordings with artists like Sparklehorse and Hanson.
Now, with his new recording "scattered ashes," the long time Richmond VA rock legend delivers the record of his life in a beautifully-crafted song cycle about the struggles of living the rock life once all your friends have either made it or moved on.
The live shows are often a frenetic Neil Young-meets-Meat Puppets sludge rock workout, jumping from fragile sweetness to stream-of-conciousness angst. It can have you banging your head with a nervous flutter in your belly, always unsure of what is about to happen.
Aside from making music, Lew enjoys spending time with the family, and being a member of the senior class at any skatepark.
