John Lewis / Press

“John Lewis is one of a kind. His music is best described as "gutsy." There's a very visceral feel to his vocals; he's digging down deep into his own gut, and hitting you in yours. Listen to "Wicked Man." There is pain and anguish in his voice. After hearing it I always just stop. I want only silence, so the echos from the song continue to ring in my ears. It's a really remarkable musical statement.”

Howard Lawrence - Reverbnation

“Once in awhile, one hopes to run across music that completes a total package. Composition, arrangement & musicianship are the keys. John Lewis has them all & is unlocking our ears for the future!.”

R. Pickett Bugg - Reverbnation

“The only thing I know for sure when I visit John's page is that I'm gonna find a new nugget to chomp on. Tonight it's Broken Stone. Gritty and soulful. He lets the vocals and acoustic guitar drive, but those other elements in the back provide heft. John's compositions always seems to meander at times in unexpected ways--how refreshing!--but they also come back to the main thrust to finish off the listener”

“bitter tears is SWEET! solid electric sound on Rewind. g ”

Thadeus Project - Reverbnation

“What drives John is the need for catharsis. You can hear it in his memorable songs. His music is dominated by a powerful, rich voice and emotive acoustic guitar playing. Sometimes, like on Angels, that's enough for him to create a heartbreaker. On other tracks like Matter of Time, John tosses in a propulsive rhythm section and just the right amount of a lyrical electric guitar to build symphonic rockers. His sound would be equally at home in Seattle and Nashville.”

“With Wicked Man John Lewis has done the unthinkable: created a 5 1/2-minute epic masterpiece that manages to comfortably cram so many movements and elements--some bold, some subtle--into a mesmerizing whole. I actually had to listen to this twice in succession and then walk away to digest it. The influences are unmistakable. The vocals are rich, textured, harmonious and haunting. The arrangement is layered without being cluttered. (I gave up keeping count of the guitar solos along the way.) If John were a prog-rocker, I swear he could turn this one track into a side-long suite. If I had made this I'd have hung up the cleats afterwards and gone fishing.”

Howard Lawrence - Reverbnation

“It's always just a "Matter of Time" before you run across a very talented artist on Reverb that makes you stop in your tracks!! John is one of them!! ”
