Lew Doty, a singer/songwriter who studied arrangement and composition at The Guitar Study Center in Manhattan and who performed his own compositions for ten years in colleges and clubs in and around New York City, hung up his guitar one day and didn't pick it up for over a decade, allowing his life to take him in other directions. His introduction to a spiritual path ten years ago reawakened the music that lay sleeping within him. Lew began writing and performing his music in his home church in southern New Jersey, and was soon playing at churches throughout the tri-state area. As everyone began asking to purchase a CD, the idea began to take hold. Letting go of the thought that it's too late to live your dream, Lew contacted Vinnie Zummo, Joe Jackson's former lead guitarist, studio musician, and jingle writer/producer, a musician friend he had known back in NYC years before, and the two launched into a working relationship producing Lew's first CD, ONE. Into this creative soup Lew brought Gary Deinstadt, Broadway keyboard player and Emmy nominated musical supervisor for CBS to work on the final tune of the project. Always difficult to categorize, his music has been called 'sacred pop.' Lew Doty writes songs from the heart and performs them in the same fashion. His voice ranges from angelic and tender to smoky and hard-driving. His songs are often deeply contemplative, but easily transition to outrageously joyful and sometimes even humorous in their style. The Philadelphia Society for Art, Literature and Music has said 'Doty sings to God with a heart on fire.' There is, however, one continuous thread throughout this music and it is intention. These songs draw the listener ever closer to Source, Spirit, God. And that is their goal. The message is one of acceptance, love, allowing, peace and connectedness. In the midst of human condition, this music will help you remember what really matters. You can't help but hear God in Lew Doty's music.
