On his first Chalkboard Records release, Clearer, singer/songwriter Stewart Lewis proves what his strong base of ardent fans have discovered: Stewart's voice, lyrics and melodies stand out in a crowded field, conveying emotion, passion and exceptional artistry. On 'Clearer,' Stewart has teamed up with renowned producer Eddie Ashworth (Sublime, Long Beach Dub AllStars, Slightly Stoopid) and two talented musicians, bassist Christian Dunn (The Incredible Moses Leroy) and drummer Joey Galvan (Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash) to create an album that speaks to the soul. With influences as diverse as Van Morrison, Stephen Stills, and Coldplay, Stewart's sound is part stripped down acoustic, part experimental electric with underlying folk influences, and pure soul. Stewart's three self-financed releases have sold over 10,000 copies. He has performed live over the past several years at numerous venues both within the U.S. and abroad, including recent sold out shows in London. His powerful stage presence and performance have earned him the opportunity to open for such major artists as Sheryl Crow, Ani Difranco, Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole, Roseanne Cash, The Samples, and Patty Larkin, who said, '...he won't be an opening act for long!' Stewart began his career as a founding member of the trio Acoustic Junction, along with his brother Reed Foehl and childhood friend Jeff Haycock. They went on to develop a major indie following, with a huge fan base in Colorado and New England. They also became recognized as one of the top college acts in the country, and their first album, Love it for What It Is, sold over 40,000 copies. During his five years with Acoustic Junction, the band opened for Blues Traveler, the Dave Matthews Band, Fastball, and The Band. Music has always been front and center in Stewart's life. His parents founded one of Boston's most beloved acts, the bluegrass band the Center Streeters. From the age of seven, Stewart was playing drums and singing harmonies with the family band, later taking up the guitar and piano. This experience helped Stewart to become the confident and engaging performer he is today. Now that Stewart has teamed up with Chalkboard Records, look for him to be a powerful force on the road, in the stores, and in the hearts of music fans everywhere.
