Austin-based songwriter and guitarist Black Joe Lewis is hitting the road with his band The Honeybears to bring some vintage blues and rock n roll to cities across the country. We’re offering ticket giveaways for select shows!
Backed by his band the Honeybears, Lewis draws inspiration from such legendary “shouters” as Howlin’ Wolf, Wilson Pickett, and James Brown, as well as smoother crooners including Sam Cooke. Black Joe Lewis released his debut album on Weary in 2007. Around the same time, his appearance at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas garnered increased fan and press support. In 2009, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears released Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is!, produced by Jim Eno (Spoon), on Lost Highway. The band toured relentlessly over the next year before reconvening at Austin’s Public Hi-Fi studio with Eno to record its even grittier follow-up, Scandalous. The set contained an appearance by the gospel group the Relatives on “You Been Lyin’.” Scandalous was released on Lost Highway in March of 2011. In 2013, Lewis returned with his fourth studio album, the raw and raucous Electric Slave. (https://myspace.com/blackjoelewis/bio)
