Andy Lewis (04/12/2022)
Andy Lewis started to DJ at university in the late 1980’s, when he discovered that people were just as excited about the strange old 60’s records he was playing as they were about contemporary tunes. Andy’s enthusiasm and expertise in his chosen musical field came to the attention of the wider media. He contributed articles for Record Collector and Mojo magazines, and was regularly a special guest on London radio station XFM. In 2001, Andy was approached by internet broadcaster www.soul24-7.com and became one of their most popular presenters. His regular Thursday morning show “The Andy Lewis Indulgence” secured for him a truly global audience, and achieved cult status amongst the oil workers of Kazakhstan.
In spite of his growing fame as a DJ, Andy’s first love has always been making music, as bass player for one of the original Brit Pop pioneers Pimlico, and later for notorious Northern Soul-sampling indie scene stalwarts Spearmint.Andy is now the bass player for Paul Weller. Andy’s played on Paul Weller’s acclaimed albums “22 Dreams” and “ Wake Up The Nation“. He’s toured extensively as part of Weller’s live band, travelling to Japan, Australia, America, Canada and throughout Europe and the UK.
Catch Andy every other Sunday at 12 – 2pm on the NYC + Culture channel.
