WelcomeWelcome to the Official Michael C. Lewis website.
Welcome to the Official Michael C. Lewis website. I am doing some upgrades to the site. I hope you enjoy the changes. Well 2017 is in the books! I want to wish everyone Happy New Year! I hope that everyone has a healthy and prosperous 2018!
2017 was an eventful year. The highlight of 2017 was my daughter Destini graduating from High School and completing her first semester at Howard University. I was emotionally impacted by the effects of Hurricane Harvey on my hometown of Houston as well as the devastation felt by the other areas affected be a hurricane season for the ages.
I was blessed to have some great performances in 2017. I was able to see growth and clarity of vision in my live performances. My performance highlight of 2017 was performing for my Forest Brook High School Class of 77 Reunion in Houston in October. Another highlight was sharing the stage with Destini at one of my performances in Harlem where she sang “At Last” with my band. I saw my production, engineering, trumpet, and vocal skills all progress this past year. I look forward to sharing my gifts to an even larger audience in 2018. Thank you for your continued support. God Bless.

The full Intimate Journey Project is slated for 2018 release . It has been a long labor of love but I am very excited about the results. I am honored to be working with some excellent artists who are giving me a hand with the production. First, I want to thank Contemporary Jazz Saxophone Star Walter Beasley for his incredible artistry on Reasons. Other artists include drummers and drum programmers Victor Wise and Jermaine “Beat Down” McQueen from my old group BluSyde. Andrei Carriere and Alva Nelson have laid down some funky rhythm guitar and keyboard to a couple of tracks. Billy “Spaceman” Patterson is making some incredible contribution on guitar as well. Grammy Award winning producer Jeff “The Jedi Master” Jones will be bringing his awesome mixing and mastering skills to the production. There are some amazing contributions from producer/arranger Gerald Trottman! There will be others added to the mix as well. So stay tuned. Thanks for your patience. The Intimate Journey continues! God is Good!
