Lewis is a world class harp/vocalist/guitarist/band leader. Here is some info on him.

Texas Blues Legend Lewis Cowdrey has been living in Wichita, Kansas for several years and playing locally. The Lewis Cowdrey story will be in an upcoming issue of REAL BLUES. Lewis was based in L.A. in 1968 leading a Black Blues band featuring Pee Wee Crayton. He also worked with Johnny Otis on a belated recording project before returning to Lubbock where he met a young woman who admired his record collection (Angela Strehli). Lewis also was co-founder of STORM, a legendary Austin, Texas Blues band that boasted Denny Freeman, Jimmie Vaughn, Keith Ferguson and W.C. Clark. His 1994 CD on Antone’s, “It’s Lewis,” is probably the Best Texas Blues release of the last 25 years. Unfortunately for Lewis, it was so good that it caused politics/jealousy to work against his career. It’s a topic not too many musicians are willing to talk about but when you have an Artist that’s so Great that he makes others feel/look 'less-than' the ugly side of Human Nature rears its' head...so despite the reluctance of certain people to help us find Lewis, we found him anyway. And, if we can turn the Blues World onto this incredibly talented, charismatic and AUTHENTIC Bluesman then everybody wins, right ?
