Lewis possesses a signature sound that combines his inimitable cross-flat picking acoustic guitar style with the sustained elegance of the violin. Often played together in live performance, Lewis employs the latest looping technology to overdub his solo guitar parts with both the violin and the guitar as he successfully recreates the music from his 22-CD catalog.
As an original folksinger-songwriter he alternates between the confessional and spiritual, while also drawing from a vast repertoire of old-time, folk-rock, and the obscure and unheralded singer-songwriters from the ‘60s and ‘70s.
His two latest releases are the all instrumental folk-rock impressionist CD Vermont Resurrection and Unbounded, Lewis’ tribute album to one of the pioneers of the singer-songwriter movement: Eric Andersen.
Of “Vermont Resurrection,” Dan Bolles, of Vermont’s Seven Days, wrote, “On his 22nd album, prolific local composer and multi-instrumentalist Spencer Lewis attempts to synthesize the impact and aftermath of the (Irene) storm through a suite of eight impressionistic folk instrumentals titled “Vermont Resurrection.”
