Arthur Lewis is a singer-songwriter from Queens with a degree in music from Yale. As a working musician in NYC, he's played whatever role was needed—including pianist, percussionist, guitarist, backup singer, musical director, composer, and engineer—for countless musicians, comedians, and theatrical performances.

As a solo performer, Arthur blends his indie soul originals with improvisation, using the songs as springboards to create vocal and instrumental landscapes, with an emphasis on spontaneous melody and open space. He performs regularly with multiple New York-based collectives, including the Melting Pot Crew, This Is Not the Radio, and Freestyle Love Supreme. He self-produced his first solo album, If We Were, and continues to spend time in the studio, recording most recently with Soul Khan, and Joel aka MaG, in addition to new solo work scheduled for release in 2014.

Arthur also builds software for musicians, with past and present projects including a markup language for chord charts and a series of ear-training games.

He tends to be a bit camera-shy, but if you look closely, you can spot him wearing a spectacular denim vest in Across The Universe.

I'm also a developer
