Eliot Lewis– you’ve seen him as the keyboardist for Daryl Hall & John Oates and Live From Daryl’s House… and that’s a great gig, but he’s done so much more! He spent 13 years with the Average White Band, he’s an accomplished solo artist with several solo albums under his belt and he’s written for and produced several artists along the way.
VTB was lucky enough to get to set down with Eliot and “talk shop!” Enjoy!
He’s played with blues greats in Chicago and collaborated with some of the big names in Nashville. He also began producing and recording other artists in his home studio, where both of his albums were recorded. With his latest release, “Have Axe – Will Groove,” Mark Robinson has established himself as one of the go to musicians in all of Nashville. Voted “Best Roots/Americana Guitar Player” in The Alternate Root Magazine’s 2013 Readers’ Choice Awards AND named to List of “Top 20 Roots Guitar Players” by the same magazine, Mark is a force to be reckoned with! He was kind enough to take the time to talk with VTB about his latest album, his gear, his influences and what he hopes to accomplish in the future.
