Austin, Texas-based Dark Joe Lewis is a modern vocalist and guitarist having a bent toward classic blues, spirit, and R&B. Supported by his music group the Honeybears, Lewis pulls motivation from such famous “shouters” as Howlin’ Wolf, Wilson Pickett, and Wayne Brown, aswell as smoother crooners like Sam Cooke. Dark Joe Lewis released his debut album on Weary in 2007. Around once, his appearance at Austin’s South by Southwest event garnered increased lover and press support. In ’09 2009, Dark Joe Lewis & the Honeybears released Inform ‘Em What Your Name Is definitely! on Shed Highway, made by Spoon drummer Jim Eno. The music group toured relentlessly over another yr before reconvening at Austin’s General public Hi-Fi studio room with Eno to record the actually grittier follow-up, Scandalous. The arranged included an appearance by gospel group the Family members on “You Been Lyin’.” Scandalous premiered on Shed Highway in March of 2011. In 2013, Vagrant Information released Electric powered Slave, that was merely credited to Dark Joe Lewis. While Lewis was still dealing with his music group, he’d grown sick and tired of the Honeybears label. But Lewis shortly found that both supporters and promoters dreamed that its lack supposed he was functioning as a single act. After acquiring some downtime, Lewis cut back the Honeybears billing for 2017’s Backlash (his initial record for INgrooves GROUP), which also discovered him discovering harder grooves and a more powerful rock & move influence.
