About Lewis Childs
Lewis Childs has a voice that springs naturally from an old soul. As a guitar player he has command over many different styles of music that are seamlessly blended into his original work. His expressive and dynamic style emerges from the traditions of Bossa, Blues, and folk music.
The story starts sometime in the mid 1850's when his great-great-great grandfather was attacked by Indians going over a mountain pass in Colorado. He jumped in a river to escape. Generations later...a little luck and the spirit of adventure passed down making one lifetime seem like many. Lewis Childs has busked the streets of Europe, played in an Irish Folk Music combo, done field recordings in Brazil, performed with a high flying acrobatic music and dance ensemble headed by a Brazilian Master of Capoeira, and has traveled to Japan with the World Music folk duo "World of Songs." He has returned to his roots writing songs and telling stories that travel through epic sonic landscapes. Oh, his great-grandma was a semi-professional whistler.
