Sharon Lewis, Blues Belter

What began as a means of personal release in 1993 with the band Under The Gun has blossomed in the new millennium into one of Chicago's hottest blues acts.

Sharon Lewis (Texas Fire) has opened for or performed with such artists as Koko Taylor, Son Seals, Denise LaSalle, Robben Ford, Coco Montoya, Billy Branch, Melvin Taylor, and Sugar Blue to name only a few.

In 1995, Sharon recorded on the Delmark label with Johnny B. Moore as one of the 'Women of Blues Chicago' (unreleased).

Ms. Lewis went on to play all of Chicago's major Blues clubs, including Kingston Mines, Buddy Guy'sLegends, Rosa's, Blue Chicago, Famous Dave's (now Isaac Hayes), and B.L.U.E.S.

Sharon has also performed at the Greek Festival and the Moos & Blues Festival in Darien, Wisconsin.

Her first major international tour in 1998 fired up the Czech Republic, Germany, Luxembourg, France, Holland and Belgium with The Next Generation Band. During this tour she recorded with Carl Wyatt (Living In Exile: Singing The Blues) on Blue Road Records, Luxembourg.

After a year's hiatus from performing, Ms. Lewis returned in 2001 to open with Billy Branch & The Sons of The Blues at Chicago?s Rooster Blues and immediately reclaimed her status as one of Chicago's next generation blues vocalists.

In March 2001 (the 'Best Tour') Sharon returned to Europe for an extensive Czech Republic tour and again garnered raves as the 'Vocalist of the Month' in Liberca, Czech Republic. Highly acclaimed reviews for this tour sparked a 2002 Tour (the 'Very Best Tour') with a revamped Next Generation Band, Jan Korinek and GROOVE. With GROOVE she toured extensively in the Czech Republic and Poland, opening for Robben Ford and enjoying equal billing status with Robben and Michael Urbniak (New York) at a two-day festival in the Czech Republic.

For the past five years Ms. Lewis has performed primarily with The Mojo Kings at such venues as Pop's Highwood, Slice of Chicago, and Orazio's.

In September 2002 she received a Reader "Critic's Choice" commendation.

Ms. Lewis' debut CD "Everything Is Gonna Be Alright" (with Under the Gun) was enthusiastically received upon its release this July.
