Lewis grew up in Norwalk, CT, the youngest of three children, in what he describes as a very musical environment. Although his mother was a classical pianist, Lewis’ first instrument was the drums, which he discovered at age 10. When he was 12 years old, he formed his first band, Take Off, with three childhood friends. The father of Take Off’s bass player worked for several major record labels and was instrumental in exposing young Eliot to many of the artists of the day, including The Who, Elton John, and Alice Cooper. He even arranged a jam session for the boys at his house with Peter Frampton.
At age 16, Lewis picked up the guitar and began writing his own songs. A few years later, he taught himself keyboards and bass, and learned to program synthesizers. Today, Lewis plays five instruments, and is a completely self-contained songwriter and musician.In his early 20s, Lewis was introduced to Dan Hartman, a singer, songwriter, and record producer responsible for hits such as "Free Ride," "Relight My Fire," and "I Can Dream About You." Lewis began working with Hartman, like Joe Cocker’s Unchain My Heart and Tina Turner’s Simply the Best.
The “featured” BlogTalkRadio program “Westchester On the Level with Narog and Aris” opens the Wednesday, October 29, 2014th broadcast day at 10:00 a.m. EDT with Wednesday Co-Hosts Dan Murphy, editor of the Rising Media Group and Hezi Aris, editor of the Yonkers Tribune in discussion and endorsement of local candidates seeking election or revelation to respective offices.
At approximately 10:30 a.m., we focus on the latest overnight news events gleaned from the international stage.
At 11:00 a.m., David Lanz, platinum selling and Grammy-nominated Pianist and Composer attend the microphone with Kristin Amarie, a versatile Vocalist, who was a partner in the latest original sound known as Forever Christmas, a partnership n music and in life.
They were careful to avoid clichés in their writing and overused cover choices. “It’s about the spiritual side of the holiday and a lot about love as well,” says Kristin. “Christmas has become so commercialized. That’s why in one of the lyrics we ask, ‘What is Christmas?’ At the very end the answer is peace within. That’s what the real message is supposed to be.” and she adds, “To me, Christmas is also the most romantic time of year.”

"Musicians You Should Know"
If you are not acquainted with the genius and the greatness of Mary Lou Williams, please let us introduce you to one of the most amazing figures in Jazz history. Pianist, Arranger and Composer, Mary Lou was beloved by MANY - including Duke Ellington. He couldn't say enough about her style and the person behind it. Ms. Williams wrote hundreds of compositions, arranged for the prestigious male bandleaders of her day (remember those times - a WOMAN arranging? A WOMAN having that kind of influence?!) and was both friend and mentor to Monk, Miles, Parker and Gillespie.
Known as "The Little Piano Girl of East Liberty" (Pittsburgh), Mary Lou was self-taught and performed in public for the first time at age six. Her confidence never wavered through the years and she came to the attention of those who appreciated her strong skills and positive personality. One that landed on WNEW in New York City - as a broadcaster with a popular show.
So MUCH to say about Mary Lou - and no one can say it better than CAROL BASH. She is the director and producer of "Mary Lou Williams: The Lady Who Swings The Band." This noble endeavor is an IndieGoGo project that is looking to fulfill its mission by October 28th! There are important movers and shakers involved in this film who LOVE Jazz and LOVE the subject of this labor of love. You'd recognize the names - and we'll drop them when Carol visits on 10/21 at one p.m. Eastern time.
You'll hear about the musican and spiritual evolution of Mary Lou - she converted to Roman Catholicism later in life - and it colored her world in a way that surprised even herself. Maybe inspired by that journey, she said: "Jazz is love - you have to lay into it and let it flow." Join us in The Chat Room on 10/21!
Meet one of the busiest and hardest working ladies at the Jersey Shore. It’s been said that if you want something done, give it to a busy person. So, you probably should give it to Beverly Beveridge. People tell me I’m busy, but Beverly’s schedule puts me, and probably you, to shame. She’s been involved with radio (Tuesday Tunes at 2 on 1450 WCTC Radio in New Brunswick), and is a lifelong pianist who teaches at the Goddard School in Tinton Falls. Her PR background propelled her into promoting musicians such as Slim Chance and the Gamblers and many others. She’s PR Director for FMC Productions in NY, PR for the House of Cupcakes of Princeton, winner of Cupcake Wars on Food Network; Independent Writer for Jersey Shore Restaurant and Events for Examiner.com and NAWBO-CJ; writer for examiner.com and Trip Advisor and www.visitthejerseyshore.com. Bev also works closely with the Tourism Bureau and all chambers to promote their events. See what I mean about busy? As a member of the working press, she was granted an official White House Press Pass and covered President Obama’s visit to Asbury Park with Gov Christie. And somehow Bev even found the time to participate in the Wrecking Ball video with Bruce Springsteen. Other projects Beverly will share include the Jersey Girl Barefoot Sandal and some of her favorite fundraising projects. We won’t say that Bev has it all, but she sure does it all! After the interview, visit After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

#EmbraceTheSlash: Succeeding professionally at this, that AND the other
Some of us pursue several professions simultaneously. We have a 'side gig' or hobby that we devote time and energy to - aside from our primary occupation.
You've met them. The history teacher who plays in a band. The executive/avid scuba diver. The techie by day/world traveler/pianist. This show is about "embracing the slash". We were inspired by this article by Jessica Stillman. http://tinyurl.com/m8w32f8 … and this one by Kate Hamill http://tinyurl.com/n4azj6a
Trina and Tamarra are both career coaches who also have 9-5 jobs. We want to dig into this & encourage others with multiple interests to join this robust discussion. How would you describe yourself using slashes? Here are ours:
Trina: career coach/radio host/ fundraiser/writer/"pink warrior" (breast cancer awareness advocate) (trinaramsey.com)
Tamarra: Career coach/radio host/mentor & motivational speaker/active Sorority member (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Do you have multiple roles? Join the conversation! #EmbraceTheSlash
