Lewis Cowdrey was born 1945 in Albuquerque, NM, is one of the original founders of the Austin blues scene. His band, Storm, featured a who’s who of the Austin legends. Lewis is a world class harpman, vocalist, guitarist, and band leader.

He has been living in Wichita, Kansas for several years and playing locally. Lewis was based in L.A. in 1968 leading a Black Blues band featuring Pee Wee Crayton. He also worked with Johnny Otis on a belated recording project before returning to Lubbock where he met a young woman who admired his record collection (Angela Strehli) Strehli and Lewis Cowdrey formed the Fabulous Rockets. Lewis also was co-founder of STORM, a legendary Austin, Texas Blues band that boasted Denny Freeman, Jimmie Vaughn, Keith Ferguson and W.C. Clark.

His second 1994 CD on Antone’s, “It’s Lewis,” (debut was a year earlier) is probably the Best Texas Blues release of the last years. Unfortunately for Lewis, it was so good that it caused politics/jealousy to work against his career. Worked with bluesman Wichitan poet Wes Race. This brilliant singer/harpist from Texas believes he is “the white James Brown”, and he is!
