Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage (USA)

“He’s a beautiful anomaly in the modern world and we should treasure him whilst we have his lo-fi, DIY, intricate songs that hold up mirrors to ourselves and the world.” Louder than War

“It’s still astonishing what Jeffrey Lewis can cram into one song. Electrifying. Again” Q Magazine

“Bad Wiring is thick with the evergreen anti-folkie’s charm” Mojo

“it’s his terrific wordplay – sharp, funny, poignant and much more that really dazzles” Uncut

“a true indie rock cult leader” Loud & Quiet

Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage have more or less perfected a scuzzy and urban style of indie-folk – a 21st Century mash-up of Pete Seeger, R. Crumb and Sonic Youth. A born and raised New Yorker, Lewis has been hard at work in the underground music and art world since the turn of the century – touring throughout the world and releasing eight acclaimed albums on the record labels Rough Trade and Don Giovanni. He is also a widely respected comics artist who self-publishes a comic book series called ‘Statics’. On stage Lewis is backed by his band the Voltage, including longtime collaborators Brent Cole (drums) and Mem Pahl (bass) as well as recent addition Mallory Feuer (violin and keys). The most recent full-length Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage album ‘Bad Wiring’ was recorded in Nashville, TN with producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo) and was released November 1, 2019.
