Dave Lewis – Bass
Guitar. 12 String Guitar. Mandolin. Banjar. Melodica. Keyboards.
As well as being a much admired
and accomplished multi-instrumentalist and singer, Dave
is a fine recording engineer, mixer, arranger and producer,
mostly operating from Lakeside Studios in Bristol,
which he owns.
These and other skills were
hard earned during grueling world tours throughout the
1970s and 80s, where Dave was part of the team that got
the likes of U2, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Tina Turner,
Emmylou Harris and the Hot Band, amongst others, out
on the road.
As well as with The Shrinks,
Dave’s warm baritone voice and cool bass riffs
can be heard accompanying Bristol singer songwriter,
Steve Hogg (www.stevehogg.net).
Dave also performs as a duo with Hilary under the billboard-friendly
name of Dave
Lewis and Hilary Steven, recently receiving rapturous
applause on their support slots for Julie Felix and Paul
Jones at the Bristol Folk house (http://groups.msn.com/BristolFolkHouseMusic/homepage.msn).
