Joe Lewis hails from Austin, TX — where Southern soul meets mid-western blues and vagabond punk. Unable to keep away from the infectious music scene Austin is infamous for, Joe Lewis soaked it all in, purchasing his first guitar while working in a pawnshop. The rest is history.  Once compared to "The Godfather of Soul," Black Joe Lewis is now letting his punk-flag fly, alongside his gritty shouting and raw guitar riffs on his group's third studio album ‘Electric Slave’. The recording showcases Joe howling in true Joe-Lewis-fashion all the while highlighting just how ballsy Lewis can really get. Of the album title, Lewis says, "Electric Slave is what people are today with their faces buried in their iPhones and the only way to hold a conversation is through text."

Much like not wanting to be a slave to cell phones, Black Joe Lewis refuses to be confined by genre-defining boundaries. On his third LP, Lewis still has plenty of women-chasing, hard-knocks and all around good-time tales and, as always, tracks full of horns and blues riffs.

'Electric Slave' was produced in large part by Grammy award winner Stuart Sikes (White Stripes, Cat Power, Modest Mouse) and recorded at Church House Studios in Austin.
