Lewis Raye, (also known as LR) is an American recording artist, songwriter, and record producer. Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, he began composing songs on piano at age 9, eventually learning to produce them by his early teens.The singer credits Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and his family among his many musical influences. Although Raye has expressed his belief that genres “limit the musical experience”, critics have dubbed his blend of soul, funk, and r&b as “urban-pop.”
Lewis developed his talents in his church choir and school chorus. Years of rehearsal and performances helped Lewis to develop his nearly 4-octave vocal range.
In January 2014, Lewis released his debut single and music video, “Light it up”, receiving favorable reviews among fans and critics. Described as “sultry and seductive,” the mid-tempo song displays the crooner’s smooth signature vocals. The video, directed by Norris Gresham, was filmed in Atlanta, GA and contains elements of choreographed dance.
