ELIOT LEWIS’ TOP 3 SOCIALLY SPARKED MOMENTS OF 2017
2017 was a banner year for Eliot Lewis. A new CD Adventure (released this year), touring with Hall and Oates, his own solo gigs in between plus MTV’s Live from Daryl’s House. Here’s the multi-talented rocker’s Socially Sparked Top Three.
2017 brought many inspiring things in my musical career. Touring with Daryl Hall & John Oates and the amazing band is a dream come true. I’m also so grateful for the support they give me in my solo career. Being able to perform at an arena for 15,000 people one night and then play a small intimate venue the next night as a solo artist means so much to me.
One of the most touching things to ever happen was when a fan told me that her young daughter was extremely ill and she sang my song Determination to her over and over until she got well. That really blew my mind and reconfirmed the power that music has.
This year also saw some very turbulent moments caused by our political system.
I’m saddened by some of the division it has caused, but inspired by the awakening it has brought. I was inspired enough to write a song about it.
