Artist Biography by

William Lewis has been collecting credits since the '60s, working diligently in two areas of extreme importance in the business of reissuing material. Lewis creates bright, busy, attention-attracting album covers, his garish montage style setting just the right mood for material that ranges from the bawdy jokes of Pigmeat Markham to fervid gospel music. He has also taken care of sound remastering details for many of these projects, working in a firm that also includes family members such as Susan Lewis and Lenny Lewis.

While the majority of these productions fall into the general realm of black music, Lewis' dedication to genres such as R&B should not lead to him being confused with any of the many vintage performers named William Lewis or Bill Lewis, all of whom date from an era when digital remastering would have had something to do with hair tonic.
