Rory Lewis, signed to EMI in South Africa and now signed to North Carolinan Indie Label innertron RECORDS. Rory has created an underground following in the US that gets enough downloads for Rolling Stone's Billboard charts to rank him directly under Eminem. Rory brings his unique African perspective of Ramones-type rock mixed with blues and hippie Jams. His followers are loyal and travel from far afield to see Rory.

One week the band may find themselves opening for George Thorougood, The Black Crowes, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Violent Femmes, Cowboy Mouth or Everclear … the next week they may find themselves bringing the house down at smokey bars and clubs from Syracuse NY down to Miami Florida.

Promoters, radio stations and bar owners across the nation continue booking Rory because they know he has a loyal underground grass roots following and he “brings ‘em in, keeps en dancin’ and drinkin’” Be it Jam bands, Tex-Mex, Ramones-type Punk Rock, Jazz or Blues – Rory gets the his crowds busting down the walls.

A favorite thing Rory’s fan love to see is his opening up solo medley of Mozart’s 40th Symphony, Scott Joplin’s The Entertainer and then Eric Johnson’s Cliffs of Dover – played perfectly – and then he’ll start singing, depending on the crowd – originals or covers such as the Grateful Dead, Sublime, Howlin Wolf, the Ramones, Stone Temple Pilots, Doc Watson, The Doors, Blues, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, Gillian Welch or Louis Armstrong. Simply put, there’s a reason why Rory's fans keep coming, there’s a reason why his downloads put him under Eminem in the Rolling Stone Billboard Charts. RORY rokz!
