Carrying forward a vibrant legacy of music and ministry, Bobby Lewis brings a refreshing new flavor of contemporary urban gospel. The son of legendary jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis, Bobby studied music in high school at the Chicago Academy for the Arts. He then attended the University of Miami School of Music before moving to Los Angeles to work as a professional drummer. While in L.A., Bobby jumped head-first into the music industry by working at Death Row Records, and performed live as the drummer with Immature on the “We Got It” Tour and with Jon. B. on the “Cool Relax” “promo” Tour. In 2005, Bobby contributed vocals to his brother Frayne’s self-titled album, and he’s also written and performed on his father’s albums throughout the years.
Currently, Bobby Lewis, and his wife Crystal are active members at J.W. James A.M.E church in Maywood, Ill., where Rev. Garry S. Mitchell serves as Pastor. You can say their church life is Divinely arranged, as the ministry was co-founded by Bobby’s’ aunt and Ramsey’s sister, the Rev. Dr. Lucille Lewis Jackson. Bobby and Crystal have three incredible children: Jordan, Niya, and Asia. Bobby is pursuing a Master’s degree in divinity while launching his ministry “Joy’s Journey” this year. His ministry creates and spreads content focusing on the JOY of the LORD in our journey through life… exactly what
the EP “I’m a Worshipper” is all about.
Being based in Chicago gives Bobby a unique perspective of how faith is vital to get us through these tough and troubled times. With just one listen, you will hear how Bobby exemplifies his family tradition of music. Amen!
