Bio: Dig Lewis is always in demand having played bass for Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, Boz Scaggs and John Mellencamp. When he’s not stroking the bass he composes music for film and television. As a child prodigy, Dig became an accomplished violin, viola and cello musician at the age of 13 in Detroit, Michigan, where he played on some of the earliest of Motown’s famous R&B sound tracks. Lewis followed these remarkable accomplishments by serving as a junior concert master for the Detroit Junior Symphony orchestra for three years, while concentrating his attention toward composing and conducting a diverse variety of musical scores. During this time, he conducted orchestrations and concerts for notables such as Frank Sinatra and the Pointer Sisters.
He is an alumnus of the University of Arizona and also attended Wayne State University and the University of Detroit. As his career evolved, Lewis continued to develop his skills as a musician gaining respect among the elite members of the R&B community, and was named among the top 10 bass players in the nation by both Downbeat and Bass Player magazines. He worked on numerous recording sessions as a studio musician and toured extensively with major performing artists such as Stevie Wonder, George Benson, Jack McDuff and John Mellencamp. As time progressed, Lewis became seriously interested in pursuing his true love in music which is composing. Over the years he has used his unique and formidable composing skills, both electronically and “live” to make film scores come to life
