2019

Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage have more or less perfected a scuzzy and urban style of indie-folk -- a 21st Century mash-up of Pete Seeger, R. Crumb and Sonic Youth. A born and raised New Yorker, Lewis has been hard at work in the underground music and art world since the turn of the century-- touring throughout the world and releasing eight acclaimed albums on the record labels Rough Trade and Don Giovanni. He is also a widely respected comics artist who continues to self-publish an ongoing comic book series called Fuff. On stage, Lewis is backed by longtime collaborators Brent Cole (drums) and Mem Pahl (bass, keys). At one time, they were known as “Los Bolts.” However, Lewis has a tradition of changing band names -- if not members -- with each release. As such, the group has been renamed “The Voltage” in 2019. The trio’s spectacular new full-length album Bad Wiring was recorded in Nashville, TN with producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo) and will be released November 1, 2019, Don Giovanni Records (USA) and Moshi Moshi (UK/Europe).
