2022 Burlington Discover Jazz Festival


Radio Bean


A native of Camden, New Jersey, Eric Lewis began his musical studies at 2 years old and would ultimately receive the Rodger’s and Hammerstein full merit scholarship to the Manhattan School of Music. A Dean’s List student, upon graduation, he toured the world, recorded and performed with Wynton Marsalis & the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Elvin Jones, Cassandra Wilson, Roy Hargrove, and John Hendricks among others.

A decade into his career, he reemerged as ELEW and began fusing his piano techniques with rock guitar-based ideas and experimental prepared piano methods, generating a powerful crossover brand he coined “rockjazz.” In addition to piano performance, appearing in and scoring for film, ELEW is a prominent international DJ. He has has created disco infernos for multiple events such as the World Economic Forum, TED, Art Basel, A-list Oscar parties, the Monte-Carlo Gala, the Cannes Film Festival. In some cases, ELEW places the turntables within the piano. This "pianoturntablism" is a startling technique which allows ELEW to seamlessly play multiple songs at once in different keys and tempos like a DJ but on the piano.
