Acclaimed indie-rock songwriter Jeffrey Lewis began recording homemade cassettes at home in New York City in 1998, before coming to the attention of Rough Trade Records and releasing his first album on Rough Trade in 2001. Now with seven official albums on Rough Trade, and a number of additional self-releases and side-projects (on labels like Don Giovanni and K Records), Jeffrey Lewis and his various bandmates have toured the world and developed a devoted following from Los Angeles to London, Melbourne to Moscow, Chicago to Shanghai and beyond. Jeffrey's career has also included sharing bills and tours with The Vaselines, The Fall, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Roky Erickson, The Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Pulp and other luminaries. In addition to mixing contemplative folk narratives and garage indie-punk songs, Jeffrey is also a comic book writer/artist and includes his own illustrations in concert to accompany certain songs (like «The History of Communism» or «The Creeping Brain»). Appearing in the past as Jeffrey Lewis & The Jitters, Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard and other touring ensembles, his current band incarnation is Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts featuring Mem (Cat Tatt, Fem Doms) Pahl on bass and Brent (Dufus, Moldy Peaches) Cole on drums. Sometimes his long-time collaborator (and brother) Jack Lewis makes a guest appearance at certain gigs, adding additional bass, keyboard, percussion, vocals and other sounds. Jeffrey has self-published twelve issues of his comic book series Fuff, and Jeffrey's writing, illustrations, comic books and music have been featured by The Guardian, NPR, The History Channel, Die Zeit and The New York Times.
