When you meet Alice Cooper backstage at Madison Square Garden at the age of eleven…

Follow that up with a weekly ritual of being backstage for The Who, Elton John, and a host of others, the natural progression would be at the age of fourteen to jam with Peter Frampton at your friend’s house, right?

Well, apparently that was just another day in the early life of Eliot Lewis, and ever since his musical career has just kept building on those experiences.

These days Eliot Lewis can be found playing keyboards with the Hall & Oates band, as well as interacting with legendary musicians and hot new artists of every genre on the Live From Daryl’s House broadcast. Artists ranging from John Oates, Smokey Robinson, The O’Jays, Cheap Trick, Aaron Neville, Billy Gibbons, Grace Potter, Todd Rundgren, Amos Lee, Elle King, Joe Walsh, Keb’ Mo’ and dozens of others have made the trek originally to Daryl’s home and now to his successful club in Pawling NY. There they get to hang out with Daryl and the band, talk a little, eat a little, and make some fine, fine music. And Eliot Lewis has been there for each one of the 82 episodes. Oh, to be a fly on the wall.

After spending some time as a songwriter with a couple of publishing deals, Eliot spent thirteen years as a key member of the Average White Band. A little while after leaving AWB, Eliot Lewis began working on Daryl Hall’s solo tour and soon after joined the Hall & Oates band.

A multi-instrumentalist, Eliot Lewis has released several solo albums including his latest, Adventure. As he prepares for the Adventure release party this Sunday January 1st, Eliot took the time to speak with Onstage in depth about what has been a most interesting musical career.
