Tony Lewis Biography

Born on Dec. 21, 1957, in a working-class neighborhood in London, his love of music started early. The radio was always on in Lewis’ home, and his first influences were the classic 1960s singles played on an old radio gram. At age 9, Tony first heard the Beatles, and immediately he was hooked. Later he became a huge fan of T Rex and other glam rock bands, even modeling his hair on the great Marc Bolan.

Tony knew Alan Jackman at school and they formed a band, with Tony playing bass. Since he could only afford a 3 foot guitar lead, he was never able to sing because he couldn’t reach the microphone. A few years later, Tony put an advertisement in a London music paper and met guitar player John Spinks. They later formed a prog rock band called Syrius B with Alan.

When Punk Rock exploded onto the music scene in London, the group disbanded. Tony went out on his own, playing in various local bands in pubs and clubs all over London, by this time he had a longer guitar lead and stepped up to the microphone to take on the vocals. Tony was playing one night in a pub in East London, John Spinks was there and John said “With your voice and my songs, we could form a great band”. John asked Tony if he could play bass and sing on some demo’s he had written, Alan played drums on the demos and the chemistry felt right and the songs started to flow, so “The Baseball Boys” named after a street gang in the popular film The Warriors became a real band.

While holding down full-time jobs, The Baseball Boys toured the UK, tightening up their act and honing their craft. A local recording studio, Scarf Studios allowed the band to make their demos on a shoestring budget. Their hard work paid off when they were introduced to an American management company. Along with advising a name change, they helped get the band a record deal. In 1984, The Outfield signed with CBS Columbia and began working on their first album, Play Deep.

Play Deep was well received in the United States, eventually becoming a multi-platinum selling album, with the single “Your Love” reaching No. 6 in the billboard charts. The Outfield began touring with bands including: The Hooters; Nightranger; Howard Jones; Asia; Starship; Mike and the Mechanics, and Journey. The Outfield toured extensively through the US and South America headlining their own shows on the club, festival and theatre circuit.

After the success of the first album, Tony and John went on to record many more albums with various drummers. The two were great friends and wrote and recorded together until John died of liver cancer in 2014 at the age of 60. After John’s death, Tony took a break from music. Later, he discovered that his wife Carol had a talent for writing lyrics and telling a story. Together with his ability to form song structure and melody arrangements, they began creating songs together. The result was Tony’s first solo album, Out of the Darkness on Madison Records, which takes on the spirit of The Outfield, while letting Tony’s own style shine through. On the album, Tony played all of the instruments, as well as produced and recorded everything on his own. Mixed by Tanner Hendon and Wyatt Oates of Madison Studios. three singles were released, Into The Light, Here And Now, I’ll Still Be Here, to high critical success from industry and fans. At the time of his death, Tony had been working on a new EP, set to be released on Madison Records in the Spring of 2021.
