Lewis Furey

1949 -

Origin: Canada

Main instrument: Piano

Genre: Pop

Born Lewis Greenblatt on June 7, 1949, in Montréal, composer, singer, pianist and actor Lewis Furey was a gifted young musician, mastering the violin early on in his life, and performing with the Montréal Symphony Orchestra by age 11. He later pursued studies at the Conservatoire de musique du Québec à Montréal and at NYC's prestigious Juilliard School. As a singer, he released three cult albums in the late 1970s, blending orchestrated glam infused pop songs with well-crafted English lyrics. A long-awaited reissue in 2010 helped reach a whole new set of fans. In the 1980s, he found his niche in film score composition, namely for Québec filmmaker Gilles Carles, and devoted much of his subsequent career to producing award-winning material for his wife, actress/singer Carole Laure.
