Biography

The troubled son of a hairdresser and a “teacher who lived many lives” (semi-pro football, massage therapy, film-maker and other things he’ll tell you about when you’re older), Mr Lewis Jr was born in the Dominican Republic and spent his formative years in Florida. Not in a happening spot like Miami, though. If you think that’s strange, you don’t know the half of it. And neither does Mr Lewis Jr, although he’s trying to remember; trying to piece the sepia-toned scenes together along with a debut album, Forget, that’s all about letting go. Or is it? Like an art-house double feature that leaves you wondering what the hell just happened in the best way possible, Forget tells a spellbinding story without spelling everything out. twinshadow.net facebook.com/pages/Twin-Shadow/94922660679 twitter.com/thetwinshadow
