Film, Television and Concert Composer.
Paul's TV and film music has encompassed drama of all types: romantic, horror, costume and comedy, as well as children's series, wildlife, features, animation and commercials.
He delights in composing in every genre for every budget from solo instruments and small ensemble, "straight" or jazz, to full orchestral, covering every facet of dramatic mood.
His concert works are tonal and audience-friendly, and show off the instruments they are written for to their best advantage without making impractical demands on the players. Musicians requently comment on how well-written for their instruments his music is: flautists assume he plays the flute and harpists assume he plays the harp for instance - in fact he can play neither! His works are frequently happy or romantic and are often inspired by people or places dear to him.
Paul is an enthusiastic conductor of his own music and is delighted to address audiences at concerts, believing that the public should be encouraged to feel a connection to the music and to the musicians on the platform.
"We never expected to understand a new piece of music at first hearing, let alone ENJOY it!" is a typical audience reaction to a new Paul Lewis work.
Paul is happy to consider any commission and is very approachable. He has never employed an agent as he enjoys talking to people and making his own decisions.
