Michelle Lewis is a fierce New Yorker now based in Los Angeles, where she is a singer, songwriter, composer, and music creators’ rights advocate.
From her early career as a recording artist signed to Irving Azoff’s Giant Records, to her first radio hit, Cher’s “A Different Kind of Love Song” in 2002, to the 2014 worldwide #1 single “Wings” by the British girl group Little Mix, Ms. Lewis brings authenticity, musicality and heart to a diverse array of music projects.
For the last decade, Ms. Lewis has branched out into the world of songwriting for animated television, most notably as a Peabody Award-winning composer of all original music for Disney Jr’s hit show, Doc McStuffins and as an Emmy-nominated songwriter for the beloved Nickelodeon series Bubble Guppies. She has over a half-dozen TV themes currently airing including Doc McStuffins, The Loud House, Muppet Babies, The Harvey Street Kids, Mutt and Stuff and DC Super Hero Girls.
In 2014, Michelle Lewis co-founded the non-profit, Songwriters of North America (SONA) in response to the ever-increasing complexities and disparities in digital royalties paid to songwriters and composers. And most recently - through her roles on the ASCAP Board’s Legislative Committee, representing SONA and as one of the leaders of the #MusicArmy of songwriters, artists, composers and producers - Michelle was an instrumental force in the historic passage of the Music Modernization Act, which was signed into law in October of 2018.
