Michelle Lewis is a fierce New Yorker now transplanted to 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 Emmy-nominated songwriter of 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.” And just this past May, she won an Emmy for writing an all-musical episode of “The Loud House.”
In 2014, Michelle Lewis co-founded the non-profit creators’ rights advocacy group, 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, as Executive Director of 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.
