Oral History Information
Julie Lewis has been surrounded by music her entire life, and knows first-hand the power it has on those who experience it. As a child she sang in choirs and played the cello, and can recall the happiness on the faces of those around her. As a nurse she often sang to those she cared for and witnessed the healing and comforting powers that music can provide. After meeting her husband Don, she dedicated herself to not only managing his career but using their skills to bring people together who could benefit from his musical talents. Julie attended her first NAMM Show in Chicago in 1978 and noticed the closeness of the electronic musical instrument makers and players. Over the years she not only joined that passionate group of people but she has helped grow it and keep it a close knit family.
