Robert “Bubby” Lewis definitely holds his own spot among the top-tier of young pro bassists playing today. The 34-year-old musician and composer, who’s been belting out bass lines since he was 14, got his start performing at his father’s church in Flint, Michigan. From these humble beginnings, he’s gone on to make a name for himself in the hip-hop, R&B and gospel scenes, working with a who’s who of popular artists including Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco, Warren G, Dr. Dre, Jhené Aiko, Kim Burrell, The Clarke Sisters and Stevie Wonder. A big fan of comics and anime, he’s also had the pleasure of composing for companies like Marvel Entertainment and FUNimation. Last year, he released his second album, Hero Dynasty, through Ropeadope Records.
FBPO’s Jon Liebman caught up with Lewis at this year’s Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California for a spirited discussion covering his new album, frequent touring of Japan and the importance of being in the moment while playing.
