Why this name?
Our main songwriters are Kristan KING and Lance LEWMAN. The rest is a mystery....
Do you play live?
We love to play live concerts, coffeehouses, and house concerts/parties- venues where people come to listen. Every live performance is a special moment.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The Internet makes music less of an "industry" and more of a creative and intimate relationship between the artist and the audience. Outside of concerts, it allows for a qualitative environment and community rather than a quantitative lust for charting.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
If it's a label like Rhino or Alligator, yes. If the relationship is worthwile financially, creatively and spiritually, and if it's not intrusive, it's worth considering.
Band History:

Kristan King started writing songs and performing with a band in 1980 when she and her brother Kim King started playing Country music with The Mohave River Band in California. Prior to that, she sang with a blues band out of Raleigh, NC called The Blue Moods. After moving to New York City, she met Lance Lewman; and they began writing together in 1982.

Lance Lewman formed his first band his first year in college at The North Carolina School of the Arts. It was a parody Punk Rock band called Hellecopter. Getting more serious, he formed Eclipse his senior year. After graduating, he moved to New York and met Kristan King.

Kristan and Lance wrote and recorded demos for quite a few years together before releasing their first album calling themselves Rescue. The album was released in 1989 and titled Living In Skin. The couple then moved to Maryland and started playing with Danny Junk. The trio called themselves Nobody's Bizness and played clubs in the Baltimore/Washington area. Crack The Sky's John Palumbo called them a male/female version of The Eagles.

KING LEWMAN began in 2000 when Kristan, Lance and Danny stopped calling their band Nobody's Bizness and, at Danny's insistence, agreed to adapt their last names as the band's name and recorded Paper Train - A Songcycle Volume One on Ruff Records.

In 1999, the three went into the studio. With drum tracks from Michael Collins and ancillary guitar tracks from Kristan's brother, Kim, they made Paper Train and christened the band King Lewman. With an original blend of Alternative, Country, Folk, Blues, Rock, and Pop, Paper Train received a glowing review from Music Monthly magazine and far outsold all expectations.

In September of 2004, King Lewman followed their debut CD with a second release. Full Circle - A Songcycle Volume Two completes the circle, and raises the bar, making King Lewman one of the area's premier original bands. Marv Egolf joined the band on bass and vocals for his first performance with the ensemble at the CD release party held in Clarksville, MD.

In 2009, Stanley Hall joined King Lewman on drums for an outdoor concert held at the Silverdocs International Film Festival held in Silver Spring, MD. Fred WesleyQuartet opened the evening.

The latest CD, Going Somehwere, is available. During the summer of 2007, KING LEWMAN went to Vancouver to work with producer, Spencer Capier, to master many of the tracks. The CD was mixed by Greg Reely, and a CD release party was held at One World Coffeehouse in Columbia, MD.
