DIY Spotlight: Payson Lewis

Music has been a part of Payson Lewis’ life for as long as he can remember. Early on, he followed his older brother and joined a choir. He also taught himself piano and pursued music as a Music Industry major at USC. While in school, he joined the SoCal VoCals, a prestigious collegiate a cappella group, which helped him develop his craft as a singer.

After college, Lewis appeared on NBC’s The Sing Off. His time on that show propelled his career and brought him into the world of acting. His television credits include How I Met Your Mother, Revenge, People vs. OJ Simpson, Rules of Engagement and Victorious. He also spent time doing live theater with Rumer Willis, Evan Rachel Wood and Janel Parrish.

Lewis’ relationship with his fans earned him such a strong following that he launched a YouTube channel, quickly attracting thousands of subscribers.

The relationships he built during his acting gigs led to a duet with Rumer Willis, a cover of Taylor Swift’s “Out of the Woods,” which gained recognition by notable press outlets including Perez Hilton and Mashable.

The recent release of his tracks, “Bad Influence,” “When Love Was Young” and “Can’t Go Back,” have also garnered praise by publications like Hollywood Life, Celebmix, The Young Folks, Art Nois and more.

Payson Lewis is gearing up for the release of his debut EP this fall. “My songs and the reason behind them is my legacy. I feel like my music is the real expression of my soul,” he explains.
