Chris Lewis

Chris is the thunderous backbeat behind the metal band phear, based out of Mississauga, ON, Canada. Signed to RFL Records in 2018, phear has released two albums (‘Insanitarium’ & ‘The Curse Lives On’) and is currently working on a third for release in 2020. Chris had aspirations to become a drummer after hearing ‘KISS – Alive!’ for the first time when he was 10. Peter Criss was ultimately his most profound influence. Chris finally realized his dream when at 16 his parents bought him his first drumkit. Over the years, Chris learned to play the drums (self-taught) by listening to such bands as Aerosmith, Rush, Van Halen, Iron Maiden, UFO, Thin Lizzy, KING’S X, MR. BIG, and Journey. He lists his all-time favourite drummers as Steve Smith, Pat Torpey, Peter Criss, Neil Peart, & Mike Portnoy.
