WHAT'S THE STORY MORNING GLORY?
The modern era of music has given way to enigmas and artists of all shapes and forms who break the norm of what we have come to expect as far as what an artist truly is. The Patrick Lew Band is one such entity that epitomises the essence of the modern era. A multi-talented Sino-Japanese rock band lead by Patrick Lew, and his alter ego sister Madeline Lew. Patrick was born in San Francisco, CA. The Band is making music that is thoughtful, conscious and driven by a desire to motivate, inspire, comfort and spread love and joy to all those that hear it.
Born to a Chinese father and a Japanese mother of mixed descent, his journey in music really began in 2001 while he was still in high school and eventually playing in various bands. He later attended California State University East Bay in Hayward, CA, and graduated with a B.A in Philosophy and minored in Music Composition. After the creation of his fictional twin sister Madeline Lew through special effects and Photoshop Patrick then transitioned into making his own music with the Patrick Lew Band. It was during this period of evolution that the Band’s creativity and undeniable talent began to shine through. They ultimately developed a style of making music that is transparent, daring, full of hope and reflective of their experiences. The band’s goal is to become a voice of the Asian-American community and shed light to an underrepresented minority in the American music industry. The band is focused on becoming a worldwide phenomenon and touching as many lives as possible regardless of race, age, religion and sexual orientation. The Band’s music is an encapsulation of their thoughts and ambitions, turning pain into purpose and lessons into studio sessions.

I was born a very awesome yet weird Japanese and Chinese/Taiwanese mixed girl. Lived in Hong Kong with my cousins for a long while. Came back to the Bay Area in 2015 and joined my brother's band Patrick Lew Band as a member. Thanks mom! Got inducted into the Hall of Fame with me and my brother's band PLB in 2019 at Cal State East Bay. And here I am now. Maddie's got your back! Lol.
