Inventioning bridges the world of Prog-rock and jazz with a variety of styles and influences. The original core of the band was the convergence of legendary artists Jon Anderson and Jean Luc Ponty along with producer/session guitarist Michael Lewis who was the connection that brought the two together.
Jon and Jean Luc went on to tour as the Anderson-Ponty band from 2014 to 2016. Michael has continued to develop the music of Inventioning. In recent years, Jon Anderson has been busy with ARW, which opened the door for powerhouse vocalist Bridgette Lewis to step into the limelight, which was a ... natural fit since she was the original demo singer on all of the music Michael produced for the band.
Michael is an in-demand producer/engineer and session musician who also maintains a busy touring schedule with a regional act known as One Street Over, but is still working on finishing works for Inventioning, including one song which will feature both Jon Anderson and Jean Luc Ponty along with Oliver Wakeman (son of Rick Wakeman.)
The current line up of INV players have been working with the producer/co-founder, Michael Lewis, for several years on all the original recordings for the project. A pair of Nashville studio pros are featured -- Brian Fullen is on drums and percussion and Adam Nitti on bass. Oliver Wakeman has now come on board to add keyboard parts. Michael is the producer, guitarist, background vocalist and second keyboardist. Michael has been in touch with a number of other major name musicians whom he plans to use on this project, including members of the Anderson-Ponty band.
Alison Henderson of Progarchy.com writes: "With or without Jon Anderson or Jean-Luc Ponty, it sounds as though Inventioning could be one of the next big Prog happenings."
