Ricky Lewis

Ricky Lewis is a musician and an actor, and lives in Bushwick.  He grew up in Westbrook, Connecticut, a very small town that would triple in population during the summer, where he went to public school as one of just 54 students in his grade.  Ricky moved to New York City at 19 and studied acting at William Esper Studio, where Mary-Kate Olsen had previously gone.  He seems to be more focused on his music now, of which he says, “The songs are extensions of me, like my deranged little children.”  People, film, collaboration, poetry, and his dog Agnes inspire him.  The romance of his music resonates in his style, and the more I see what he wears, the more I see the actor in him, embodying different personas with different looks—the mark of a bona fide dandy.
