The Drifters have sold in excess of 214 million singles and 114 million albums across the world and are also one of the longest serving bands in history. Since 1953, more than 60 vocalists have performed as part of the group, including icons such as Clyde McPhatter, Ben E King, Rudy Lewis and Johnny Moore.
In the mid-late 1970′s, a talented young singer named Ray Lewis joined one of the world's biggest bands, The Drifters. The existing lead singer, Johnny Moore, was leaving the band, and the group's management, the Treadwell family, decided that Ray was the ideal person to replace him.
Ray was born in Los Angeles, and grew up singing in church. One of his first jobs as lead singer was to re-record all of the original Drifters' hits, so the public would recognise him as the voice of The Drifters. He performed alongside the late Bill Fredericks and Johnny Moore as well as Ben E King and went on to become one of the longest serving members of the band, finally leaving in the late 1980′s to pursue a solo career.
Since then he has performed around the world as an artist in his own right. Ray settled in the UK 20 years ago, and is still in high demand, touring throughout the year and performing Drifters' hits with the group he has put together, Still Driftin'.
