James ‘JL’ Lewis

James is a DJ & broadcaster, writer & humanitarian, has founded a charity for children with cancer, as well as for older people & hosts Soulful Experience with JL; he is an all-round decent bloke…

James has always been passionate about music & was part of the early days of Soulstice. His radio show JL Jamz regularly featured big name interviews such as Spyro Gyra, Chaka Khan, Pieces Of A DreamThe TemptationsSounds Of Blackness, a mix unheard of on US radio. In addition he’s enthralled audiences all over the world through both his music & his life story.

At many speaking engagements, audiences are surprised to learn that this dynamic broadcaster/writer lost a child to cancer & is a founder & former CEO of a children’s cancer charity/non-profit organisation that’s helped thousands of children with cancer & their families every year, through a variety of services focused on the quality of life.

In 1992 James Lewis was the subject of a television documentary called ‘Smoothing The Stone’, a phrase Lewis used in his talks to describe the grieving process. In more recent years the charity Action For Elders which James is also heavily involved with, won £50,000 of Lottery funding via TV’s People’s Millions.
