Phoenomenous’ New Literary Indie-Pop


Phoenomenous is a brand new virtual band making their debut in 2024. The recording project is the brainchild of songwriter and producer Lewis Popper. The otherwise anonymous musician (Lewis is a pseudonym) works with artists around the world to bring his creations to life.

The mystery surrounding Phoenomenous and Lewis Popper is by design. The enigmatic songwriter and arranger first learned his craft while serving a 5-7 year prison sentence. Now he prefers to keep a low profile and let the music do the talking. This month he dropped his debut single.

“Annabel Lee” is the brand new single from Phoenomenous, released worldwide via all major streaming services on May 2, 2024. The song is the first look at Popper’s forthcoming debut LP Ode to Dead Poets.  The record promises to feature a collection of all original modern musical arrangements of pre-1900 poetry. 

On this debut track from Phoenomenous, Lewis pairs the tragic 19th century literary genius of Edgar Allen Poe with a modern indie-pop bop. On the mic male vocalist delivers a dark poet’s tale of love and loss in a smooth pop tenor. As the track progresses, a low-key acoustic arrangement builds to a powerful pop anthem.
