Editing films, videos, and other multimedia by day, and making music under the name Ginger Root by night, Cameron Lew fronts a sound that can be described as: "Aggressive Elevator Soul”. Combining elements from contemporaries like Toro Y Moi, Vulfpeck, Jay Som, and Mocky with the influences of the days of Stax and Philly Soul, Ginger Root offers a fresh take on the ever evolving Bedroom Pop scene.

Steve is best known for his saxy work with electronic/R&B duo Marian Hill. “I’d been like, ‘Hey, could you just, like, improvise a bunch of stuff, record it, and send it to me so I can chop it up?’ He’s mostly involved in the live part of Marian Hill, but he’s also a seriously dope sample guy. People love Steve.” - Jeremy Lloyd of Marian Hill, Rolling Stone interview. He’s toured live with the band, playing festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Firefly, Lightning in a Bottle, Made in America, and Governors Ball, and international gigs from London to Berlin to Istanbul.

Last year Steve released his debut solo EP, Off/On. The project is an exploration of the space between his onstage roar and his obsessive, layered digital composing work. The blend of jazz, electronic and hip-hop explores the computer as instrument, pushing the limits of what it means to be a jazz musician. Imagine this: Kamasi Washington and Snarky Puppy get drunk at a party and record some funky jams together. Then some mad scientist comes along and chops those jams up into little pieces and reimagines them into something new — a mixture of raw, live passion and digital precision, told across immense soundscapes and simple melodies.

Joining Steve on stage are local Philly friends David Balcher on electronic and acoustic drums, Cory Wilson aka FortuneWest on bass, and Steve's trusty laptop on... well, the rest.
