Alan Stevens Hewitt | Musician, Composer, Orchestrator, Producer

Alan Stevens Hewitt (aka ASH) is a NYC-based musician, composer, orchestrator, and producer.

Originally from Philly, the son of a professional oboist, ASH cut his teenage teeth recording for Ruffhouse/Columbia Records at Studio 4, and in his 20’s as member of alt-folk band The Low Road (Passenger/Caroline Records), touring with Los Lobos, Barenaked Ladies, and label-mates Ben Folds Five.

He moved to NYC in the late 90’s to study with Robert Cuckson and Carl Schachter at Mannes College of Music/The New School, where he received his BM in composition.
He is the co-creator (along with Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer and Tim Maner) of the rock opera LIZZIE, and is the recipient of three 2014 Portland Area Musical Theatre Awards (PAMTA) for his work on LIZZIE—Outstanding Score, Outstanding Song (“House of Borden”), and Outstanding Orchestrations. ASH also played on and served as recording producer of the LIZZIE studio album (Broadway Records).

As a performing musician (Bass, electric, upright, keyboard), credits include Broadway’s FUN HOME (also 1st Natl. Tour), MATILDA, FINDING NEVERLAND, Sting’s THE LAST SHIP, ROCKY, LYSISTRATA JONES, Green Day’s AMERICAN IDIOT, SPRING AWAKENING (also 1st Natl. Tour), Off-Bway’s BROOKLYNITE, CLOSER THAN EVER, RENT, tours in the U.S. and abroad, numerous cabarets, concerts, readings and workshops, and recordings as player, composer, arranger, and producer.

His first score for theatre was for a production of Bertolt Brecht’s Baal that the NYTimes thought was awful. He lives in the Hudson Valley and likes to ride his motorcycle and longboard.
