After years of studying at The Guitar Study Center in NYC and as a private student of world renowned guitarist Chuck Wayne, Lew Doty enjoyed 10 years of performing his original music in clubs and colleges in the NYC metro area. In the early ‘70s, marriage and a family took precedence and Lew hung up his guitar, his life taking him in a completely different direction. In 1997 Lew was introduced to the New Thought movement, and suddenly music and lyrics sprang up within him as his spirit was ignited, and he could no longer ignore the creative urge. Within a very short time, Lew became a well-known name among New Thought churches in the greater Philadelphia area, and he began to see this new career as a music ministry.

After great encouragement from his fans, Lew was blessed to record two CDs in the last four years, with plans for more to come. Lew continues to share his music at church services, concerts, workshops, and at any and all sacred ceremonies.

Lew Doty, although influenced over the years by many artists, has developed a style that is all his own. His lyrics are filled with spiritual principles, his voice ranges from angelic and tender to smoky and hard-driving.

The songs he writes are often deeply contemplative, but easily transition to outrageously joyful and sometimes even humorous in their style. But the one continuous thread throughout Lew’s music is its intention.

In every song he writes and in every performance he gives, Lew conveys his message of love, acceptance, allowing, peace and connectedness.

As one of his fans told him, “Listening to you is better than going to church.” You can’t help but hear God in Lew Doty’s music.  


Spirituality Guidance Channel
The premiere online multimedia resource for anyone on a spiritual path.

"Spirituality Guidance is the art of leading individuals to observe, collate and evaluate the facts. It frees the individual from judgment and allows your spirit to truly be free. By utilizing facts and not opinions, an individual can become one with the desires of their heart. The ultimate goal is to actualize these desires through prayer, meditation and service." ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Our mission here is to provide you with as many tools and teachers as possible to not only discover your Oneness with the Divine, but to maintain an ongoing relationship with the Creator of the entire omniverse.
Quotes By Dr. Dean

Have you heard the call?

Have you heard the call? Have you heard the voice as it whispers in the wind? Have you felt the stirring in your soul that has unsettled your spirit? Are you longing for more than what you have lived? The call is soft and gentle and awakens your spirit to the beauty of life with a persistence and desire that cannot be ignored. It is the ultimate blessing that heals you, moves you and makes you feel complete. Heed the call of the Divine to express your spirit according to the grand design. Blessings will abound, your smile will be profound and your life will astound all of creation. Rest in the peace of the Lord. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A Profound Experience

The humbling of the Spirit of God is a profound experience. It subtly lets us know that no matter what befalls us, things will be alright. God honors us with His presence and we honor Him by heeding His call. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Operating Out Of Love

When we choose to operate out of love we bless everyone around us and ourselves with the peace and joy we all deserve. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Lew Doty's CD Wind And Water

Wind And Water


Wind and Water is a collection of some of Lew’s most requested songs presented in a mature style, while offering everything his fans have come to expect and love from Lew, his deep spiritual connection, his principle-based lyrics and beautiful melodies, and his unique voice conveying everything he feels so deeply.
Lew Doty's CD One



One is a mix of pop, folk and rock with only one emphasis – We are one and God is all there is. The music is inspired, the lyrics filled with principle, and Lew’s sometimes smoky, sometimes angelic voice draws the listener ever closer to Source.


“Lew Doty has produced a wonderful collection of twelve songs about faith in God and trusting the divine in yourself. The divine takes many forms on this CD (from a song based on the Lord’s prayer to a number about Buddhism), but always offers acceptance, guidance and joy. This exceptionally well-produced CD features Doty’s deep, smooth, full voice, and his own original work. In a straight-ahead folk/rock style, the songs range from very upbeat tunes to ballads; they all rely heavily on acoustic guitar and percussion. Doty’s lyrics range from profound to affirming, and are bound to inspire.” – Beth Adelman, Science of Mind Magazine, April 2005.

“I've had the pleasure of meeting and listening to Lew over several years. I'm hoping to get to see him this coming Sunday! His personality and his music is delightful. His voice, music and message can be listened to with total enjoyment. Thanks, Lew!” -- Ron Plog, Harmony, NJ

“Doty sings to God with a heart on fire.” – J. Riley, Philadelphia Society for Art, Literature and Music (PSALM), Philadelphia, PA

“Meeting Lew and his music and being with him was one of the highlights of our year. We will work together as Spirit calls. I can’t wait for the new CD.” – Alan Cohen, author, workshop presenter, Hawaii

“There are artists who have the ability to make your soul smile. Lew Doty is one of those artists. The depth of his heart-felt expression inspires and nourishes a hungry spirit. ONE will enrich anyone who gives a listen.” -- Rev. Rhetta Morgan, Philadelphia, PA
