Huey Lewis (Hugh Anthony Cregg III, born July 5, 1950) is an American musician, songwriter and occasional actor.

Lewis sings lead and plays harmonica for his band Huey Lewis and the News, in addition to writing or co-writing many of the band's songs. The band is perhaps best known for their third album Sports and their contribution to the soundtrack of the 1985 feature film Back to the Future. Lewis previously played with the band Clover from 1972 to 1979.
