Classically-trained powerhouse singer-composer from New Orleans known as the "Folk Rock Diva".
When describing songwriter Lilli Lewis, we’re going to rely on Rolling Stone’s recent review of her appearance at AmericanFest, “Among many highlights was New Orleanian singer-pianist Lewis’s almost hymn-like reading of Radiohead’s “Creep” for anyone who’s ever felt like they didn’t belong. But at least for the night, in that moment, everyone did.” Grateful Web says of her recent album, Americana, “it demonstrates a caliber of genius. She launches songs gently, sweetly and then soars effortlessly. When Lewis hits the high notes, she personifies a contemporary Jessye Norman, if folk-rock had been her genre.”
