Description

"Most slept on black folk singer. I listen to her when I want to be high on my soul."- Lilli Lewis ListenerFolk-Jazz singer Lilli Lewis grew up on a dirt road outside of Athens, GA where she has been writing music since the age of three. She is an award-winning singer/songwriter, a favorite among contemporary women's solo a cappella, a composer, an opera singer, classical pianist, and a self-proclaimed rocker wannabe, in no particular order of importance.As a solo artist Lilli has released five recordings, among which the first solo a cappella album, "Out From Yonder" won regional finalist for the acclaimed Mountain Stage Newsong Competition and runner up for "Best World/Folk Album" for the 2009 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards, and a main stage performer at SOJAM A Cappella Music Festival in 2009. "The sound is like a female Bobby McFerrin, but with lyrics one might expect from a group like Sweet Honey In The Rock." Jonathan Minkoff, rarb.org.Lilli resides in Hammond, LA where she is currently completing a collection of Spirituals entitled "The Promised Land." She is a seeker, a finder, an activist, a recluse, and a questioner, whose favorite things are laughter and the catching of songs.
