"Most slept on black folk singer. I listen to her when I want to be high on my soul."
- Lilli Lewis Listener
Lilli Lewis grew up on a dirt road outside of Athens, GA where she gave her first performance on an "air piano" to a much befuddled family audience at the age of 3.
Such enigmatic beginnings has since yeilded 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.
"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.
In recent years Lilli has called many places home including Atlanta, GA, Boston, MA, Red Feather Lakes, CO and Hammond, LA.
She is a seeker, a finder, an activist, a recluse, and a questioner, whose favorite things are laughter and the catching of songs.
