ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"With a sultry voice as smooth as melted butter, Lilli Lewis croons a lush blend of jazz and R&B sensibilities, backed by utterly masterful instrumentation. Sometimes melancholy and always deeply mature, the music...will move you on multiple levels."

Ampcast.com

Lewis originally hails from the eclectic town of Athens, Georgia where she studied classical piano and vocal performance. An "innovative, soulful" singer and composer, Lewis writes with elegant poise in a style where Gabriel Fauré meets Pharoah Sanders. As she sings, her versatile voice shows itself in one moment a pure and longing stratospheric pianissimo, the next a low and earthy rumble. Lilli dances across her broad vocal and musical range with arresting beauty and ease.

Her band, The Lilli Lewis Project, which features Lewis on piano and vocals, is augmented by award winning clarinetist and composer Todd Brunel who unfailingly presents "tremendous virtuosity and heart" (Eileen Pfeiffer, Boston Globe). A veteran of the Montreal Jazz and Aspen Music Festivals, Brunel plays with breathtaking energy paired with an intimately nuanced lyricism.

"Words don't do justice to the music Lilli Lewis creates- a true dichotomy of sound. Vocals that straddle the spectrum from Patti (as in Tuck &...) to Oleta Adams, and music that combines intricate jazz chords and syncopated rhythms most singers would need a month to master. Lewis is the light at the end of the tunnel ...innovative, soulful music [that] will never go out of style."

Radio Stonewall , mp3.com

"There is a special hush that abounds when the voice of Lilli Lewis hits the air. The classically trained vocalist finds her style of Soul/R&B/Folk & Jazz during her music exposure into a well of rich cultural diversity.

An incredible talent not to be missed!
This CD is a compilation of really interesting and beautifully excecuted songs. One of the wonderful things about the variety of music is that there is something to appeal to every taste. Ms. Lewis knows how to belt out the blues or swoon you into a love song!

Collected Sounds

Cool and different
The first track sounds like it belongs in a Broadway play. Maybe it's the horns. It's very interesting. It reminds me a tad of Sting's "Dream of the Blue Turtles".

The rest of the CD takes on different genres with each song. You'll hear blues, jazz, and folk along with your musical theatre and Lilli Lewis does them all with soul.

The songwriting is complex and unique. Lewis has a great smooth jazzy voice and the musicianship is outstanding. It's transcending. I feel like I've been transported. I am not sure to where, but I like it.
