"Lilli Lewis, a chanteuse, a pianist with one of the widest hearts and deftest touches in songwriting I have ever heard...uniquley poignant and heartfelt..."
Tom Daley, poet , Cambridge, MA
Lilli Lewis grew up on a dirt road outside of Athens, Georgia. There, in between playing in her father's garden and going on scavenger hunts, Lilli developed a passion for classical piano at the early age of 3, marked by her frequent silent "air" performances (until the family acquired a piano) and a steady flow of compositions that had to be transcribed by her mother's hand.
Largely self-taught, she became an accomplished student of classical piano and vocal performance. Still she found herself just as enthralled by the independent spirit of the town's musical anti-elite, which led her down the path to discovering her truly unique voice.
The "innovative, soulful" Lewis writes with elegant poise, her versatile voice shows itself in one moment a pure and longing stratospheric pianissimo, the next a low and earthy rumble, dancing her across her range with arresting beauty and ease.
"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."
