Lilli Lewis has been playing the piano since she was three years old, and composing music for just as long. Raised on a dirt road outside of Athens, GA, the award-winning classical pianist and soprano now pursues a subtler muse and her unexpected journey has yielded a world of insight matched with “innovative, soulful music that will never go out of style.” mp3.com
Lilli’s early immersion in classical music is now met with blues, folk and soul traditions that conjure rich echoes of Odetta and Roberta Flack. She has self-produced four LPs since 2003, each capturing a unique snapshot of the American musical terrain, ever revealing the heart of a truthful sojourner.
“Out From Yonder” won runner-up for Best Folk/World Album in the 2009 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards, and rendered Lilli a regional finalist for the acclaimed Mountain Stage Newsong Competition.
Inspired by the landscapes of Shambhala Mountain Center in Red Feather Lakes, CO, the collection reveals stirring melodies mingling with snaps, claps, drums, Hindu mantra and Tuvan throat singing. In August 2008, original selections from “Out From Yonder” rendered Lilli a regional finalist for the acclaimed Mountain Stage Newsong Competition.
Known to audiences from Seattle to Paris, Lilli has been moving audiences with her original music since 2002. With just her voice Lilli weaves a one woman expedition through universal themes like beauty, peace, self-declaration and without a doubt, love.
