Louisiana Red Hot Records’ award-winning singer/songwriter Lilli Lewis is known for her powerful vocals and progressive message. The “folk-rock diva” is a sought after featured performer on mainstages across the United States and abroad.

A prolific writer, composer, pianist, and producer, Lilli has appeared as both artist and sideman with elites like Dr. John, Kirk Joseph’s Backyard Groov

e, Little Freddie King, Dash Rip Rock, Gina Forsyth, Sharon Martin, Betty Shirley, and Dr. James Walsh to mention a few.

Lewis and her band have been Regional Finalists for the Mountain Stage New Song Competition as well as Hard Rock Rising Global Band Battle. Notable festival appearances include the National Black Arts Festival, Atlanta’s Music Midtown, the Southern Womyn’s Music Festival, and various Pride festivals throughout the US.

The daughter of a southern minister and a Chicago reared civil rights activist, her bent towards social justice is reflected in her music and stage show. In keeping with the groundbreaking and pioneering spirit, Lewis is the only female artist on the Louisiana Red Hot Records emerging artist roster alongside Corey Henry, Colin Lake, and Jonathon Boogie Long. Louisiana Red Hot was OffBeat Magazine’s 2015 Record Label of the Year and is known for launching and supporting the careers of southern favorites such as Trombone Shorty, Hunter Hayes, and Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, among others.

Her voice and showmanship have been described as “Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s virtuoso commitment to her instrument and Odetta’s vocal power, creating a show that is a force of nature.” Jamie Anderson, indie-music.com cited…“Makes you want to put your hands in the air, shout hallelujah and shake your booty for the rest of the night…enough energy to power a large city,” with Radio Stonewall stating… “Lewis is the light at the end of the tunnel…”
