General manager | Louisiana Red Hot Records
Lilli Lewis’s mesmerizing solo set at New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival’s 50th Anniversary set her apart as one of New Orleans’ rising stars. Lewis celebrates folk music from the African-American tradition, drawing inspiration from all of its forms from Odetta to Bill Withers. Said to bear “the power of Aretha with the style of Phoebe Snow,” David Kunian of New Orleans’ OffBeat Magazine says of her 2018 national debut The Henderson Sessions, “Lilli has a voice with depth and inspiration that takes the best of jazz, folk, and pop and simply soars.” Her latest recording We Belong is the debut release with her ensemble LLP (The Lilli Lewis Project), with special guest appearances from New Orleans legends Kirk Joseph, Dr. Michael White, and Glen David Andrews. When not recording or performing, Lilli serves as the general manager and A&R head for Louisiana Red Hot Records, an independent label that has represented the best of Louisiana Music, past and future, for over 23 years.
