Lilli Lewis

The Ark 316 S. Main, Ann Arbor

Athens, Georgia, native turned New Orleans folk-rock diva Lilli Lewis is a powerhouse composer and performing artist with “storytelling with transformative empathy and classically trained poise,” says Jewly Hight of NPR. Lilli is a voice for the voiceless on “Americana,” her third full album for Louisiana Red Hot Records, and it’s been lauded by NPR, Rolling Stone, Offbeat magazine and the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “One of the most powerful records of 2021, Lilli Lewis' “Americana” offers up 13 tracks of raw, unfiltered talent… jaw-dropping vocal stylings, sharp lyricism, irresistible hooks and a needed perspective that's often overlooked,” writes Lorie Leibig of The Boot. Since we last saw Lilli at The Ark, she’s appeared at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and other major venues. She’s a star in the making!
