Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Lilli Lewis' national debut LP, The Henderson Sessions, effortlessly straddles multiple musical genres with a series of deeply personal and thoroughly global songs that cut to the emotional core and tap into a powerful social consciousness: a self-portrait everyone can see if they look in the right mirror. Armed with only her piano and a soulful, stirring voice, her inspirational originals, mixed with interpretations of folk rock classics and fresh takes on traditional blues and jazz numbers, reflect a wide range of influences held together by common threads. Strains of Southern Baptist Gospel bleed into civil rights activism; civil rights meld into social justice and equality, and that turns into inner-personal and global peace. Lewis, an award-winning classically trained singer and songwriter, began playing piano at the age of three. A prolific writer, composer, pianist and producer, her songs are a direct result of growing up listening to her father's sermons and southern choirs in rural Georgia churches and learning the northern sensibilities of her civil rights activist mother.
