Title track of the forthcoming LP, “All Is Forgiven,” is an effervescent pop rock declaration turned mantra, with the relentless fervor of one who has finally learned the value in the “fake it ‘til you make it” mentality.

In the two years while “All Is Forgiven,” the forthcoming album from Lilli Lewis was being written and produced, Lewis played four sets at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival; produced the Black American Music Summit for Folk Alliance International; played an official showcase at AmericanaFest (where she also met Lucinda Williams at an event Lewis co-organized); and supported her childhood heroes The Indigo Girls on five shows in the midwest and southeast. She also released critically acclaimed versions of “Woodstock'' by Joni Mitchell and “Creep” by Radiohead, and received the 2020-2021 Best Folk/Country/Americana Album Award from OffBeat Magazine, all while touring in her van across all but two of the contiguous 48 states.

“You don’t write an album called ‘All is Forgiven’ unless you have plenty to forgive.”

Lewis admits she loves being on the road, but the new album, her fourth with enigmatic indie producer Mark Bingham, is not so much a tribute to those road-warrior travels, but rather the journey of forgiveness one takes on the inside. Though it had been a standout era in her 20+ year career, the Athens, GA native turned New Orleans Folk Rock Diva says those years of her life had actually felt “not unlike a cliche country song: lost my job, lost my dog, etc. Despite all the magic that was hurling my way, it was a truly difficult time of isolation and sadness for me. I wrote the songs almost in a dreamlike state, and I didn’t find out until later that the songs were there to help me get back up.”
