Half-Irish, half-English 'Folkalist' voyaging on the tender terrain of vocal purity: her music haunts and heals. Described by Irish Radio International as a maker of “delicious music: a massage of the heart, a whisper to the soul”, Lewis works with an uncomplicated loveliness of sound. She has been compared to the likes of Lisa Hannigan, Ane Brun, and Joni Mitchell. Her first recording, the independently released EP 'Catch Me' heard on Johnny Coppin’s BBC Radio 2 Folk show contains five songs from her Vocal Voyages collection inspired by a year of world travel. Invisible Filter described it as “utterly brilliant”. The new single “WISE OWL” is the first single from her debut album 'Folkalism'.

I love the sense of community that has built up around here over the past 10 years or so. My neighbours are my friends, I love that. I love Ladywell fields. In the summer I’m the one dancing and singing in the stillness of the trees working on new material. I love the old elm trees and Brockley cemetery. I love cycling down Ivy Road at night when there has been a flood, it feels dangerous and wild. I love the cheeky foxes. I love the stone circle, Arlo & Moe and Browns. And most of all I love the creative community that is bursting through the fabric of SE4. I’ve travelled so much with my work, it is an absolute pleasure to be able to bring it home.
