“Her adept jazz sensibility (as well as her variegated alto voice) is beautifully displayed … Lewis is refreshingly fearless, committed and transparent in her approach and taste; her consummate vocal skill shines throughout” - Lesley Mitchell-Clarke, The WholeNote – CD Review for “Far & Near”

“Between Lewis’ always strong singing, expert choice of material, and a small group that delivers big, the thrill in this case comes entirely from the music.” -Mark Rheaume, CBC’s NEW MUSIC PICKS on CBC Fresh Air
