“Gumbo is the star of Christmas in New Orleans, if you ask me and most other Louisiananians. Every Christmas morning, my grandma would wake up at 6 AM and make an army-sized pot of gumbo so big she needed a stepping stool to stir! The preparation started days before Christmas. This was a labor of love - extended family and neighbors filled every square foot of my grandparent’s home.
Gumbo brought us together. It fed our souls and shaped how I view the holidays. My grandma passed away this fall - a month before recording [Gumbo Christmas], so this is a memory and tradition that I want to keep alive. It's a feeling that I want to share with the world and help people celebrate no matter where they live or their circumstances.
Gumbo Christmas is my labor of love to my culture and her legacy. But it’s not just about me. Gumbo brings lots of families together for the holidays and I want them to enjoy Gumbo Christmas with a lazy two-step and a smile.”

“It’s all about growing up and finally learning the lightness of letting things go…”, says Lewis. “I have to say, ‘All Is Forgiven’ often enough to really mean it. Kinda my own personal heart sutra.”
“All Is Forgiven” is the perfect song for anyone struggling to let go of the past. It is a reminder that we are all human, have all held on to what doesn’t serve us - and we can all learn to let go, heal and move forward.
Visit our Link In Bio to stream “All Is Forgiven” on all digital platforms. The album, ‘All Is Forgiven’ is available for pre-order on righteousbabe.com and will be released on 12/1/2023.

“You don’t write an album called ‘All is Forgiven’ unless you have plenty to forgive.”
Lilli Lewis states songs on 'All Is Forgiven' wrote themselves without her consent, and the album supports this. It represents the most extraverted and optimistic work she has released to date.

"I sing "Creep" because it feels like the rub between how I often feel in this world and my awareness of the indestructible nature of life's longing for itself. I sing it for everyone who has ever carried with them a sense of not belonging, and the infinite beauty they brought into the world with them by virtue of simply being singular. I sing it for the miracle of life in the context of so much disregard, despair, and the improbable vulnerability of the whole shebang.
My biggest hope in offering up these recordings, is that in your quiet spaces, they can put you in touch with the primal essence that illuminates the miracle in you. That's asking a lot, I know, so at the very least, I just hope you like them." - Lilli Lewis
