She has since gone on to travel and record with her own band, Texas Fire.

“Blessed with a powerful, soulful voice described by Chicago Tribune Music Critic, Howard Reich, as “the eighth wonder of the music world,” Ms. Lewis is a mesmerizing entertainer that captivates her audience with her penetrating delivery. She is a featured artist in the 2006 University of Illinois Press book Chicago Blues: Portraits and Stories by scholar David Whiteis. Lewis received a BS from Loyola University in Management and Industrial Psychology and a minor in Computer Science.” – Tom Marker – WXRT Radio, Chicago, IL
In May 2018 Delmark Records LLC purchased Delmark. Julia A. Miller became the CEO & President of the label and Elbio Barilari its artistic Director.
Delmark Records is the oldest continuously operating jazz and blues independent record label in the United States. It was founded by Robert G. Koester in St. Louis, Missouri in 1953, originally under the name “Delmar.” In 1958, Koester and the label relocated to Chicago with the label’s current name: Delmark.
Today, Delmark is thriving. The label is a world force on the blues & jazz music scene with artists like Jimmy Johnson, Bob Stroger, Demetria Taylor, Sharon Lewis, Mike Wheeler, Dave Specter, and recent releases of jazz albums by Geof Bradfield, The Soul Message Band, Volcano Radar with Paquito D’Rivera, Fareed Haque and Goran Ivanovic, Dee Alexander with the Metropolitan Jazz Octet and the Fat Babies.
