Lewis has won multiply awards including the Hampshire National Singing Competition in 2013, earning a prize of UK£6,000.[3] In 2014, she won second place behind Christina Gansch at the Kathleen Ferrier Awards.[4] The Times described Lewis as "a warm, capacious soprano, its strength powerfully contained and focused throughout its wide register. And her wonderfully serene and assured stage presence reaches out to her audience,"[5]

As of 2015, Lewis is currently a guest artist for the Henley Symphony Orchestra.[6]
