Bio

Lili Alaska is an Australian singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer.

Lili Alaska was born in the French Alps in 2004. She grew up in New Zealand and Australia before moving to Colorado, USA in 2014 where she attended her first open mic at 10 years old. The local Americana scene became a source of inspiration and developed her influences alongside pop and rock music.

From 2016, she spent a year on the road between New York City and Alaska with her nomadic family and traveled to Nashville. In 2017, she moved back to Australia.

Based in Sydney, Lili Alaska is regularly performing on local stages with Peter Longfield and rock band Fridge and produces her own records while still attending high school. She is developing her own sound and original identity, based on intricate layering of synths, guitar riffs and vocals which accentuate her profound and meaningful lyrics.

Her first single 'Wasteland' and her first EP 'Little Devil' were released in 2020 at just 15 years old. They received a great reception on community radios.

In August 2020, Lili Alaska was selected by the Australian Independent Record Labels Association for the 2020 Women in Music. Her single 'Leaving the Mind Behind' came out on September 2020 and was featured single of the week by AIR.

Lili Alaska released 'L'amour par la fenêtre' on January 2021, a pop-rock ode to Love adapted from French poet Arthur Rimbaud's 'Phrases' from cult collection 'Illuminations'. She performed the song at the MCA for the Night of Ideas 2021 and ABC Radio National.

I'm always going to be drawn to woozy organ ballads like this one. Feels like a slow dance underwater.
