Bio

Lili Alaska is an Australian singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist musician 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 just 10 years old. The local scene, notably Americana, became a source of inspiration and developed her influences alongside indie, alternative, dream pop, rock, and folk music. Since then, she has been part of many musical productions and high school rock bands.

From 2016, she spent a year on the road between New York City and Alaska with her nomadic family and traveled to Nashville and fell in love with the music culture of the iconic city. In 2017, she moved back home to Australia.

Currently based in Sydney, Lili Alaska is performing on local stages. She is also a recording artist. Her first single 'Wasteland' was released on May 25th 2020 and her first EP
'Little Devil' on June 26th 2020 at just 15 years old. They received a great reception and are air played on radios, including FBI, 2SER, Quiet Fire, RTRFM and many other well loved community radios.

In August 2020, Lili Alaska was selected by the Australian Independent Record Labels Association for the 2020 Women in Music.

Her new single 'Leaving the Mind Behind' came out on September 29, 2020 and was featured single of the week by AIR.

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