Bio

Lily Louise is a singer/songwriter from the south coast of New South Wales. At just 18, she uniquely articulates her thoughts about life, death, tea, religion, war, and her childhood by the sea into honest, quirky lyrics with a maturity that belies her years. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Joni Mitchell, Lily delivers catchy, often haunting melodies and deceptively simple philosophies by way of her whimsical voice and guitar. Her debut album 'Falling and the Leaves that Followed', recorded and released in late 2011 when she was 15, was named number 1 on the Top Ten EPs of 2011 by online independent music magazine Tomatrax and the track "Below" rated third on Tomatrax top 100 songs of 2011. She has performed the opening for Deborah Conway at the Milton Theatre, played on the youth stage at Cobargo folk festival 2012 and 2013, performed gigs in Paris, supported Pete Murray on his recent Byron Bay sessions tour with her duo project 'Jupiter & the Moon and is part of the graduating class of the Talent Development Project this year. ~~~ 'TIGER' is a brand new demo, recorded by Lily with nothing but Garage Band and an old Casio keyboard. It was inspired by Yann Martel's book 'Life of Pi' and features the harmonies of her sister Grace Amelia. ~~~ ~~~ 'EMPTY HOUSE' is a new song recorded thanks to the Talent Development Project at Sony with in house producers. ~~~ "We will be hearing a lot more of Lily...It's very exciting."

Lily's a real talent. The voice sticks out, the arrangement is very well done and those lyrics are ambitious and evocative.
