This week in the ProMedia Student Spotlight we have, part Irish, part Welsh, English born singer-songwriter Lily Lambert. Lily considers her very original take on Folk Rock/ Alt Country having the same non-conformist attitude as artist like Bjork and Enya.
With her firm grasp of song craft and her ability to shift from the airy delicate to the ethereally angelic and still keep it grounded in reality, Lily’s music definitely reflects a rich musical history.
After graduating from Law School [with Honors of course] our overachieving heroine went directly to New York City. If you can make it there you can make it anywhere. That’s exactly what Lily did. She performed in a number of musicals and Off-Broadway productions. It was in all those backstage areas and rehearsal rooms that Lily found the time to write her first album, Life Of Lily. In November 2014 Lily released her latest record titled So Far . She received a nomination for Best Folk Artist, Album and Song of 2014 from The IMEA Awards. In addition So Far won the Akademia Award for Best Singer Songwriter Album in 2015 and the Global Music Award 2015 Bronze medal also for 2015.
