lily 2Using a multicultural childhood to infuse her music with an amalgam of sounds and instruments, Lily delivers a fresh and unique sound entirely her own. Her debut album, “I’m Leaving,” details themes about the tribulations of life as a young adult. The title song is a soulful classic nod that speaks on the timeless strength of walking away. “The sonic atmosphere stays in its lane of classic R&B but offers chimes of jazz, funky grooves and era-based synths which are equally drenched in soul and electronics,” proclaimed Girl Underground Music.

Born in the Philippines, Lily was raised in New York and is now based in Atlanta, Georgia. She is known through the live-streaming platform Twitch. However, the independent musician and producer originally emerged from the medical field. Holding a degree in neurobiology, physiology and behavior upon graduating University of California-Davis, Lily instead decided to feed her creativity and began online streaming performances in 2017. 

Other upcoming LIVE Drive-in concerts from the Alys Stephens Center this fall include Young Concert Artist classical bassist Xavier Foley on Nov. 18 and Eric Essix and Holiday Soul on Dec. 13.
