"'TV Screens and Videos' is drenched in lush, sparkling guitars as the thumping bass carries a danceable groove. Virginia's smart vocals are on a whole different level as they posses evident authenticity and emotion. They're simple yet packed with punch and feeling. Lyrically, it's cheeky and smart as hell... Although the well-produced track is shimmery and ethereal, it's also upbeat and will instantly make you want to dance." - Kirsten Spruch, Baeble Music

BIO

“Bluish purple songs with silver-gold shimmers” – is what Brooklyn-based artist Lily Virginia conveys with Play Me Twice, her upcoming audiovisual album. This accomplished singer-songwriter blends honest lyrics and American folk/rock styles with subtle world grooves; sometimes singing in a range from high and ethereal to low and sensual but always singing authentically, present to her audience.
 
The full album, due out in Fall 2016, is an ode to the poetry of life; a landscape of confessional lyrics and shimmering sounds. Virginia invites listeners to walk into this world with her as she releases Play Me Twice in a series of music videos shot live at producer Alessio Romano's Studio 42. 

Following the release of her self-titled debut EP in 2014, Lily Virginia has explored her artistic vulnerability with unapologetic force for live audiences throughout the U.S. Playing at venues including NYC's BAM, Rockwood Music Hall, Highline Ballroom, and beyond in Boston, Philadelphia, California, Austin's SXSW and even Puerto Rico, Ms. Virginia sings out her stories and lays herself bare.

PRESS REVIEWS





 

“TV Screens & Videos” rides on a suave guitar line and commanding vocal presence,with a slight twangy rockabilly sound aligning with an anthemic vocal chorus reminiscent of Florence + the Machine and Sharon Van Etten. The mid-section brass provides for a nicely infectious moment as well. It’s an enjoyable track through and through." - Mike Mineo, Obscure Sound

 Any chance I get to collaborate with Lily Virginia, I take it. She is not only one of the most hardworking, dedicated and conscientious people I’ve worked with but she is also a magical talent. I’ve had the absolute honor of presenting her EP release show, showcasing her at Highline Ballroom as well as headlining at BAMcafe to a packed house. She is a unique and powerful force.” - Solonje Burnett-Loucas, NYC Culture Curator, Den Entertainment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


We dug "TV Screens" for its bouncy vibes, impossibly crisp instrumentals, Virginia's impressively reserved delivery. Fans of Local Natives, Hop Along, or Waxahatchee would dig Virginia. - Nick Sessanna, buffaBLOG

Concert Blogger

"With vocal comparisons from Kate Bush and Annie Lenox to Sarah McLachlan and Sara Bareilles, Lily brings her originality and vocal talents to [Love You More]. The video highlights her vocal and musical talents in a visually pleasing studio setting. Tight shots of her and her band mates make it feel personal… You feel like you’re in her living room and you won’t want to leave." - Katrina Hayday, Concert Blogger

 

The Deli

Coupled with the fearless artistry of Kate Bush and the melodic openness of Annie Lennox, Lily Virginia sweeps into our ears... Her [video] 'Yuriko' characterizes an uncompromising spirit moving around psychedelic animations and whirling textures. - Mike Levine, The Deli Magazine

 

 

Delete Bin

"Like a moment in the day when you feel the first drops of spring rain, Lily Virginia’s “Dreamtrain” provides a melancholic backdrop for a new season. This song is gauzy, atmospheric, and gossamer-delicate, but with a quiet strength that makes it a heartfelt reflection on lost love." - Rob Jones, The Delete Bin
