Having written her debut record America Religious after a lengthy series of trips traversing the backroads of the United States, it comes as no surprise that songwriter Caroline Rose and band mate Jer Coons have been constantly on the move playing venues and house concerts around the country. "The themes in the album reflect that journey," says Paste Magazine, "as each track seems to tackle a new topic and make even the most familiar themes feel fresh." Sirius XM Program Director Ari Fink says, [America Religious] "puts you in the front seat riding shotgun on a very real adventure…" Rose and Coons are proud to have had complete creative control over the record, having played nearly all the instruments, co-producing, mixing and engineering it themselves.
Think Joni Mitchell meets Laura Marling and you’ve got a good idea as to what Lily Mae, a 17-year-old Contemporary Folk singer-songwriter, sounds like.
Music industry legend and president emeritus of Blue Note Records, Bruce Lundvall says, “Lily Mae has a signature voice, writes excellent songs, and will be a future star.”
Lily has worked with Joan Osborne, Livingston Taylor, Ben Taylor , the Marshall Tucker Band, Jenny Owen Youngs, Toby Lightman , Amy Helm , Harry Shearer and Judith Owen , Paul Shaffer, Louden Wainwright, Chris Collingwood and Alice Ripley.
Lily has been a guest on the following WXPN shows: Gene Shay's, Folk Show , Helen Leicht and The Key with John Vettese. Lily was also featured as part of WXPN's Home For The Holiday's Show, this past December. Lily has also recently been heard on WFUV in New York City, and KALX in Berkeley.
On the heels of Lily Mae's debut release, "Early Days," iTunes featured Lily as a New & Noteworthy singer-songwriter. Lily hails from Bucks County, PA, but has quite the following in the UK. "Early Days" has been reviewed on both Folk Radio UK and For Folk's Sake. For Folk's Sake called Lily "a younger Laura Marling before she was scorned by life."Truly amazing, prodigal, and innovative" are all words that have been used to describe Lily's work.
Lily has played at Philadelphia Folk Festival, Musikfest and Black Potatoe Music Festival. This summer Lily will be at Firefly.
