ABOUT LILY: A prolific songwriter, Lily Frost currently has 12 albums under her belt, under 5 different labels — Warner, Nettwerk, Aporia, Boxton and Marquis. Lily Frost comes from the Montreal underground mod scene. She moved to Vancouver and went from busking rockabilly to spearheading the Cocktail nation with her band The Colorifics who led the Blue Lizard Lounge scene throughout the 90’s.
Lily then signed to Nettwerk as a solo artist before moving to Toronto where she was born. She has been working hard with Aporia and Marquis for the past decade.
Lily is a dramatic, stylish performer who draws from the aesthetic of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the soundtracks of Quentin Tarantino, and the hot and bothered emotional drama that goes on between us fascinating humans. The poetry of Rimbaud, the erotica of Anaïs Nin, and torch singers like Julie London and Juliette Greco all serve as strong influences.
Frost has toured from Paris to Los Angeles and has shared stages with the likes of Pink Martini, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Coldplay and many more. Her awards include the Video Silver Sun through Bravo, a Gemini nomination for her theme song co-write for the hit TV series “Being Erica”, and Vancouver Female Vocalist of the Year in 2003.
Lily’s songs have been frequently placed in TV shows and movies such as Grey’s Anatomy, Crazy Beautiful, Chevy Cobalt, Charmed, Felicity, and many more.
Her efforts are now focused on curating a show that combines swing, rockabilly, burlesque, dance and fashion in an event called Big City Social. Ideally, this show will hit the road to her most responsive markets of Mexico City, Los Angeles, and Toronto.
“Lily Frost’s Rebound EP is the sexy, sassy story of a woman confidently exploring her romantic alternatives, told with bold horns, twangy guitars, and smoky vocals, in a moody, cinematic atmosphere. Utterly compelling.”
~ Howard Druckman, Editor in Chief, SOCAN
“Lily Frost’s newest musical offerings are brassy, tantalizing and deliciously fresh. If James Bond were a woman, this would be the soundtrack to her epic, kick-ass existence.”
~ Ami McKay, Author of The Birth House and Witches of New York
