We wrote about Lily Lambert’s Christmas track, ‘Carol Of The Bells’, back in 2015, which we included in our Essential Advent Calendar that year. Now we’re happy to report she’s released more music, and we present her latest track, ‘Ooh La La La’, from her 4th studio album, ‘Wherever You Go’, which was released on December 15 last year.
Part Irish, part Welsh, born in England but now based in Phoenix, Arizona, Lily is a non-conformist musician who puts her own stamp on all her songs. As if to show how much she goes against the grain, Lily followed her heart to New York City to pursue her dream of music, despite graduating from Law School with honours. It proved to be the right decision however, with Lily performing in myriad musicals and Off-Broadway productions, all the while writing music – backstage, in rehearsals, and waiting for her turn at auditions.
Lily’s debut album, ‘Life Of Lily’, and its subsequent follow-up albums have been met with international acclaim, and set her on a path of exploring a fuller sound, bordering on Folk Rock and Country – Americana even. In 2014 she took home an IMEA award for Folk Album of the Year, while in 2015 she was awarded Folk Artist Of The Year, and Folk Song Of The Year in 2016. Lily was also awarded a Global Music Award for her Holiday Album as well as an Akademia Award for Best Singer-Songwriter Album.
Every album has seen Lily strip back her style, letting the material speak for itself. Album number 4, ‘Wherever You Go’, is her most poignant album to date, with its optimism and compassion.
Featured track, ‘Ooh La La La’ is alluring and pure, with a rawness which is both captivating and striking in its simplicity.
