Lily Haydn, beyond words

E o que dizer de Lily Haydn, que descobri assistindo ao DVD de Clinton em 2005 e que agora tem excursionado com Herbie Hancock? Além do talento extraordinário, é a mais linda violonista de todos os tempos. Outro dia a conheci em um show de Kim Manning e também nos reencontramos passeando por Venice Beach e andando pela Rodeo Drive. Por essas e outras é que eu não troco Los Angeles por nada...

George Clinton calls her the Jimi Hendrix of the violin. Rolling Stone called her music an impassioned mix of classical, pop, rock, and funk. Lili has played and sung with everyone from Funkadelic to Jimmy Page and Robert Pant, Sting, Josh Groban, and the LA Philharmonic. As a solo artist, Lili has released two critically acclaimed major label recordings; her self produced debut cd Lili (released on Atlantic in 1997) and Light Blue Sun (released through Arista in 2004), and has toured opening for Sting, Page and Plant, Cyndi Lauper, Funkadelic and Matchbox 20 in addition to her own electrifying headline shows. This summer Lili will be playing and singing with the legendary Herbie Hancock starting at Carnegie Hall, then to Europe and ending at the Hollywood Bowl August 9. And after two years of touring and writing, Lili will release a new EP called Memory One which embraces her classical roots and unique brand of virtuosity, and her love of lush pop, rock and groove. Look for it this June on Itunes and all the internet stores.
