Lilla’s previous single “Crystal Love” was also a Top 10 hit via indy Dance label Armada Music.
After graduating from Berklee College of Music, the singer, bandleader and multi-instrumentalist released her second self-produced album, The Awakening.
From Kingston, Jamaica to Beijing, China, Lilla has recorded and performed with an impressive array of artists, including Annie Lennox, Trombone Shorty, Esperanza Spalding, Ciara, Damian & Stephen Marley, Talib Kweli, Willie Nelson, Mos Def, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Carole King, Kenny G, and more. With her dynamic band and soulful originals, few modern performers bring the class, presence, energy and talent that Lilla does to the stage.
At the age of 6, Lilla taught herself to play the piano by ear, soon after she fell in love with gospel music. In high school, she toured the East Coast with the internationally recognized choir, Royal Blues. At 16 Lilla joined a socially conscious hip-hop band along with Esperanza Spalding.
Her latest album was recorded around the world, from Bob Marley’s studio (Tuff Gong) in Jamaica, to Kfar Saba, Israel. The Awakening is her testament to the power of music and its ability to connect musicians, culture and people from around the globe.
