Usually the most mundane detail an artist’s profile starts with is where he or she was born, but in
the case of genre-transcendent alt punk folk rocker Lily Vakili – it’s the best place to
capture the start of her wild, freewheeling, expansive life journey. “I was born in Honduras

Lily's currently working on her second band project, a new EP due out in 2020 engineered and produced by David Amlen of Sound on Sound Studios (the renowned NYC recording studio, now relocated to Montclair, New Jersey). The lead single - a crackling, hard-rocking empowerment anthem defiantly titled “She Wants What" - is due to drop in October. Hold onto your hats...
