It's an exciting time for Lilla. One week after graduating from Berklee College of Music, she released her second self - produced album, The Awakening . Over the summer she toured throughout the US, appeared on festival main stages on both coasts, and this fall she was the opener for Mos Def on his tour. Lilla has played from Kingston, Jamaica to Beijing, China, working with an impressive array of artists, including Ciara, Damian & Stephen Ma rley, Talib Kweli, Trombone Shorty, Esperanza Spalding, the Wu - Tang Clan, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Annie Lennox, Willie Nelson, Carole King, Kenny G and Boyz II Men. Backed by her hard - hitting band and armed with a collection of soulful original tunes, few modern performers bring the class, message and talent that Lilla brings to the stage. "A languid, sultry, neo - soul and R&B mix that is instantly accessible yet shows a remarkable depth and musical maturity." - The Oregonian At the age of 6 she tau ght herself to play the piano by ear and, by age 12, began singing in her local gospel choir. In high school other opportunities presented themselves -- in addition to gospel choir, she sang and toured the East Coast with the internationally recognized Roya l Blues, at the same time providing stage and studio vocals for several acts. It was during this time that she found a niche in the West Coast scene. After performing guest vocals for a number of published releases, and studio work with national hip - hop, R&B and jazz notables, she felt she had enough experience to strike out on her own. Writing, producing and performing her two full - length albums are some of Lilla's greatest accomplishments to date. Despite the challenges of creating truly original musi c, the end products are those of uncompromising dedication to music with integrity. Her recent album was recorded all over the map, from Bob Marley's studio Tuff Gong in Jamaica, to Lilla's hometown of Portland, Oregon. The Awakening is a celebration of the power of music and its ability to connect musicians, cultures and people from around the globe.

    Lilla

    R&B

    With her dynamic band and soulful originals, few modern performers embody class, presence, energy, and talent like Lilla does. At the age of 6, Lilla taught herself to play the piano by ear, and 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 the age of 16, Lilla joined a socially conscious hip-hop band along with Esperanza Spalding where their original songs pushed the boundaries of hip- hop and jazz. After providing guest vocals for a number of hip-hop, R&B and jazz notables, Lilla felt the call to produce an album of her own.

    It's now an exciting time for the Portland, Oregon, native. Shortly after graduating from Berklee College of Music, the singer, bandleader, and multi-instrumentalist released her second self-produced album, The Awakening. Over the last year she has toured throughout the US, performing on festival main stages, as well as joining Allen Stone and Thievery Corporation as their tour opener. 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.

    Writing, producing and performing her two full-length albums are some of Lilla's most remarkable accomplishments. Despite the challenges of creating truly original music, the end products are those of uncompromising dedication to music with integrity. Her latest album was recorded all over the map, 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.

    This down to earth, kindhearted young artist infuses her music with passion and soul. She generates an uplifting energy and she is active in her community. Through Lilla's music, education, environmental, and charity efforts, she is committed to make a positive impact in the world.
