Her love of music blossomed in the passenger seat of her Mom's car listening to legendary artists like Ella Fitzgerald, Joni Mitchell, and Carole King.

Mentored by super-producer Bob Rock, Lily toured with the likes of Willie Nelson, and was featured on his album of duets "to all the girls." She learned to write songs with Jackson Browne, and has shared the stage with Steven Tyler, Kris Kristofferson, Sammy Hagar, Alice Cooper and more.
