“One of the best performances I’ve ever seen. You would have liked her, Leonard. ” –Maclean’s Magazine (review of tribute concert in honour of Leonard Cohen’s 70th birthday)
The style is a tasteful blend of old timey swing, 60s surf, spaghetti western and sultry torch fronted by Lily who draws on the aesthetics of Audrey Hepburn and Bettie Page. The full seven-piece band is complete with some of the best musicians in Toronto: Nichol Robertson (guitar), Michael Herring (double bass), Sly Juhas (drums), Bob Stevenson (clarinet), Burke Carroll (lapsteel), Allison Young (sax) and Tim Hammel (trumpet), all of whom also perform with Lily in the alternate band formations of duo, trio, four or five piece.
With a Songbook-era set list that spans the repertoire of Billie Holiday, Hank Williams, Peggy Lee, Nancy Sinatra and Julie London alongside of original material and songs from Ray Condo’s arsenal, the live performance is spiked with rockabilly revivalism and swings hard!
