This past month, singer/songwriter Lily Mae of Furlong, a junior at Solebury School, has had her music career gain momentum, and on Saturday, January 12 at 7:30 p.m., Lily Mae will be hosting and singing her original songs during her own CD release concert in the Solebury School Performing Arts Center on the school’s Phillips Mill Road campus. The event is free and open to the public.
With that distinct sound of an open-tuned acoustic guitar and a jazzy, folksy soprano voice reminiscent of the legendary Joni Mitchell, Lily Mae has been and continues to grow as a talented singer/songwriter. She draws inspiration from popular Indy singer/songwriter Jenny Owen Youngs among others.
Lily’s soulful sound has been welcomed over the past month at The Tea Lounge and The Green Point Gallery in New York City and locally at Going Bananas in Richboro. Just this past week, on January 4, Lily was WXPN radio’s artist pick of the day. Even more exciting are her gigs on February 23 at the New Hope Winery when she will be opening for singer/songwriter Livingston Taylor and to open for Ben Taylor (son of James Taylor and Carly Simon) at Sellersville Theatre on February 26th. And there’s more. Lily has just released her debut CD of original songs titled “Early Days,” which is now available on iTunes and is currently slated to be interviewed for the popular UK folk magazine/website, “For Folk’s Sake.”
Congrats to Lily!
