Lili K. is the 22 year old songstress whose name is quickly popping up in the music world. Her smooth and sultry sound is countered well by her quirky and energetic live performances.
She began performing in her early years through church and elementary school choirs and started writing original music at the age of ten. Since then, she has built quite a repertoire of an original jazz/ neo-soul/ electronic-hip hop sound. Growing up in an artistic household in the city of Milwaukee, Lili learned to channel her emotions and combine her influences to create her individual sound. She graduated from Milwaukee High School of the Arts where she was trained in classical, opera, and jazz voice, and graduated in December of 2012 from Columbia College Chicago with a bachelors degree in Arts, Entertainment, and Media Management.
Lili K. has performed at SXSW, Pitchfork, Summerfest and CMJ, and has shared stages with Musiq Soulchild, Dwele, BJ The Chicago Kid, Chance The Rapper, etc. In July of 2011, Lili released her first project, a four song EP entitled 'A Prelude To Hello,'
with composer Peter Cottontale. She has worked with Thelonious Martin
, MC Tree
, Vic Mensa
, and Chance The Rapper
. In October of 2012, Lili and Peter Cottontale released their second project 'Metal Petals.'
Lili K. released her third EP 'My Favorite Things'
on July 1, 2013. She was listed in 'Best of 2013' lists on Rolling Stone, NPR, and Complex for her features with Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa.
She is currently working on her debut album, due the end of 2014. She's a fresh face to the game with a modernly vintage sound; there is much more to come from this young vocalist.
