“She’s the voice you hear in your favorite Chicago hip-hop artist’s music (cue Acid Rap and Innanetape), but she has also created an original jazzy, soulful, hip hop sound that is all her own. With inspirations from Ella Fitzgerald to Erykah Badu to Sharon Jones, Lili’s love and respect for music and it’s history is heard loud and clear. The melodic keys, hard hitting drums, guitar licks, and soulful bass of her band are the driving force behind her very musical and fun live shows.”
“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, Lollapalooza, Pitchfork, Summerfest and CMJ, and has shared stages with Musiq Soulchild, Dwele, BJ The Chicago Kid, Chance The Rapper, and Vic Mensa. She was listed in ‘Best of 2013′ lists on Rolling Stone, NPR, and Complex for her feature work with Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa.” -official bio
