"I will go to the United States and have a music career there", LiLi told her friends as she was just 14. Growing up on la Côte d'azur with a multi-instrumentalist father, she learned music as it was all around her. She has actively been pursuing music since Middle School: from recording lead and backup vocals in solo or in duet for side projects or albums, to programming, and performing live with numerous bands. She released "A Taste of Departure" as the lead singer/writer of her first American pop-rock band, Phizzy Lager. She then quickly proved her professionalism in Cleveland - home of rock'n'roll - during the recording of the alternative-rock album "Neverending Sundown" with band Hate Dies Hard at Bill Korecky's Mars Studio (home for bands from Universal Records, Victory, Century Media) who then recommended her to composer/producer Sean Bilovecky (Disengage). She worked with him on a side project and the song "I Saw You" was born. Pushing herself to living music to the fullest, she moved to New York City and started writing her own projects, while performing live on the piano. Entirely funded by fans, her first solo EP was mixed and mastered by three-time Grammy Award winning engineer Marc Urselli and it includes her Multi-Award-Winning music video for "I Saw You". Her second solo release "Will you hate the rest of the world or will you renew your life?" and her music video "Should you get mad" (directed by Arnaud Muller/RNO Pictures who worked with band U2) received movie, documentary and TV Features and placements (Lifetime Network, MTV... ), awards, airplay, press attention, exciting her fanbase at concerts and on social-networking sites. Introspective confessionalist, she is aware there is strength in vulnerability, and with that knowledge she shares her growth as an individual as well as a musician. In the 3rd solo release "Beautiful Sun", this singer-songwriter-composer invited in bassist/guitarist Askold Buk (Abc, MTV) on guitars and bass, and cello players the Wandering Cellist and Christopher Marion (Bill Evans, CBS Orchestra) to follow her directions through this audio journey she takes the listener on. The mix of Marc Urselli (Les Paul, Eric Clapton, Joss Stone) and mastering by Roman Vail (JLM Mastering; Moby, The Black Crowes, Sinnead O'Connor) allow the grace and style of LiLi's compositions to shine as brightly as the beautiful sun of which she sings.
