‘Joni Mitchell meets Suzanne Vega.’
‘A real lyricist.’

Lily Kiara is a folk pop singer/songwriter based in Amsterdam, NL. She writes sensory lyrics on melodies with a melancholic undertone. They often balance on a thin line between song and poem. Social consciousness intertwined with personal journeys.
She plays her songs unplugged in living room concerts, in bars and small theatres as well as with her full band The RIVER in bigger venues.

In June 2015 she will tour the East Coast of the USA, between NYC and New Orleans, invited to join her fellow artists Jimmy Robinson from New Orleans and Floatstone from Gent, Belgium, and photographer Cy Leong from Gent.

In 2006, she formed a band, The RIVER, in which three big loves come together in surprising ways: folk pop songs, improvised music and poetry. In 2013/2014 The RIVER played a short series of concerts in Amsterdam, titled The SWIM SESSIONS, with the final one in the Bimhuis. A CD of this concert is expected in the beginning of 2015.

Lily releases CDs on her own label for music and poetry Sibyl Sings. Her new solo album is a new collaboration and will be released by Zip Records.

She opened for a.o. Duke Garwood (Mark Lanegan), Eric Anderson (Bob Dylan recorded a few of his songs) and Jennifer Terran (album The Musician was a favourite of Heaven Magazine). Besides her home base Amsterdam, she has played in places such as Seattle, NYC, Austin, Basel, Potsdam, Adelaide, Brussels and Berlin.

Lily Kiara plays solo gigs as well as concerts with one or more members of her band, from tiny streams to wild RIVERS.
[…]Lily Kiara doesn’t choose the common path, which makes this a wonderful album to listen to. A record that reminds of the early works of Joni Mitchell or Suzanne Vega.”

“…Musician Lily Kiara stays true to her heart…Time stops when one listens to Kiara’s poetic songs; her art reveals a multitude of raw emotions from the inside out. ..”
