It’s an exciting time for Portland native, Lilla the singer currently has her
single Don't Stop The Music charting in the top 10 on the UK Pop charts. Her
last single Crystal Love also charted in the top 10. Shortly after graduating
from Berklee College of Music, the singer, bandleader and multi-
instrumentalist released her second self-produced album, The Awakening.
Her latest release was the remix of Don’t Stop The Music produced by the
only and only, Eric Kupper. The remix mashes the sounds of futuristic, R&B
and old-school funk with an insanely danceable beat!
Over the last year, she has toured throughout the US, performing on festival
main stages. From Kingston, Jamaica to Beijing, China, Lilla has recorded
and performed with an impressive array of artists, including Nahko and
Medicine for the People, Annie Lennox, Trombone Shorty, Esperanza
Spalding, Ciara, Damian & Stephen Marley, Talib Kweli, Willie Nelson, Mos
Def, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Carole King, Kenny G, and more. With her
dynamic band and soulful originals, few modern performers bring the class,
presence, energy, and talent that Lilla does to the stage.
At the age of 6, Lilla taught herself to play the piano by ear, soon after she
fell in love with gospel music. In high school, she toured the East Coast with
the internationally recognized choir, Royal Blues. At 16 Lilla joined a socially
conscious hip-hop band along with Esperanza Spalding. Their original songs
pushed the boundaries of hip-hop and jazz. After providing guest vocals for
a numerous of hip-hop, R&B and jazz notables, Lilla felt the call to produce
an album of her own.
This down to earth, kind-hearted young artist infuses her music with passion
and soul. She generates an uplifting energy and she is active in her
community. Through her music, education, environmental and charity
efforts, she is committed to making a positive impact in the world.
Writing, producing and performing her two full-length albums are some of
Lilla’s most remarkable accomplishments. Despite the challenges of
creating truly original music, the end products are those of uncompromising
dedication to music with integrity.
Her latest album was recorded all over the map, from Bob Marley’s studio
(Tuff Gong) in Jamaica to Kfar Saba, Israel. The Awakening is her testament
to the power of music and its ability to connect musicians, culture, and
people from around the globe. Lilla is excited to share more music this
