Sold-out concerts testify to the high quality of this outstanding artist.

 

Born in New York, Lilly Martin is one of the most distinctive voices and charismatic artists of the blues & soul music scene.

She grew up in a Cuban family of artists and musicians and was influenced by the cultural and musical diversity of New York. Her warm voice and distinctive style, blues and soul, are full of passion and sensuality.

 

Songwriting, performing and recording with renowned Swiss stars Polo Hofer and Philipp Fankhauser, as well as her contributions as a vocal coach on "The Voice Of Switzerland" are just some of the highlights in Lilly Martin's career. She sings backing vocals for Michael Bublé, Kathrina & The Waves and Steve Lee.

 

She has released 4 successful solo albums and has made countless appearances at prestigious blues and jazz festivals. Lilly has also had the privilege of performing for high profile audiences that have included celebrities such as Harry Belafonte and Bob Geldof.

As a guest of the prestigious 8th Rock & Blues Cruise 2020 you can experience Lilly Martin on the luxury cruise ship MSC Sinfonia with her groovy Blues & Soul live program.

 

Starting in 2020, Lilly Martin will present a new live program and can also be booked in the exquisite 7-piece formation with brass section.

Still current are the standard formation with 5 musicians as well as the intimate "Lilly Martin's Backbone Trio".

"What a voice! The New Yorker with her adopted country Switzerland convinces once again with expression, power and feeling. With "Right Now" she has succeeded in creating more than just a little pearl of blues and soul."

(Dirk Förs, Bluesnews Magazin )

 

Lilly Martin - Back Home To Minetta Street.

From the opener "Life In The City" with its Robert Gray-meets-Latin groove to the final instrumental, meditative "Runnway," a poem set to music to a friend who died too soon, the songs exude soul, charm and expression.

(Marco Piazzalonga, BLUES'N' ROOTS)

 

Musically versatile, cheerful, touching and romantic. That's how this album can be described in a few words. Lilly Martin and Michael Dolmetsch prove their qualities as songwriters and Lilly Martin impressively demonstrates what a great singer she is.
