Lilly Martin (USA/CH)

Music-Style: Blues & Soul - (PREMIUM ARTIST)


Swiss Blues Award winner in 2020

 

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

 

You could be in a Memphis soul-club, or a blues basement in Chicago: On stage is a tightly grooving band, no frippery, just steadfast musical competence with first-rate embellishments. And in front of them is a captivating singer, effortlessly unifying this sound tapestry with her vocals.

 

Lilly Martin possesses one of the most soulful blues voices in Switzerland and is the winner of the Swiss Blues Award 2020. She is currently on the road with her 5th solo album "Lookout".

 

Her captivating stage presence makes her a welcome guest at renowned blues and jazz festivals. At the same time, Lilly Martin is also an award-winning songwriter who values the content of her songs.

 

There is a fitting adjective that describes the US singer's performances with her Swiss band: "smooth". Not as in "smooth" or "arbitrary", but rather as in "natural" or even "intrinsic". It is, because the native New Yorker grew up with these sounds from the southern states, with soul music, gospel, blues. She lives out her old love for these styles with a band that is exceptionally solid - in the studio, but above all on stage.

 

A must for blues fans!

 

Press quote:

"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.

(Rolf Winter, bluesnews.ch )

With her unmistakable style, Lilly Martin combines blues and soul, passion and sensuality. Lilly Martin lives the music and interprets the songs in her own personal way, a vibrating mixture of jazzy elements and soul-soaked blues.

(Brigitte Meier, Berner Zeitung)
