Start with excellently matched vocals, add some world-class playing, sprinkle with raised-off-grid Americana and you get Low Lily. Flynn's deft flat picking on guitar and mandolin and Lissa's virtuosic fiddle-playing are grounded by Liz's percussive rhythm guitar playing, the sounds of which combine joyously in this stunning ensemble. With a vocal blend that has been dubbed "outstanding" and "meticulous," Low Lily's refreshing, cohesive sound comes naturally for musicians whose lives have been entwined on the road and onstage for almost two decades. Setting down roots in Brattleboro, Vermont, the band has crafted a signature sound they have shared with enthusiastic audiences throughout North America and Europe, garnering two #1 songs on international folk radio and two New England Music Award nominations. Chosen as Falcon Ridge Folk Festival's "Most Wanted Band" of 2016, Low Lily plays acoustic music that is deeply rooted i tradition yet sounds refreshingly contemporary. With their first full-album release, 10,000 Days Like These, Low Lily shares an intimate, no-tricks-involved, collection of songs that showcases their talents and proves them to be a formidable, ready-for-prim-time act. A first album this strong doesn't come from newbies - all the members have performed with numerous well-known names in folk and traditional music. Flynn has toured with Ruth Moody, John Whelan, Cathie Ryan and Aoife Clancy. Liz has toured with Tom Chapin, Livingston Taylor, Melanie and Long Time Courting. Lissa has toured as a solo act as well as with Solas and Childsplay. Corey was a founding member of Crooked Still, and also performs with the Sweetback Sisters and the Karan Casey Band.
