We had the pleasure recently of catching Lily-Jo live alongside LZ7 and were well impressed. Check out this awesome remix by Geek Boy Music of her Bring Me Back song. The team released the collab. to celebrate the upcoming launch of Lily-Jo’s brand new online mental health resource ‘The Lily-Jo Project‘.
Lily-Jo is a pop soul singer songwriter based in Manchester, UK and comes from three generations of musicians. She grew up singing in Church and after studying Performing Arts at college she went on to perform backing vocals alongside the likes of Damon Albarn, Nenah Cherry, De La Soul, Roots Manuva, and Shaun Ryder.
The past 2 years have seen Lily-Jo transition to the front of the stage as she released her self-titled debut mini EP with a gig at Glastonbury Festival and a whole range of national, and local press coverage including, BBC, UCB, and Premier. Just last year she released her debut five track EP ‘Need to Know’, after signing a record deal with LIGHT Music which saw her moving up to whole new levels.
Lily-Jo has a passion to inspire hope within her audience, and writes songs that bring freedom. This February 22nd she plans to release her very own online mental health resource which will have information, interviews, videos, audio, on the common mental health issues including; low mood, anxiety, self harm, eating disorders, childhood trauma, and low self-esteem.
She explained, ‘I was finding that after shows, people were letting me know that they were really connecting with my music on a deeper level and they were sharing their life stories with me. They were stories I was used to hearing within the counselling room. Stories of abuse, neglect, depression. I was aware that I wanted these people to have an ongoing resource that they could take home and connect with.’
