Lili Haydn has released four critically acclaimed recordings as a solo artist. Lili (Atlantic Records), Light Blue Sun (BMG Music), Place Between Places (Nettwerk Music Group), which was a favorite on NPR, praising it as “A mix of neo-psychedelic flower child and rock star virtuoso…Heifetz meet Hendrix,” and LiliLand, released in late 2014, with its single, Sea of Gold reaching commercial radio success. LiliLand was written in the aftermath of a freak chemical accident resulting in the loss of everything Lili owned. Lili describes this record as “the jungle of my mind. Fun, fragile, and ferocious songs about losing everything and getting it back”
July of 2015, Lili released “Classical Crossover” album titled Evocations, with Master pianist/composer Bill Goldstein, a completely improvised work which highlights the duo’s distinct genre bending virtuosity and ability to create “Instant Composition.”
Lili is also known for her legendary collaborations; she has played with, sung with, and opened for everyone from Roger Waters, Herbie Hancock, Sting, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Josh Groban, Seal, Cyndi Lauper, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and George Clinton’s P-Funk All Stars to name a few.
Both as a solo artist and as support, Lili has toured the world and performed in premiere concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, the Vienna Opera House and the Hollywood Bowl.
In addition to Lili’s extensive recording and touring career, Lili’s music has been licensed for TV, film, and commercials, and she is the featured voice and violin on several films with Hans Zimmer (Pirates of the Caribbean 3 & 4), among many others. Lili is also a film composer in her own right, with ten feature films to her scoring credit, and a Film Composing Fellowship to the prestigious Sundance Film Institute.
A humanitarian and activist, Lili also performs regularly for various human rights organizations, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, the Global Security Institute (for whom she recently performed a concert at the UN). Above all, Lili believes that music has the power to uplift and heal, and she’s very excited to share her new music with you.
