LILA J Short Info

Lila J are a talented pair of musicians, who write and perform their own unique and genre- defying collection of songs. A quirky duo who bring together the sound of African musicians Franco & Dr. Nico, a Waits style story-telling, a Velvet Underground rawness and a good dose of gypsy flair!
With just two intricately woven acoustic guitars and one great sultry voice, they create songs with intriguing lyrics and infinitely catchy tunes that are difficult to pigeon hole but will make you smile and believe you’ve heard them before! It’s hard to believe they can make a full band sound with so little instrumentation but then they can also give you a stripped back ballad, allowing the velvet voice to shine.
Although only back on the scene in 2014, this duo have been playing for many years. Songs such as "Don’t wait too long" & “Little Dragon”, are instantly memorable and you will find yourself humming a LILA J tune, long after they have finished and left the building..
Their second Album “Duple” released in May 2015 was well received and they have been gigging extensively since, including supporting big names such as The Damned.
2016 has been their first big festival summer as they played at many, including The Godney Gathering, Livestock, The Acoustic Festival of Great Britain, Castlefest UK & Surplus Festival.
Preparing to go back into the studio this winter to record their third album,
the LILA J train doesn’t look to be stopping any time soon!
