More About Lili KLili K. is the charismatic 20 year old songstress whose name is quickly popping up in different circles around the Midwest. Her infectious smile is nothing compared to the reaction that people have upon hearing her sing. Her smooth and sultry sound is countered well by her quirky and energetic live performances with her band, The Secret Garden.
She began performing in her early years through church and elementary school choirs and started writing original music at the age of ten. Since then, she has built quite a repertoire of an original jazz/ neo-soul/ electronic-hip hop sound. Growing up in an artistic household in the inner city of Milwaukee, Lili learned to channel her emotions and combine her influences to create her individual sound. She graduated from Milwaukee High School of the Arts where she was trained in classical, opera, and jazz voice, as well as music theory, and is currently a Junior at Columbia College Chicago, majoring in music business.
Miss K. has performed at numerous events, including Summerfest and CMJ, and has performed alongside acts like Dwele, The Cool Kids, BJ The Chicago Kid, and Peter Hadar, etc. at reputable venues in the Midwest including The Metro and The Double Door. On July 1st, 2011, Lili released her first project, a four song EP entitled 'A Prelude To Hello,' with composer Peter Cottontale. The EP has gotten outstanding reviews from prominent online media outlets such as Soul Bounce, Ruby Hornet, Art Nouveau Mag, etc. She's a fresh face to the game with a modernly vintage sound; there is much more to come from this young soul singer.
