" Lili manages to mix Kate Bush with modern influences to make a beautifully unique sound based around her amazing violin skills and soulful voice."

"I really like the spareness of it, and the content…the strong thread of mid-60's Haight-Ashbury aggression and looseness to it all, informed by beat making grooves (with some classical influence : )). All the different feels, from Russian folk to Carnival to Flamenco to hiphop, and beyond. Your voice sounds really great...dark and rich. I also really like This Is A Moment.... Great programming and movement. Love I Am A Man, and the way it goes into a sort of funeral/gospel song. Tyrant was one of my faves, esp the line about not knowing the cost of freedom until you're free…great!"
-- David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Lana Del Rey)
