Americana songwriter Lily B Moonflower of Lawrence, KS will release debut album “Moonflower” February 12, 2021. Telling stories about being “Wild and Free” to having the “Broke Bitch Blues”, Lily has been making her way through the Americana and jamgrass scene sharing her free-spirited style and soulful country voice from the main stages and around the campfires. Lily calls her music “folk n roll with a twang" and delivers her songs with grace and grit. Typically accompanied by a slew of talented bluegrass pickers, she also features an electric rock band setup.
“Moonflower” was recorded at Lost Cowgirl Records studio by producer Martin Farrell Jr.. The album features some of Kansas City and Lawrence’s finest players including Jake Keegan on dobro, Colby Allen Walter on mandolin, Michael Turnbo & Shannon O’Shea on fiddle, Miki P on drums, Jenna Rae on saxophone and back up vocals, and producer Martin Farrell Jr. on back up vocals, pedal steel, piano, telecaster guitar, tambourine, and bells. The album captures a traditional roots sound but also has “dream-like” moments and explores new dimensions in traditional music.
Lily B is a ray of sunshine on and off the stage and her passion for roots music is apparent at her live shows and through her music. This debut album gives you a peek into the mind of a young songwriter who longs to be connected to people and nature, loves searching for crystals and arrowheads, has experienced love and heartbreak, and brings the party to every show. She has shared the stage with Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, Jim Lauderdale, The Hillbenders, and many more. Lily is on a lifelong journey of creating music and this debut release will be one of many more to come.
