Enjoy an exclusive premiere of the beautiful new song “Lucien” from the forthcoming debut solo piano EP by Freya Lily. Due for release on March 23, ‘The Dream’ will be available on Spotify, iTunes, and other digital outlets.
Born in the Devonshire countryside and now based in London, Freya Lily has been studying classical piano and composing for years, but due to stage fright, she had never played her work to others until a chance encounter at a party where she discovered an upright piano in a side room and decided to test out some recent compositions. After playing, she turned around to discover the rest of the house party now in the room and received an overwhelming response to what became an albeit impromptu first outing for her music.
With the release of this trio of enchanting compositions, the rest of us will instantly understand the enthusiasm that must have greeted her unplanned debut. Recorded on an upright Yamaha piano in a friend’s front room, each of these songs explores a different range of tones, but share an entrancing fluid style that strikes a fine balance between melodic lyricism and thoughtful minimalism; consider the waltzing title track, the pensive “Golden Hour”, or the effusive colors of “Lucien” feature here in an exclusive premiere. The Dream is a lovely start to what promises to be much more to come.
