Lily Rose innovates in contemporary country

The project was scrapped last October 1 under Big Loud Records / Black Block Music and Republic Records, and it includes five previously released and critically acclaimed tracks, two new songs and a brand new music video for the title track “Stronger Than I. Am. ”
Dubbed by Billboard as “a promising new talent”, Lily Rose first rose to fame in December 2020 after releasing her song “Villains”. The song’s catchy melody combined with vulnerable, raw, and genuine storytelling proved to be a career opener and put her in the limelight. The responsive single caught the attention of her current label, who signed her into a joint venture recording deal a month later.
But being an overnight sensation wasn’t just luck and timing for the artist. Lily Rose has invested 13 years of work to get to where she is right now.
Growing up in Atlanta, she had been in music for a very long time, even learning to play drums and guitar. But it wasn’t until high school that she really found her voice. Music aside, Lily Rose was also very good at athletics, and she ultimately had to choose which of two avenues she would take. In the end, she decided to make music in bars and resume shows in the university city of Athens, Georgia, which then led to sold-out shows from Atlanta to Athens, until ‘in New York and the heart of country music. , Nashville, Tennessee. His sound of contemporary music adopting a futuristic 21st century country mixed with a traditional country influenced by Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban has undeniably won him a lot of listeners.
In 2017, Lily Rose finally made her big move to Nashville. Three years later, she is on a pioneering road to make her name in country music not only as a musician but also as a member of the LGBTQIA + community.
Her new and very first collection, delivered just ten months after her official signing as a label artist completes the raw and vulnerable story she has told through “Villain”, “Overnight”, “Sensation”, “Recalls me from you, “” Do you know my way “, and “I do not smoke.”
Lily Rose hopes her music can help pave the way for others to not be afraid to embrace their dreams. But more importantly, she wants to emphasize the importance of authenticity – truly being yourself and not looking at others to tell you who you are – and being a good person. These two things, in addition to loving the people who give you that love and support back, are the ingredients to achieve great things in life.
