[Low Lily has] an incredible knack for putting a little pop twist on a traditional folk/Americana sound... it’s a blend that works beautifully.
The string and vocal trio Low Lily (formerly Annalivia) explores the roots and branches of American folk music with traditional influences and modern inspiration that weaves together a unique brand of acoustic music. Liz Simmons (vocals and guitar), Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, and mandolin), Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals and fiddle), and Corey DiMario (Crooked Still, the Sweetback Sisters) on double bass, are masterful players with deep relationships to traditional music styles ranging from bluegrass to Irish, Scottish, New England, and Old Time Appalachian sounds. When you combine this with stellar composition skills and inventive arrangements you get music that is rooted yet contemporary.
Low Lily’s new self-titled album brings their influences together in a collection of six songs which includes original and traditional material on three voices, guitars, mandolin, fiddle, double bass, and trombones. Additional musicians include Corey DiMario (double bass) and Fred Simmons (trombones). The album’s first track, “House Carpenter”, debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ charts– the band’s second #1 song.
Another reliable act who compellingly yet unassumingly mix contemporary folk and bluegrass sensibilities with a sensitive use of their keen musicianship.
Fresh and inviting melodic lines...impressive.
