New Album 'Let's Talk About It' Out Now!
"The profound relationship between melody and lyrics leaves these tunes permeating long after the disc has ended....without a doubt Lily's finest album to date" Peter Wokner, Jazz And Beyond
Lily Dior establishes herself as a powerful songwriter with the release of her third album 'Let's Talk About It', a heartfelt collection of soul songs with jazz edges and a deep groove sensibility.
Already drawing critical acclaim, Lily launched her album to a packed house at Sydney's iconic jazz venue 'The Basement' with a massive fifteen piece band which included many of Australia's best jazz musicians as well as a string quartet and backing vocals by Virna Sanzone and Tina Harrod.
"This is an impressive production - a tight core band, augmented variously with horns, strings and backing singers. Throughout, the spotlight is on Dior's singing, sassy, soulful, passionate and strong." - Adrian Jackson, Rhythms
