Lilly has released five critically acclaimed albums and the duo album from 2017, Tenderly, feat. Gilad Hekselman, received an overwhelmingly positive response from the US, Germany and Denmark and was selected as TOP 5 BEST VOCAL RELEASE 2017 by The New York City Jazz Record.  In a review they e.g. wrote : “Tenderly is a truly superb recording, which rightly raises the expectations for her next effort”.

That next effort was released in March 2021, and is Lillys latest album, The Song Is You. It was recorded on Aug 1st 2019 at Big Orange Sheep Studio i Brooklyn, New York. Gilad Hekselman performs again and on all ten songs. This time he generously shares his many versatile musical gifts on both acoustic and electric guitar as well as percussion and bodypercussion on a couple of songs. The cornetist, Kirk Knuffke, contributes with his eminent playing on seven songs.  

This album features interpretations and arrangements of eight well-known and lesser-known jazz standards, a new composition by Lilly, Five Wild Geese, and an evocative version of the trad. Scarborough Fair. It is characterized by the open mood of the recording day and a playful approach. It offers moods of both light and lightness, darkness and heaviness, glow, soul and swing.
