Dark and dreamy ballads by Miss Lily Fawn with special guest appearances by Carolyn Mark (of Mint Records), Godspeed You Black Emperor (members of), Dante Decaro (Hot Hot Heat, Wolf Parade), Cecil the Weasel (aka Marco Bozenich of Meatdraw / Hank Pine and Lily Fawn) and the wonderful “Brightest, Darkest” band members (Susan Farmer and Craig Visheck).
Lily’s Lullaby album, Brightest, Darkest, is a full-length release comprised of story telling ballads about baby snatching, woodland animals, deadly romance and fairy-tale nightmares.
The music and performance is charming, unique and daring…. Your kids will love it (well, maybe if they are 18 and over, or have already been subjected to David Lynch).
Lily’s Lullaby Album might not put you to sleep but it will do “something” to you. (For optimum enjoyment drink Lily Fawn’s Trance Tonic and wear your pajamas.)
Lily’s little voice sounds like a long lost relative of Julie Cruz (twin peaks), Johanna Newsome or Blossom Dearie. The music is inspired by artists such as Bjork, Blonde Redhead, Godspeed You Black Emperor, The Residents and local favorite Daddy’s Hands.
All of the songs on her new solo album, Brightest, Darkest, involve characters from her Hank and Lily comic book. The Lullaby Album will be released with it’s own hardcover storybook so you can follow along with the songs.
Lily is one half of the unstoppable vaudeville-rock duo, Hank Pine and Lily Fawn, from Fantasy Island – Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Hank and Lily have both made solo albums, each telling “their story”, based off the characters in their hit comic book series! www.hankandlily.com
She tap-dances and plays the musical saw; trumpet, ukulele, flute, drums and feedback on her first solo release, Brightest, Darkest.
Lily had also been caught tooting her horn in her other band www.meatdraw.com
