Singer songwriter Lily Frost is a rare bird from Canada’s musical woods. Lily Frost has always danced the line between indie and jazz, thus creating a niche of her own. Frost draws from her real life experiences in her lyrics - in performance, there is an intimacy, a gentle passion that can take you somewhere else and evokes a certain nostalgia – the rainy streets of Paris, a winter picnic or perhaps a beat café in San Francisco.
This rarity and distinctiveness can be found on her latest offering, Do What You Love, which marks a return to her indie-pop songstress roots. Do What You Love was conceived, written and recorded as a letter to the daughter she was about to have – a guide to life that contained lessons Lily learned along the way. With eight recordings to her credit and over a decade navigating the music industry, Lily Frost has a lot of insight and lessons to share.
"I wanted to make a fun, upbeat record for my daughter that included lessons I had learned the hard way,” says Lily. “I wanted to leave people feeling inspired with smiles on their faces."
Do What You Love puts Lily’s distinct sound and exceptional talents together in one concise package. From the lyrics to the arrangements to the striking artwork, it packs a punch and delivers insightful truths about life - embracing femininity with strength, joy and creativity. For this latest offering, Lily enlisted the help of in-demand producers me&john (Ryan Kondrat and John LaMagna) to focus her sound. Do What You Love is a well-crafted musical mosaic that features instantly hummable pop songs (”Do What You Love”, “Background Radio”), ‘60s girl’s group inspired tunes (”Poetry”) as well as trip-pop (”Stand”), country swing-folk (”No Promises) and a cover of Pink Floyd's “San Tropez”.
Largely written in a cabin in Georgian Bay, Do What You Love also features Jose Contreras (By Divine Right) and includes cameos by Bryden Baird (Zeus, Feist), and Brendan Canning (Broken Social Scene) and a string arrangement on ”Stand” by Todor Kobokov (Small Sins, Emily Haines).
** Exclusive to Quebec retail is a two disc version of Do What You Love which features a collection of original Lily Frost songs performed in French. Includes “Je M’Envole” (“I’m On Fire”), one of the upcoming singles from Do What You Love. **
TRACK LISTING: “Je M’Envole”, “Des Etes Intemporel”, “Vaisseaux Nocturnes”, “Chalet du Bois”, “Je Reviendrai”, “Verlaine”, “Laure Elaine”
“[Lily Frost’s] romantic, dreamy tunes stir the imagination and evoke exotic locales with sexy Latin rhythms and light-hearts Parisian-style synths. Frost plays acoustic guitar and delivers her breathy vocals with a retro cool, a swinging ‘60s chanteusee with keen insights into modern life.” - Eye Weekly
“Frost has crafted yet another sterling release that will, if all is right with the world, push her onto the A-list of Canadian singer-songwriters.”- Scene & Heard
