Lilla (formerly known as Lilla D’Mone) will be playing at TT the Bear’s in Cambridge on September 14, 2014 in support of her sophomore full-length, The Awakening.
Lilla moved from Portland, Ore. to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music. She recorded the album while still in school. Lilla has worked with and shared the stage with Annie Lennox, Willie Nelson, Mos Def, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Esperanza Spalding, Carol King, Stephen Marley, Ciara, Kenny G, Boyz II Men, Pussycat Dolls, Wu Tang, Trombone Shorty, Kermit Ruffins.
The Awakening is a soulful, jazzy-pop album filled with world beats, horns, funky percussion, massive and eclectic arrangements. Lilla showcases an immense vocal range from romantic and gentle on “Wake Up” to pretty and relaxed on “Talkin’ to strong, confident on “Memoirs.” Passionate, gorgeous mood music.
