Two guitars making an audacious acoustic Folk-punk noise with heartfelt lyrics and a big Mezzo voice.

A smooth mezzo voice, together with the intricate weaving of two bass-heavy acoustic guitars and a flair for extreme dynamics is what makes LILA J so unique.
Following in the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix & Led Zeppelin, they have graced the stage at The Troubadour, London. They have also supported The Damned at Gloucester Guildhall and took to the stage in Australia in 2019 at The Gasoline Pony in Sydney.
Recently played on the BBC, they are beginning to get noticed for their unusual and pleasing sounds.
Likened to a modern day Velvet Underground, with some obvious Tom Waits influence, they have a unique, raw and uncompromising sound which is unexpected yet strangely familiar.
Expect a big sound from this pair, with anthemic tunes, sing a long choruses and gypsy stomps with throbbing pulses, that will stay with you long after the show is over!

Still available- the independently released 3rd album “Journey” August 2019.

Previous releases “Treasure” EP 2018. “Duple” 2017. Ambulance 2016.

A strong folk rock/indie vibe coming from these two! Strong vocal presence entwined with all the ingredients befitting of a popular festival act.

One to keep your eyes on for sure, especially coming into the new festival season, they would fit perfectly at Glastonbury.
