Lily and the Drum

The Mates Lily and the Drum is a Contemporary Blues, Roots Rock and Soul duo featuring vocalist, guitarist Lily and John on percussion, harmonica & backing vocals. Their shows have been described as “honest, raw and energetic” and “a guitar and drum duo with an exciting rich melodic sound”.

They released their debut album “Nobody Just Like Me “in 2012 and began touring throughout Victoria, NSW and SA. In 2014 they continued travelling to promote their next full length CD “Welcome Change”. This SA pair has been performing relentlessly since forming 5 years ago touring both cities and regional centres. Following their new release “Buried in Blue” in 2016 Lily and the Drum will continue to tour. “Australia is big place and although we have performed over 450 gigs and covered over 153,000kms we have only scratched the surface”.

The duo is popular for their live performances however; their recorded performances have also captured the attention of the music industry having had two Albums in the Top 25 Most Played Albums Australian Roots and Blues Airplay Chart.

They have performed at numerous festivals throughout the country and have been engaged to open for acts such as The Black Sorrows, Mental As Anything and supported by many Radio Stations in Australia the duo has built a good solid following throughout the country.
