We have great pleasure in bringing you an exclusive premiere from the new Low Lily self-titled debut EP. The string and vocal trio Low Lily (formerly Annalivia) explores the roots and branches of American folk music with traditional influences and modern inspiration. The members of the trio have deep relationships to traditional music styles ranging from bluegrass to Irish, English, New England and Old Time Appalachian sounds. Their new EP brings these influences together in a collection of six songs which includes original and traditional material on three voices, guitars, mandolin, fiddle, and double bass.
Listen to ‘All Roads Lead to You‘ below. Liz Simmons tells us Flynn and his friend Aram Sinnreich collaborated to write this one– they claim it is not completely autobiographical, but they dedicate it to their wives anyway.
Low Lily’s members are Liz Simmons on vocals and guitar, Flynn Cohen on vocals, guitar and mandolin, and Lissa Schneckenburger on vocals and fiddle. With guitar-wiz Scott Nygaard as co-producer, they recorded Low Lily, engineered by Alan Stockwell, in Brattleboro, VT. Additional musicians include Corey DiMario on double bass, and Fred Simmons on trombone. The album is a deep and intricate ‘postcard from the road’, with songs that are mainly about traveling.
Low Lily is released August 27th 2015.
