LILA GRAY

March 28 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

$12
Thu, Mar 28 at The Royal in Nelson

7:30 p.m. PST

Raised in the mountains of BC, Lila Gray calls Vancouver home. Through her heartfelt lyrics and skillful songwriting, Lila plumbs the depths of her young adulthood and explores the trials and tribulations of queer womanhood in the 21st century. This young artist found her passion, and eternal love for music at the tender age of five, when she started her classical training through cello. Since then, Lila has picked up singing, songwriting, and guitar to establish her presence as a musician. Shortly after placing in the Top 100 of the 2021 CBC Searchlight Competition, Lila took off to Montreal to pursue a formal education in audio engineering and sound production. Lila’s unique production and intricate lyricism are masterfully executed in her sophomore album Wild Tension, which garnered a collective 10,000 streams on Spotify and a well attended coast to coast Canadian tour this past fall.

 

Growing up listening to influential classics such as The Beatles, James Brown, Queen, and The Kinks, while constantly finding new artists from whom to draw inspiration (Arlo Parks, Lorde, Billie Eilish, Bleachers, and Feist), Lila has managed to find her unique indie pop sound. Lila Gray collaborates regularly with other musicians (Jill Barber, Aza Nabuko, and Aysia Jordan among them) and is currently establishing herself as a music producer/audio engineer for other up and coming artists.
