Zoey Lily (née Zoe Lily Lewis) may be a relative newcomer to the world of left-field pop, but for this 20-year-old singer, musicianship is no passing fancy. The Hackney-based artist first delved into creative expression at age 13 when she began playing piano and her first wide-eyed forays into songwriting. Later, at age 17, Zoey found herself drawn to her father’s acoustic Martin guitar, the instrument which she still writes most of her songs with today.
Raised between the hectic metropolis of London and the rural serenity of southern French village, Les Mayons, Zoey can denote her creative instinct to a multicultural and multilingual upbringing. It’s one that also included international tours with her live music agent father (Joss Stone, Van Morrison) and the artistic influence of her a mother, a former Parisian fashion designer.
In the past year, Zoey Lily has set out to become a highly independent and original songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, co-producer and dancer.
