Diamond Year

Before 2012 comes to an end, we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped and supported Lilygun this year x

Thanks to the photographers, especially Harald Haugan, Adie Hardy for his brilliant work with our album, Nik Moore, John Dryland, Ays, Tino and all of the promoters, Djs and journalists for making this year our most successful yet.
Big love to Aaron John, David Ryder Prangley and Ashley Dreher for performing with us, sometimes at very short notice so that we could play all of the gigs and festivals we wanted to play at. You guys Rock!
Of the 117 albums Nanobot discovered in 2012, they asked you to select what you believed was the best and Lilygun made the cut! Thanks so much for everyone who voted for us and massive thanks to Allan Mckay from Music Riot for making Lilygun's debut album one of his top 5 best albums of 2012. Fantastic \m/

We hope you have all enjoyed our debut album and we can't wait to see what 2013 brings us.
We'll leave you with one last tasty treat courtesy of Allyn Lai, Diamonds live at The Garage.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Pretty Little Lady?

A long time ago, I was sitting in Mr Bailey’s house with a group of musicians and they were all jamming. One of them asked me to play something and I said no.
It wasn’t because I wouldn’t, it was because I couldn’t!

This will sound completely crazy because I’m a singer in a rock band but I’ve never been able to sing in front of other people in any situation that doesn’t involve me being on stage with 3 other musicians rockin’ out. Fronting a loud energetic rock band is completely different to the intimate settings of any acoustic performance and I’ve always admired musicians who can perform alone on stage with only an acoustic guitar and pull it off because it’s definitely not easy. I can't even do bloody karaoke?

And so… I have decided that now is the time to face my fears…”Pretty Little Lady?” is a concept I came up with for a series of acoustic gigs I will be performing on my own next year.
Drunken recording sessions have taken place… I will be playing a Garbage cover and a set of new songs especially for these particular shows venting my utter disgust at certain events and scum!

Not your typical singer/songwriter set, this will take balls to play!

“Let them fuel your fire”.

Love AC
