From humble beginnings in Cranbrook, British Columbia, Lillix formed in 1997 and were soon signed to Maverick Records in 2001. Lillix’ debut album “Falling Uphill” was released in May of 2003. With help from hit singles; “Tomorrow”, “It’s About Time” and a cover of The Romantics’ classic “What I like about you” (featured on the Freaky Friday soundtrack and co-stared Lindsay Lohan in the music video). Falling Uphill sold over half of a million copies worldwide.
Playing shows on Warped Tour with comrades such as The Sounds, Yellowcard and My Chemical Romance, Lillix have earned a diverse and loyal fan base. Lillix have opened for high profile acts from Metric & Alanis Morisette to Aerosmith & KISS. Between live appearances on the Tom Green show, TRL and Much on Demand, Lillix extensively toured North America and Japan (where their album achieved Gold status). They have Juno nominations for “Best New Group” and “Best Pop Album” and won “Best New Group” at the Canadian Radio Music Awards.
In 2006 Tasha-Ray and Lacey-Lee teamed up with drummer Alicia Warrington (Kelly Osbourne, Miley Cyrus) and released their sophomore album “Inside the Hollow”. The album was produced by Jeff Saltzman (The Killers) and James Michael (Motley Crue, Sixx A.M.). The single “Sweet Temptation” was voted one of the “Top 100 Songs of 2006” in Blender magazine.
After touring “Inside the Hollow” and with the sudden and unexpected demise of Maverick Records. Alicia and founding member Louise Burns decided to depart the band. The sisters took the time to regroup and made a key decision to *Gasp* add boys to the band… Backing the sisters are Eric Hoodicoff (Savage Blade, The Fuckstixx), Alex Varon (The Fall Collection, Bug House 5) and Cameron Brass (The Fall Collection, Mico).
With a power packed new line up, Lillix went into the studio with producer “Futcher” and recorded their third and boldest album to date “Tigerlily”. Written entirely by the Evin sisters based on the experiences of the last 5 years, their talent shines showcasing their pop song-writing sensibility and their range of musicianship by playing all the instruments (minus Drums) on Tigerlily. The girls even took on some of the engineering as well as all management and marketing of Lillix.
“Most people would have given up knowing the challenges we have faced” Says Lacey-Lee
“Instead, we took them on and found ways to make it work because making music is what we love to do”.
Delving into sexy melodic dance grooves and 80’s-esque pop ballads, the first single on “Tigerlily” is “Nowhere to Run” which features a Much Music heavy rotation video by award winning director Colin Minihan & National radio play. With Lillix finding their groove, up next is the second single “Back Up Girl” and the upcoming release of “Tigerlily” in Japan. With Lillix back in the ring, fans and critics alike predict a Tigerlily-TKO!
