~Rolling Stone called her music “fiery and virtuosic…”   George Clinton called her “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin.”

Lili Haydn has released four critically acclaimed major label recordings as a solo artist.  Her last cd, Place Between Places (Nettwerk Music Group), was praised by NPR as “A mix of neo-psychedelic flower child and rock star virtuoso…Heifetz meet Hendrix.”  Lili performed the single “Strawberry Street” on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the HBO hit Californication.   Lili’s forthcoming CD, LiliLand, is a blend of quirky pop hooks, soulful melody, and raw grooves, unified by her unique brand of violin virtuosity, nakedly honest vocals, and poignant lyrics that reflect her passion for social justice and personal soul searching.   It has already been embraced by the likes of industry tastemakers Steve Lillywhite and Linda Perry, who praised it as “Unique, creative, moving, bold, sonically beautiful and really fucking clever.”

Lili is also known for her legendary collaborations; she has played with, sung with, and opened for everyone from Roger Waters, Herbie Hancock, Sting, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Josh Groban, Seal, Cyndi Lauper, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and George Clinton’s  P-Funk All Stars to name a few.   Both as a solo artist and as support, Lili has toured the world and performed in premiere concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, the Vienna Opera House and the Hollywood Bowl.

In addition to Lili’s extensive recording and touring career, Lili’s music has been licensed for TV, film, and commercials, and she is the featured voice and violin on several films with Hans Zimmer, among many others.  Lili is also a film composer in her own right, with ten feature films to her scoring credit, Additional Music credits on several films, and a Film Composing Fellowship to the prestigious Sundance Film Institute.  Her film credits include Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, (2011), Somewhere Between (2012), the award winning film The Horse Boy (2009), The Sublime and Beautiful (2014), and ANITA, directed by Academy Award winner Freida Mock (2014), among others.  Lili was just nominated for Best Music at the Milan International Film Festival.

A humanitarian and activist, Lili also performs regularly for various human rights and social justice organizations, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, the Global Security Institute (for whom she recently performed a concert at the UN), and Code Pink. Above all, Lili believes that music has the power to uplift and heal, and she’s very excited to share her new music with you.
