"The effusive energy of the track and her performance knocked me out.
What we've gained as a result is a serious career to watch"

Lillian Frances is a sonic collager hailing from Davis, CA. She was a Polly Pocket in a past life, and draws inspiration from the creative nature of children. While crafting her music, Frances isn’t bothered by genre, or motivated to create in a particular style. One minute she leads you through a poppy, textured dream-land, the next you tumble into sparse, trappy beats as Lillian glides effortlessly between English and Spanish.
Her unique alt-pop style has been compared to Lorde, Sylvan Esso, and Billie Eilish. On June 5, she will hand over the keys to Moonrise Queendom, her debut album.
Her 2018 EP, Timeism, was praised by NPR's Heavy Rotation, Indie Shuffle, and Cap Radio. Past festivals include Sacramento PorchFest, the Davis Music Festival (2017, 2019), and the Davis Cherry Blossom Festival (2018, 2019, 2020); notable performances include opening for Sylvan Esso, and playing alongside Shakey Graves, Sage the Gemini, and Lexi Panterra.
