Lillian Frances is a music producer based out of Sacramento, CA. She is a sonic collager of sorts, tying together natural and synthetic sounds over groovy beats, heavy bass, and soaring vocals. Her unique alt-pop style has been compared to Lorde, Billie Eilish, and Sylvan Esso.
Lillian performs live with her guitar, keyboard, laptop and PUSH controller. Her captivating performances include live looping, on the fly-mixing, and some (questionably) groovy dancing. As her honest, funny, and at times, raunchy lyrics effortlessly glide between English and Spanish, she wittily conveys the humor in her millennial experience and connects with audiences wherever she goes.
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. In the summer of 2020 she will be releasing her debut album, Moonlight Queendom, and performing at festivals across the West Coast, including Do-It-Ourselves in Santa Cruz.
