So proud of our LILYISTHATYOU! Not only does she release her new Single “COMPETITION” today, she is also the EQUAL Ambassador on Spotify. The feature spot goes to a female Artist who is a voice for the LGBTQ+ community. Lily takes on the persona of “Lola” for this new era which has her tackling her demons and traumas.
When asked to share her story with EQUAL, Lilyisthatyou says “My story starts with poetry. It starts with being a young, anxious, depressed 13-year-old who was already lost in social media and substances to distract from the issues at home and in my head. My songwriting now reflects what I have grown out of and what I have grown into being. I write about forgiveness for the past and fill my songs with affirmations that will help me find comfort in the strong woman I have become because of the sexual abuse and addiction in my past. I want to tell it in a way that makes others feel less ALONE. I want my story to be one of hope and relatability for young women growing up, looking for ways to understand what holds them back and how to let go of the judgement the world has taught them to view themselves. I want how I share my story, piece by piece, character by character, to be the brutal truth.”
Her debut EP THE CHARACTER arrives July 29, 2022. Pre-save here.
