Blaq Lily-- When Blaq Lily performs, the energy is tangible. Conversations stop and everyone stares, captivated by the enthralling combination of rich harmonies, exotic instrumentation and visual performance. Critics have exclaimed, 'Arminta's voice exudes passion', 'an amazing range that likens her to a cross between Delores O'Riordan of the Cranberries and Stevie Nicks.' Harpist Alexandra and guitarist Raven create strong backing vocals, with rich rhythmic textures that blend classical elements with modern rock for a truly unique sound. Lars and Joel support this sound with tribal drumbeats and bass lines. The band experienced tremendous success with their self-titled 1999 release. They returned to the studio in summer 2000, where with the help of producer Will Smith (Formerly of Capitol and Womack Records) and George Strakis (sound engineer for Whitney Houston, Cher and Cyndi Lauper) produced their second full-length project Still Waters. Appearances on the FOX network have generated enthusiastic responses. Blaq Lily supports The Artist Works Foundation (an endowment for young artists) through annual appearances at the City of Music Festival. This band's incredible versatility allows them to perform everything from acoustic Celtic to alternative and dance music.
