By Lily Meola
Lily Meola was born and raised on the island of Maui, Hawaii. Her love of music blossomed in the passenger seat of her Mom’s car listening to legendary artists like Ella Fitzgerald, Joni Mitchell, and Carole King. Lily began performing around Maui in local bars and cafes at the young age of 11. Mentored by super-producer Bob Rock, Lily toured with the likes of Willie Nelson, learned to write songs with Jackson Browne, recorded duets with Steven Tyler, Kris Kristofferson, and Sammy Hagar, and co-wrote a single for Andra Day titled ‘Amen’. Lily spent the last few years in the studio writing and producing the bluesy, soulful pop songs that will make up her debut release.
