Lily and King are a lovely, quirky, musical junkyard from Melbourne, Australia.
They aim is to use all of their limbs for making music at the one time. Junkyard blues, Dixieland punk, sailor songs, weird carnie show tunes and the odd bit of curious pop, their music is joyful, beautiful and a bit dirty and wicked too.
Lily and King create rousingly catchy music that sits somewhere between a captivating 40's nightclub routine and the raw, rambunctious spirit of New Orleans street buskers. With trombone, sweet and sassy vocals, toy piano, guitar, half a toy drum kit and an abundance of foot stomping, a Lily and King gig is a truly wild and joyful experience.
Lily started playing trombone as she saw it as an easy way to meet dysfunctional men. King is a double-bass player who prefers to play guitar, banjo, foot drums and sing at the same time because it's easier than carrying a double bass through city laneways.
Lily and King are a very popular festival act with performances at Queenscliff Music Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, Queensland and Cygnet Fold Festival, Tasmania, to name a few.
