Following their first public performance at the prestigious charity event ‘London Rocks’ at Cafe De Paris, the bands meteoric rise continued with a full set at Guilfest (alongside Jools Holland, Heaven 17 and ABC), culminating with a gig to 25,000 people at Belfast Pride.
Comprised of two beautifully contrasting lead singers Sera and Frankie, alongside musical talents of Wayne, Allan and Russ, Unsung Lilly’s wonderfully eclectic mix of stylistic influences have lead comparisons as ‘a modern day Fleetwood Mac’.
Originally a four-piece commercial covers band for many years, their rapidly increasing following lead them to be chosen to perform as part of the Royal Wedding celebrations in April 2011 to an estimated 300,000 people in Hyde Park.
As a result of the success of that performance, the band made the decision to start producing original material and the inception of Unsung Lilly’s exciting new music direction was complete following the addition of Frankie as joint lead singer.
Alongside their fantastic live set, Unsung Lilly released a series of fun & homemade iPhone videos, which were posted on YouTube and gained tens of thousands of hits from across the globe in just a few short weeks. Following this viral success of these online releases, demand for recorded releases grew from their rapid-expanding base of fans from around the world.

The debut EP ‘Time Changes Minds’ was released in October 2012 (with a re-mastered version taking over in April 2013), and the band’s first single ‘Happy’ was released in Jan 2013 with worldwide radio airplay. Their follow-up single ‘Just Be’ was released in May 2013 to universal acclaim, achieving over 200,000 views on YouTube in just a few weeks, and the band’s next release is the beautiful and haunting ‘I Remember’, released 1st Dec 2013.
