Lily Frost – Retro-Moderne

Canadian singer-songwriter Lily Frost is a native Torontonian who studied music as Concordia Univeristy in Montreal. She began her career in a typical way playing small lounges in the 90s. Her music caught the attention of fans and those in the industry, as well. As such her music was featured in popular television shows like Felicity, Grey’s Anatomy, Charmed, and Degrassi, naturally. On top of that she also earned a Gemini nomination for the theme song and score for the Canadian show Being Erica.

After signing to Nettwerk Records, Frost moved to Toronto and there she changed labels, signing to Aporia Records. She has now self-released her latest album, Retro-Moderne. It is her 15th album either solo or with a group. With each she has brought us something new. New in tone and sound. Retro-Moderne continues along that path.

Produced by Gus Van Go, who was the lead singer of Montreal ska band Me, Mom and Morgentaler, he has worked with The Stills, Whitehorse, Jill Barber and Terra Lightfoot. Upon first listen we are transported to the decade of the 60s. You will harken back to girl groups of that era. Between her and the musicians there is a chemistry which you don’t often get and Van Go has captured that. It is a pop album with plenty of other flairs. Completing the sound is her wonderful vocals and well-written lyrics.
