Lester Loves Lily (E25)

You are in for a treat! We have the gift of music chosen for us by singer, songwriter and enchantress, Lily Frost. Serendipity brought Lily to LTNF – a random FB message to and from and old friend (thank you Antoine!) about the show, e voilá… Lily and I are sorting out details for this show.

Such good fortune for our whole Lester the Nightfly family. We get to know this fun and smart Lily over the course of the show. And we hear her sonic pics and a few original tunes along the way. Lily Frost joins us on Lester the Nightfly – right here, right now.


A prolific songwriter, Lily Frost currently has 12 albums under her belt, under 5 different labels — Warner, Nettwerk, Aporia, Boxton and Marquis.  Lily Frost comes from the Montreal underground mod scene.  She moved to Vancouver and went from busking rockabilly to spearheading the Cocktail nation with her band The Colorifics who led the Blue Lizard Lounge scene throughout the 90’s. Lily then signed to Nettwerk as a solo artist before moving to Toronto where she was born. She has been working hard with Aporia and Marquis for the past decade. Lily is a dramatic, stylish performer who draws from the aesthetic of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the soundtracks of Quentin Tarantino, and the hot and bothered emotional drama that goes on between us fascinating humans.  The poetry of Rimbaud, the erotica of Anaïs Nin, and torch singers like Julie London and Juliette Greco all serve as strong influences.

Lily Frost has toured from Paris to Los Angeles and has shared stages with the likes of Pink Martini, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Coldplay and many more. Her awards include the Video Silver Sun through Bravo, a Gemini nomination for her theme song co-write for the hit TV series “Being Erica”, and Vancouver Female Vocalist of the Year in 2003. Lily’s songs have been frequently placed in TV shows and movies such as Grey’s Anatomy, Crazy Beautiful, Chevy Cobalt, Charmed, Felicity, and many more. Her efforts are now focused on her new Zoomer Radio radio show Zoomer Crooners and Songbirds as well as curating Big City Social, an event that combines swing, rockabilly, burlesque, dance and fashion.
