BOOKING & MANAGEMENT
Lila has always stood out from the crowd – In substance, style and appearance she has never been average. Born with “ultra sound sensitivity”, Lila’s experience of the world around her has been quite out of the ordinary, and very much sonically based. Lila is both blessed and afflicted with sounds that most people cannot hear; while this is a gift when it comes to making music, it can also lead to great personal discomfort at times…
Lila Rose began her ascent to music stardom five years ago in her native Canada. Two singles with GRAMMY winning producer Pete Prilesnik (Great Big Sea, Ashley MacIsaac, Sarah Harmer) earned Lila some attention, but due to business concerns never received the push they deserved. However a trip to the US West Coast led Lila to what would become her second home, and the launch point of the next phase of her career: San Francisco. It was here that Lila’s first EP, Osmos Your Sonica, was born in 2009, but that was just an appetizer for what was to come next.
On January 10th 2012, Lila released her full-length album, Heart Machine, which she co-produced with David Earl (aka SFLogicNinja.) A masterpiece of sound, song craft and technology, Heart Machine bends the genres of Electronica, Indie pop, trip-hop and alternative rock around an emotional core, finding a critical musical mass that is explosive in its intensity and brilliant in its light. Lila writes from the well of her experiences, building on the pain of human existence to create songs that speak to the human heart. Out of each shadow she culls light, uplifting, inspiring, and offering hope in lieu of even the greatest challenges of the heart, soul and mind.
Lila isn’t content with simply breaking new ground. Although she just released HeartMachine, she is already planning her next solo project: a stripped-down acoustic work that displays the heart and soul of her stirring songwriting style. An emo-tronica EP with collaborator Eric Denniston is also in the works, due to be released under the name SoHeart in the winter of 2012. For Lila, the music never stops; it is a way of understanding the world around her. She transforms her experiences into song, and transcends the darkness that so long kept her at bay.
Lila Rose radiates ebullience on stage. There is a beauty to her that is neither physical nor effable; a glow that emanates from deep within. It shines through her music like a beacon for all who have been lost, yet retain hope and faith enough to see. With a voice that rings out of the darkness like the first probing beam of dawn, Lila makes an indelible
