In 2014, Lilly released her first original song ‘Fade‘. The catchy tune showcases her voice and alternative pop genre, which she has been developing throughout her career. Currently, Lilly is still working on more of her music and says that she’s on her way to sharing new content with her fans! Exciting now isn’t it?
