Lilith Ai is going to be a megastar pretty soon, so can we just state for the record that we loved her very much before she was famous? We loved her when she first came and played for us in a smelly basement in Brixton, we loved her big time when she turned up to play LOUD WOMEN Fest 2 with a cake she baked for us, and you’ll all love her when she plays the hello out of LOUD WOMEN Fest 4 on 14 Sept – catch her at 5pm on the Boston Music Room stage. (Also – Fun Fact – Lilith’s mum is doing our catering this year. Vegan Creole food – and if her mum’s gumbo is as good as Lilith’s cakes, we’re all in for a massive treat.) Here’s her pre-Fest 5 Question Interview.
1. For people who’ve not seen you play live before, what can we expect from you at LOUD WOMEN Fest?
Chill vibes. I try to make connections when I play so people see me within themselves. And we can be like “same”.
2. Fill in the blanks…
“Our sound is like the lovechild of Tracy Chapman and Lauryn Hill with a bit on the side from Sonic Youth”
3. Give us your artist manifesto in no more than 20 words.
I do the best I can till I know better, then I do that.
4. Who are you most looking forward to seeing play at LOUD WOMEN Fest?
There are so many bands this year coming from abroad. I wanna see all of those because I may not get the chance again. And also Hurtling, because I’ve never seen them.
5. What made you want to play at LOUD WOMEN Fest?
Because it’s awesome.
