Biography

Lead Lily Kurt Heasley is a musical chameleon of sorts, changing his look and sound with nearly every release. The Lilys' kaleidoscope started in 1991 with "February 14," a nod to Dinosaur Jr.'s sound. Soon after, the band changed hue with In the Presence of Nothing -- a thick dose of My Bloody Valentine's Loveless-era rock with plenty of distorted guitars and swirling vocals. Two years later, they were straightforward Power Pop with the EP "A Brief History of Amazing Letdowns." The following year saw Eccsame the Photon Band -- Heasley was maturing as a musician, writing more meticulous numbers that relied on creating ambience rather than songs that rushed from start to finish in a wash of noise. The 1996 Better Can't Make Your Life Better embraced the Kinks' British Invasion sound. After a two-year disappearance, Heasley returns with The 3-Way. A rotary of musical currents with sensible guitars and lush keyboards combines with Heasley's lowercase vocal for a profoundly rich pop sound.
