The Americana/bluegrass music of the Sweet Lillies’ is, first and foremost, heartfelt and collaborative. Those defining traits are given life by the quartet of musicians who make up the Lillies: Julie Gussaroff, Becca Bisque, Dustin Rohleder, and Jones Maynard. Together they have combined their individual strengths to deliver powerful narratives of life in song. With their newly formed lineup of guitar, viola, upright bass, drums, and ethereal vocal harmonies that float like a dream, the Sweet Lillies’ music has a hard-hitting original flavor with a forward-looking eye. The Sweet Lillies have incorporated all of their cumulative life experiences into their music, song-writing, and artistry, crafting an uncommonly beautiful style they have christened “String-Americana” – a nod to the band’s all-encompassing musical tastes and willingness to experiment with genres. As Gussaroff explains, “Some musicians learn from teachers, some learn from family members, and some are self-taught. Some musicians are classically trained, some come up through folk, some draw from multiple springs, from hip hop through pop to bebop. In the Lillies’ all of these skill sets are valuable, relevant, and appreciated.”
