New Lily Meola album! “They Say” (featuring Willie Nelson and Lukas Nelson)

Saturday, December 19th, 2015


Lily Meola has a new album out, “They Say” and it’ s no surprise that the Willie Nelson family’s fingerprints are all over it.  They are big fans and supporters of Lily and her talents.  Everyone who hears Lily Meola sing falls in love with her voice, including Annie Nelson who heard Lily sing on Maui, where both families live.   Lukas and Micah Nelson went to school with Lily’s brother, Matt Meola (also talented, not a singer but a pro surfer).  Annie  introduced Willie to Lily and her music at one of her local performances in Maui and the Nelson family have become cheerleaders for Lily and her music.

Willie and Lukas sing with Lily on her new album and Willie contributes some guitar gems on two other songs.  Micah Nelson has producer creds on the album and Annie Nelson supports the project too, but behind the scenes and out of the limelight.   And Kris Kristofferson duets with her on “Me and Bobby McGee.”   Jamey Johnson  invites Lily on stage to sing with him when they are sharing a festival anywhere.  Yeah, that’s the kind of recognition and acknowledgement she gets from other artists.

Thousands of us were first introduced to Lily Meola at Farm Aid in 2013, when Farm Aid President Willie Nelson invited the 18-year-old singer from Maui to perform with him.  They sang “Will You Remember Me”, and the video is below.  Her voice is so beautiful, timeless like the best of the best female vocalists from the 40’s and 50’s and ’60’s, every decade.   Willie also asked Lily to sing with him on his 2013 album, “To All The Girls.” And he can pretty much get anyone he wants to sing with him.  (Even Barbra Streisand — but where is that cut, Barbra?)

For those of us who don’t live on a tropical island, rather are here in frozen Colorado like me, we can get it on the world wide web from Lily’s website:

And Lily’s a really nice person, too, and her mom is great, too.  This is the kind of gift you want to give, the music you want so support — artists like Lily Meola.   This is where you want to spend your music money.  Buy her cd; you’ll thank me later.
