When Lilly Brüchner - alias lilly among clouds from Würzburg- sits down on the piano, she writes great popsongs. Harmonious, but leaving you with this big lump in your throat. Majestic, but without any sobby stuff. Like a collage - dramatic, diverse, open wide. Within billow beats or E- Guitar waves creating a warm deep space, Lillys voice arises in a golden light. And what kind of voice that is!
Producer Udo Rinklin (for example #1 German Album Charts album for German artist Laith Al-Deen) and the artist realised quite soon, that lilly among clouds journey is fare beyond a single and classic Singer/Songwriter-lady on the Piano. It is wide screen pop, it is self-awareness and self-doubt and it is this kind of quality which definitly does not sound like anything from a german provincial backwater.
