About Lili Refrain

Lili Refrain is an Italian one-woman band, juggling with guitar and composition, building her very own sonic perception of psychedelia. As a solo artist since 2007, she plays electric guitar, sings and manages loops in real-time, without using any computer or pre-recorded tracks. 

Her songs are created by overlapping sounds that combine minimalist repetitions to folk, psychedelia, blues, rock, metal, lyrical opera and guitar virtuosity. She uses percussion and synth to improve arrangements and to create a ritual experience.

 She self-produced three albums that received excellent reviews by music magazines and webzines: “Lili Refrain” (2007), “9” (2010) and “KAWAX” (2013). During these last years, she performed hundreds of shows over Europe. “ULU”, her latest release, is a live session created prior to the recording of her fourth upcoming album, coming out on March 20th via Subsound Records.
