Lilly Boughey is a 17 year old Shropshire singer/songwriter and performer from Market Drayton. She is the middle child of three and grew up on a diet of Daryl Hall and John Oates, The Beatles, Marvin Gaye and Van Morrison. A writer of poetry, Lilly found inspiration from everyday and real life experiences. She realised she could pen her own lyrics to go with songs she had composed. With a unique and haunting voice, very much her own style, she started to perform gigs at the age of fifteen and is currently gigging weekly at many varied venues and events.
Lilly is hoping to study Music Performance and songwriting at The Liverpool Institute Of Performing Arts in September. Lilly is also a student at Song Lab in Birmingham where she has learnt to hone her skills as a songwriter Lilly records all her own material but has a real passion in performing live.
