Bella & Lily
Featuring a distinct style of their own, indie/pop artists Bella & Lily
have a natural flair for creating catchy songs with meaningful and relevant lyrics.
Bella & Lily, a sister act of Bella and Lily Ibur, has concocted the perfect minicollection of indie pop-rock songs on its debut album, “Count to Ten.” …The album is peppered with radio-friendly tunes — in the mode of Vanessa Carlton or Sara Bareilles — such as “What They Don’t Know,” “Messed Up Avenue” and “Circus.”
—Kevin Johnson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch Music Critic
Bella and Lily have both shown to have high-quality songwriting skills. As a producer for many years, my assessment is that they are both prolific way beyond their age. For me, it’s exciting to help develop young talent. Their work ethic was put to the test and they stayed focused during the pre-production and recording production. They value the principle of not depending on computers for their recordings, but getting things right by performance. For today’s computer generation, that’s what really stands out for me.
—Henry Hirsch, producer (Lenny Kravitz, Madonna, Mick Jagger)
Opening the show were local duo Bella and Lily, a sister act with tremendous vocal ability and a vibe of Sara Bareilles and Fiona Apple. The sisters, though young, showed their extremely talented ability.
