Bella & Lily is an original indie/pop band hailing from St. Louis. Sisters Bella and Lily Ibur compose and perform their own music. Bella sings and plays piano, guitar and ukulele. Lily sings, plays guitar, drums and mandolin. Featuring a distinctive indie/pop style, artists Bella & Lily have a natural flair for creating songs laden with pop hooks & gorgeous vocal harmonies.

Sisters Bella and Lily Ibur launched a successful 2013 Kickstarter campaign, catching the eye of producer Henry Hirsch (Lenny Kravitz, Madonna, Regina Spektor) at Waterfront Studios in New York, to produce their first album. Count To Ten. The duo has been recently working on new demo tracks with Nashville producer/writer Jamie Kenney (Five For Fighting) and Boulder producer/writer, Ted Bruner (Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus).

Bella & Lily have received radio play on nearly 200 college radio stations, and their album has been licensed to 14 different television programs on MTV, VH-1, Discovery and A&E. The band performed in Austin during the 2014 SXSW Music Festival and has performed in Nashville for ASCAP’s New Music Showcase. Bella & Lily headlined at this year’s PrideFest St. Louis in front of an audience of 30,000. They were also one of the featured acts at Fair St. Louis in 2014 to an audience of 10,000. Throughout 2015, Bella & Lily has been working on new material in Nashville, New York, and Boulder.

  • EXAMINER.COM, By Sarah Hayes, Feburary 4, 2014 “Bella & Lily have the grounded, deep vocals of Ingrid Michaelson, the atmospheric lyrics of Fiona Apple, and the instrumental aptitude of Sara Bareilles, but with a final product that is very much of their own unique making. Bella’s vocals dominate the album as does her writing prowess – a majority of the six tracks on “Count To Ten” are written by her – but when Bella & Lily sing together, these sisters show they can harmonize with the best of them.” –Sarah Hayes
