Play My Twice started with Virginia's vision of "bluish purple songs with silver-gold shimmers". The accomplished singer-songwriter blends honest lyrics and indie folk/pop styles with subtle world grooves; sometimes singly high and ethereal, sometimes her voice reaches low and sensual but always singing authentically, present to her audience.
Virginia’s inspiration behind this album was “exploring how vulnerable and intimate can I get.” The album is a poetic ode to life; a confessional landscape of lyrics and shimmering sounds. Listeners are invited to walk into this world with Virginia as she releases the audiovisual album in a series of music videos shot live during the recording sessions at Studio 42 with producer and collaborator Alessio Romano and even have their questions about Play Me Twice answered in the accompanying podcast via social media or texting her music phone directly at: +1-917-746-0723.
Following the release of her self-titled debut EP in 2014, Lily Virginia has explored her artistic vulnerability with unapologetic force for live audiences throughout the U.S. Playing at venues including NYC's BAM, Rockwood Music Hall, Highline Ballroom, and beyond in California, Boston's Club Passim, Philadelphia's World Cafe Live, Austin's SXSW and even Puerto Rico, Ms. Virginia sings out her stories and lays herself bare.
