Americana super group The Black Lillies return to the Big Room.

The Black Lillies’ story is still unfolding, with the band’s sharp, Southern-influenced songs — including Americana radio hits like “Hard to Please,” the kickoff single and title track from the band’s most recent album — leading the charge. Featuring multi-instrumentalist Cruz Contreras, bassist and vocalist Sam Quinn, drummer Bowman Townsend, guitarist/vocalist Dustin Schaefer, pedal steel player Jonathan Keeney and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist newcomer Haley Cole, the Black Lillies enter this chapter as one of the most visible, viable groups in contemporary roots music.

Proudly independent since their formation, the Black Lillies were one of the first independent bands to play the Grand Ole Opry and have since returned dozens of times — sharing that stage with big-budget bands and major-label mainstreamers. They’ve chased down success on their terms, ignoring the trends of Nashville and focusing on a sound that, as Vanity Fair notes, “continues to cross generations and musical genres – country, folk, blues and … a touch of the Dead, for good measure.” With new members, new songs and the same dedication to touring, the Lillies continue to sink their roots deep into the Americana landscape.

“Country music with a soul-rock infusion, supported by bandleader Cruz Contreras’ smart songwriting and tight musicianship that comes from years on the road.” — Rolling Stone

“One of roots music’s most talented outfits.” — American Songwriter
