UMMA Pop Up: Lily Talmers

.Everyone and their cousin is trying to become a folk singer these days— Lily Talmers is no exception. Hailing from metro Detroit, and now a student in Ann Arbor, her songwriting is introspective and often cutting, drawing mostly from the 60's folk tradition. She is a singer, and multi-instrumentalist, accompanying herself on guitar, piano, and clawhammer banjo. Her writing technique is delicate, in which she intermingles the political and the extremely personal. Inspired by writers such as Gillian Welch, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and Andrew Marlin (of Mandolin Orange), she perfectly balances the lyrical "heaviness" with a lightness in voice and accompaniment.
You can find her on Instagram, Facebook, and check her out on Spotify.
