Her voice is salty – sweet – easy on ears as honey on the tongue. Her name is Lilly Schaffer and her disc “Lemonade” is just what it sounds like – a little complex – a little delicious – and completely refreshing.
Schaffer comes out of the gate like a sepia chanteuse spinning her ancient musical yarns through her own neo-modern filter. By the end of “Lemonade” we are slowly seduced into the singer/songwriter world of the 21st century.
“Lemonade” is a collection of smart – well-crafted songs by this veteran of Chicago’s open mic scene. She explores the standard questions of love and identity – but does so with wit and warmth meted out carefully so as to not distract from the music.
