About

Who am I?     

I am a song weaver located in the mountains of Asheville, NC. The music that comes through me is rich with raw emotion, powerful melodies, and heartfelt lyrics that invite listeners into a deep space within themselves. With each note, my intention is to give voice to universal experiences that connect us all.  As I sing my truth, I hope that you remember yours. Emotional expression and authenticity are at the root of all that I do. I believe firmly in the power of music to heal, transform, and connect us as human beings and feel passionate about creating safe containers for people to access this power. 

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At this moment in time

                                     Life is calling me to show up
                                        in my fullest, deepest, most authentic expression,
                                        These songs, my truth, are calling to be shared, to be heard, 
                                        to be captured for more than a brief moment in time.

                                         As I step up to answer the call,
                                         I feel a mixture of elation and fear.
                                         I feel ready and also completely unprepared-
                                         I have never done this before.

                                      Yet, I am confident that as I take this leap,
                                         my community will catch me.


                                         The time of the Lone Wolf is over.
                                         The birthing of this album must be a communal effort.
                                         I cannot do it alone, nor would I want to, 
                                         so I am humbly asking for your support to bring this music to life.

                                         My intention is to complete the album within the next year.

                                         I know that I work slowly,
                                         with the rhythms of the moon
                                         and the turning of the seasons
                                         and so, will allow this creation to unfold
                                         with trust and sweet surrender to the process.

                                         I will share with you the process as new pieces come together
                                         and are ready to come alive.
                                         If you choose to contribute,
                                         you have the option to receive
                                         a piece of whatever it is that you helped to make happen:

                                         Perhaps a copy of the album you helped to record?
                                         Perhaps a print of the artwork you helped commission, or maybe                                              a sticker?
                                         Or maybe you'd benefit from a private Reiki session or music                                                      lesson                                                                                        
                                         Perhaps you' like me to come serenade you in your home?


                                         However you choose to participate,                                                                                          I want to share this exciting creative experience with you.

                                       We are made of Earth.
                                       This art is made of all of us.

  About Lillie:
                                             Lillie Kolman received her B.A. in Music Therapy from Appalachian State University with a concentration in classical voice and completed research focusing on the role of musical improvisation as a way to communicate emotions in special education classrooms. Emotional expression and authenticity are at the root of all that she does. She believes firmly in the power of music to heal, transform, and connect us as human beings and is passionate about creating safe containers for people to access this power.  
                                             Lillie works in Asheville as a music therapist, artist, and energy healer (facebook.com/peacelilyart). She offers private and group sessions to the community, as well as rehab centers, group homes, and schools and shares her music in small, intimate settings where she can connect deeply with her audience. 
                                             Her personal healing journey has involved the integration of music, movement, energy, symbology, mythology, play, nature connection, poetry, and visual art. She brings aspects of all of these to her practice and to the songs she weaves.
