So let’s go Dancin‘!

The Black Lillies’ 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 Contreras, bassist and vocalist Sam Quinn, drummer Bowman Townsend, guitarist/vocalist Dustin Schaefer and pedal steel player Jonathan Keeney, the Black Lillies are one of the most visible, viable groups in contemporary roots music.

Hard to Please, produced by Grammy winner Ryan Hewitt and recorded at Nashville’s legendary House of Blues Studio D, earned praise from Rolling Stone Country, NPR, American Songwriter and beyond, debuting at #12 on Billboard Heatseekers and #30 on Billboard’s Top 200 Country Albums. Entertainment Weekly praised the band’s “strong roots-folk songwriting, sweet harmonies, and charismatic indie spirit.”

The band has played the Grand Ole Opry dozens of times —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.”


What critics are about the Black Lillies:

“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

”The many strains of vintage country that collide in this rising band’s sound make The Black Lillies a crossbreed to watch.” —NASH Country Weekly

“A rootsy flair, mixing folk, honky-tonk country, and gospel into a winsome hybrid traditional enough to appeal to an Opry crowd and expansive enough to ensnare a broader audience.” —The Wall Street Journal
