Wanderlust musician Lilly Marshall makes debut with ‘Ocean Song’

Today, we’re excited to introduced brand new artist Lilly Marshall, who at just nineteen-years-old has released her debut single ‘Ocean Song’. Upon listening, you’ll be immediately struck by the finesse of this heartfelt and reflective track that showcases the young artist’s sweet, folk-tinged vocals and poignant songwriting. It was also recorded with Grammy-winning songwriter and producer Marc Swersky, which puts that extra stamp of professionalism on this career opening moment,

The song tells a story of accepting the limits of love and the importance of embracing the present moment. Marshall’s lyrics are introspective and relatable, and her delivery is both tender and powerful. The driving grooves and hook-laden melodies provide a sense of familiarity, reminiscent of influences like Grace Potter and Caamp, while the subtle folk elements add a unique touch to the sonic patchwork that is her sound.

‘Ocean Song’ is very in-keeping with the nomadic songwriter’s ethos for life: “My goal is to never regret. Any opportunity I get, I want to seize. Any place I can go, I want to go. I want to feel everything, from falling in love to gut-wrenching heartbreak. I don’t want to miss out on a thing because one day, I won’t be here. I just want my time here to be worthwhile.”

Another big part of Lilly Marshall‘s approach to music is her upbringing, one that was marked by her parents’ divorce, an event that has made her a resilient and independent person with a wanderlust spirit. Her experiences traveling across the country have infused her music with a sense of adventure and wonder, and her debut single is a tribute to her desire to embrace life fully. It’s a highly promising start and we can’t wait to hear what’s next.

You can listen to debut ‘Ocean Song’ in our Shades of Pop and Folk This Way playlist.
