Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt -

          Holbrook's true talent as a vocalist and a songwriter were starkly obvious on a cold Tuesday evening last month, when she played for a packed crowd at Sky Bar in Somerville. In a ruffled crimson top, black skirt, and black fishnet stockings, with a black silk flower behind her ear, Holbrook resembled a 1940s jazz singer. The crowd was reverently quiet as she sang, frowning and squinting downward, as though getting out the songs was a physically demanding process. On the subway she's a captivating voice, on her albums a girl with a point, but onstage she's the whole package.

          Holbrook finds ways to shake free from predictability.

          Let's be honest here: sometimes farmers' market performers can leave much to be desired.Lily Holbrook was different.I was entranced, and her music was absolutely lovely. Upon returning home, I found out that she has entranced listeners nationwide.

       She's got melodies and something to say and a compelling voice, and she wants to rock out sometimes, and I'm in favor of all these things.

        Lily's got that real effortless, piercing, soaring thing going on -- like whoa.

        The songwriting recalls the grrl-rock and songstress era of the mid-'90s well, possibly with more writing ability.
