Meet Lilly Phillips of Artis Entertainment Group

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lilly Phillips.

Lilly, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
For me personally, music has always been a part of my life without me even knowing it. I grew up being instantly entertained by the voices of people like Stevie Nicks. I began painting since before I can remember, which then leads to writing. That being said within regards to singing, it has always felt like a second nature to me. I used to always just sing along with my friends and not pay any mind to the voice I possessed. I did however have one friend who I used to freestyle on FaceTime for, not thinking anything of it. A year or two passed, and it wasn’t until my junior year of high school that Marcel Artis ended up opening his own studio called Artis Recording Studios. This then leads to me recording my first song, and us realizing we were doing a lot more than just passing time. It finally felt like I was where I needed to be. From there within a matter of months my life had and is still continuing to change.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I can certainly say it has not been a smooth road, but then again nothing ever is. I think for me personally, I have always felt too young for my mental age. That being said being young and as a woman I have grown accustom to when I am being respected or not. Yet it comes with anything you do. It’s important to remember that if your trying to pursue what you love, that what others view you as shouldn’t alter that. Not to mention that patience is a virtue and nothing happens overnight, you have to let time teach you what it intends to. For someone starting out, I would say use the tools you are given to your utmost advantage. It’s hard to move forward before you assess your current surroundings. In regards to location I believe it’s really what you make it.

Artis Entertainment Group – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Artis Entertainment Group is an Independent Record label group that my friend Marcel Artis started. The idea behind this label is to allow young aspiring artists of any talent to share and be given the tools necessary to expand their career. I am known as a singer/songwriter who has worked hand in hand with this group to help spread the word on both our behalves. I think what instantly sets us apart from others would have to be that we began all of this as friends first. Not to mention the impact we have made on both our careers in such a short period of time. Sharing a new sound of emotions and gaining a wave of listeners.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
I think I can say the proudest moment in my career so far has been being able to be introduced to so many influential people at such an early stage in my career. I am now only a senior in high school and have already had the opportunity to record in multiple studios located in LA. This was a huge step for me personally considering I am from Richmond, Virginia. That being said being able to experience so many new settings has only made me want to continue working even harder.
