Introducing: Fenne Lily

Not many young artists can count up a massive 20 million+ Spotify streams off the back of the first song they’ve ever written, but then again, not many young artists are Fenne Lily. Raised in the wilds of rural Dorset, the 20-year-old talent first picked up the guitar aged fifteen and quickly found she was a natural.

Just one year later and she’d written the delicate but powerful ‘Top To Toe’, which deftly tackled social anxiety over softly picked guitar; a song about bleak adolescence that almost everyone could relate to. Self-released, it saw the young unknown attract global attention for her sublime songwriting ability and sharp emotional intelligence, as well as her gifted way with melody. British fashion house Burberry came knocking on her door and asked her to perform for them in Paris, thanks to the song’s subtle channelling of Laura Marling, as well as the swooning sound of Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten and underground 1960s psychedelic greats like Linda Perhacs.

Fenne’s sound was elegant, addictive and blowing up the hype machine. Now, though, she’s gearing up to release her debut album and proving she’s much more than your typical acoustic songwriter.
