Beneath the ghetto gloom of a North England ex mining area, psychedelic soul artist, Jilly Riley, poetically fuses colours of funk, blues, rock and world soul, creating a heterogeneous musical stew spiced with love, freedom and a dash of activism.

Combining individualism and passion, Jilly has delivered soul to many stages across the country, performing at countless festivals and venues, alone and as a special guest, opening shows for progressive rock legend Martin Barr of Jethro Tull, 1973 chart toppers The Strawbs and British Blues Award winner Rebecca Downes. She headlined Limetree Festival in 2011 as a vocalist for funk soul band “The Limetree Family Affair”, a medley of world acclaimed musicians including Dan Goldman (Morcheeba) and Frank Benbini ( Fun Loving Criminals). After performing on stages of all sizes in many situations and types of venue, Jilly’s favourite stage is still that of a grass based tent at a little hippie festival somewhere quiet and cosy where she can play acoustically, barefoot, to her hearts content!
