Lilli Unwin moulds the ups and downs of navigating her twenties into a string of original songs that blaze and smoulder with bold femininity. Her debut release addresses the universal themes of love, longing and loss through honest and fearless female stories, propelling Jazz into a whole new dimension.
Learning through each season as you rise from the ashes,
navigating the storms and embracing the quiet. Lilli Unwin
