Biography

When music goes beyond sound and makes you feel, that’s when you know you have heard something special. Lilia Amar’s style brings uncommon elements, a sweet raspy tone, on top of piano driven verses. Her approach is new and fresh and with catchy, pop hooks; Lilia’s lyrics are simple and contagious.

Born in Hamburg, Germany, Lilia moved to Fairfax, California when she was only 6 years of age, although it was the tender age of four when she showed an amazing love for dance. With a dad as a musician, it wasn’t surprising that Lilia soon emerged as an exiting singer and has been sharing her Pop/Rock sound for as long as she can remember. If you asked her what her sound is like, she might sheepishly say, Aretha Franklin, but she’s the first to admit that saying so is quite a stretch.

Playing both covers and originals, Lilia steadily works to improve her sound; something that she feels is rapidly getting better. Practicing constantly, she does everything in her power to conquer her craft and is willing to go the distance to make it all happen. Her style coupled with a strong stage presence is already gaining the respect of contemporaries and peers.

On November 18, Lilia performed Amy Winehouse covers in two sold out showcases, at the charming Larkspur Café, holding her own even among very experienced singers. Enthusiastic about moving forward and getting her career off the ground, Lilia is willing to do the work required to get where she wants to go.

With music as one of her greatest passions, her own personal favorite singers are Tom Petty, Ben Harper, Aretha Franklin, Christina Aguilera and Amy Winehouse to name a few. A regular teenager, she loves to celebrate her birthday, enjoys eating noodles, peas and French Fries and most of all loves gummy candy and chocolate that her Grandma sends from Germany. Like every other teenager, she enjoys sitting around with friends, talking, eating, hanging out at the local café drinking Chai Tea, dancing at parties and spending time with her cat Alistair. A young lady with many talents, she’s also well trained in Ballet, has taken hip-hop, belly dancing and salsa and she loves to draw.

Now, just sweet 16, Lilia signed with Imerge Records, an independent record label and is anticipating the release of her new single “Answer Me.” Although still quite young, Lilia is definitely a well-put together package, complete with voice, heart, beauty and talent.

Lyrics

Answer Me

Written By: Rockelle Morris and Shakila Flentroy

1st Verse: Why did you say goodbye, why did you make me cry
Why did you never pick up the phone, why did you stay gone so long
I wanna know why,
Why did you forget me, why did you desert me
Why did you come in my life, to just get outta my life
I wanna know why

I need to hear your answers, I haven’t seen you in years
Yes I know I might be angry but its better than tears

Chorus: Answer me there’s no need for sorry
Answer me don’t wanna hear forgive me

2nd Verse: How could you let me go, how could you never knowooo
How could you never take the time was I even on your mind
I wanna know why
Why did you leave me, did you ever need me
You act as if you don’t care it’s so much to bare
Why weren’t you there?

I need to hear your answers, I haven’t seen you in years
Yes I know I might be angry but its better than tears

Chorus: Answer me there’s no need for sorry
Answer me don’t wanna hear forgive me

Bridge: I deserve an expla’nation stop wasting my time
(Wasting my time)
Say your heart no longer loves me
And I’ll go on with my life

Chorus: Answer me theres no need for sorry (why wont u)
Answer me (stop wasting my time)
Answer me don’t wanna hear for give me
Answer me just answer me
Answer me

Make You Happy

Written By: Rockelle Morris and Shakila Flentroy

1st Verse: Why does everything I do for you goes without being seen
Is my best enough should I give up this stress is killing me
I tried to please you and hope you’ll need me
It’s hard to believe

Chorus: I will never make you happy
Cuz ya so hard to please

I will never make you happy
And I’m tired of trying

I will never make you happy
You’ll never be happy with me

2nd Verse: You don’t appreciate my love by showing that you care
Don’t wanna give up but I’m so fed up your acting so unfair
A simple thank you a warm embrace
Is all that it would take

Chorus: I will never make you happy
Cuz ya so hard to please

I will never make you happy
And I’m tired of trying

I will never make you happy
You’ll never be happy with me

Bridge: I just realized that I’m so unhappy, you’re so ungrateful
Baby, why can’t I please you
If your gonna hurt me I don’t need you ooooooo

Break Down: I will never make you happy
Cuz you’re so hard to please,
I will never make you happy and I’m tried of trying

Chorus: I will never make you happy
Cuz you’re so hard to please,
I will never make you happy and I’m tried of trying

I will never make you happy
You’ll never be happy with me
