Biography

“I will go to the United States and have a music career there”, LiLi told her friends as she was just 14.
Singer-songwriter-producer LiLi Roquelin's clear and captivating voice enchants listeners world wide. Her talent to spin melodies around in her head until they become infectious and addictive songs brings the listener back for more and more. With her true, poetic and melancholic bilingual lyrics and the depth of emotion in her voice, LiLi stands as a musician who has a soul to share with the world. Often referred to as the hardest working artist around, her passion and determination provide her with the strength to achieve her dreams. She left Home -France- for Music... This fashionable female singer is known on the music scene to have a unique and beautiful voice that compliments her self written, catchy, yet deep songs. Her alluring character combined with her stage presence, her natural charisma makes her irresistible to any audience.
Growing up with a multi-instrumentalist father, she learned music as it was all around her. She has been doing music actively since Middle School: from recording lead and back-up vocals in solo or in duet for side projects or albums, to programming, and performing live with numerous bands. Her skills in PR and marketing support her constant presence in the music industry, getting press, TV, radio interviews and airplay of her songs in the US, Europe and Japan.
She released "A Taste of Departure" as the lead singer/writer of her first American pop-rock band, Phizzy Lager. She then quickly proved her professionalism in Cleveland - home of rock’n’roll - when she joined the established alternative-rock band Hate Dies Hard and recorded the album “Neverending Sundown” at Mars Studio by Bill Korecky, who then recommended her to composer/producer Sean Bilovecky. She works with him on a side project and the song “I Saw You” is born.
Now a solo artist, she settles into a progressive electronic sound. Pushing herself to living music to the fullest, she moves to New York City and writes her own projects in her studio, and performs live on the piano. Entirely funded by fans, her current EP was mixed and mastered by three-time Grammy Award winning engineer Marc Urselli and it includes her Multi-Award-Winning music video for "I Saw You". "Blues Alone" is getting radio airplay across the US. See webpages for Tour dates, galleries and press links.

Lyrics

Your Imagination

Written By: LiLi Roquelin

YOUR IMAGINATION

When I’m sleeping on a train
The motion picture can play
With the drama and the script
When the scenery arises
I wake up with a smile
Oooh

If you keep your imagination safe
Soon you’ll realize
It’s faster than your words can speak
If you keep your imagination safe
Soon you’ll realize
It’s faster than your mind can think
It’s faster than your self can breathe

You life can eat you away
The same round everyday
Look at what date it is
When the shiniest sun rises
Don’t sleep on the running time (repeat)
Ooh

Chorus

Je voudrais peindre le paysage
Ajouter a ce gris un peu de bleu rivage
Du noir et blanc passer a la couleur
Et donner a la vie un peu plus de bonheur

If you keep your imagination safe
Soon you’ll realize
It’s faster than your heart can beat.

Blues Alone

Written By: LiLi Roquelin

BLUES ALONE

Is it the only night you cry cos I lied
What did you do again to deserve this
I know you'll never go and I don?t know why
And it's putting me down
And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

I got the blues alone
Is it such a bad thing?
Noone's here to help
So I will just complain, again and again
I got the blues blown,
Is it a terrible thing?
Noone's here to tell
Another time again, again and again.

All the reasons why I sigh everytime
On my way you place something bad
I know you'll never grow and I don?t know why
And it's putting me down
And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

Chorus

Bridge:
And I'm scared of this too
I don't care what you gonna do?

I got the blues alone
Is it such a bad thing?
Noone's here to help
So I will just complain, again and again
I got the blues alone again
When noone's here, noone's here, noone's here to help
Is it a terrible thing?

DARE

Written By: LiLi Roquelin

DARE

N'est-ce pas assez clair?
Tu prends ton chemin, un nouveau depart
Meme s'ils n'ecoutent toujours pas
Il n'y a rien d'autre a faire
Ecris-toi une liste
De ce que tu desire
Meme si tu pars demain

It always seems to be the end
Everything hoped suddenly falls
It's not supposed to happen
I have to find a way to leave
This place of paleness and grieve
And remain forever the dreamer
the dreamer

It's not always fair
Just take a new start, a brighter path
Even if they still don't listen
Is there anything to dare
Write down a whole list
The things you wish to live
Even if you're not a trend

It always seems to be blend
When something good has an aftertaste
There's no shortcut to make it happen
You have to know this evidence
You're not happy and maybe tense
Just remain forever a dreamer
A dreamer

It's not always fair
Just take a new start, a brighter path
Even if they still don't listen
Is there anything to dare
Write down a whole list
The things you wish to live
Even if you're not a trend

N'est-ce pas assez clair?
Tu prends ton chemin, un nouveau depart
Meme s'ils n'ecoutent toujours pas
Il n'y a rien d'autre a faire
Ecris-toi une liste
De ce que tu desire
Meme si tu pars demain

I Saw You

Written By: LiLi Roquelin

Forever on the road you stand
The little town where you stay strong
All alone you walk…
Are you at peace in this land?
ooh

I know
All your reasons
They carry the tides to enlighten
I saw you.

Forever you lay on the sand
Near the ocean where you belong
All alone, you talk…
Are you scared to make a plan?

I know
All your passions
They bury the past to enlighten
I saw you.

I understand:
You're in your Mother Land…

I know
All your passions
They bury the past to enlighten
I saw you.

I saw you
Living the life you care
I saw you
Living the life you care.
