With the recent release of her highly anticipated, stylistically eclectic indie debut album Warrior Angel, Washington, D.C. based singer/songwriter L’illon does more than simply break genre and cultural barriers. The multi-talented visionary artist forges a groundbreaking path into a dynamic new realm she has coined as “Lucid Pop,” a modern sound that blends classical, world and pop elements and creates a musical mood unique from any other.
While L’illon likens her fusion of sonic colors “a kaleidoscope designed to get the listener to a place of destination,” one of her fans best expressed the way it’s making thousands of people feel: “sing along tunes with masterfully effective lyrics, Lucid Pop will not leave your memory.” ASCAP VP Ralph Murphy adds simply that it’s “really cool stuff.” When L’illon told Murphy about the unique crystallization of her songwriting—a process which begins by being open to impulses, emotions, people, and new experiences --he said, “You really are a different kind of muse.”
Throughout the ten tracks of Warrior Angel, L’illon’s compelling sound is intensely patterned, blending bass and guitar grooves, percussion rich beats, surprise string and wind riffs and an emotionally powerful vocal presence that pulls it all together. From the fast, hip swaying opener “Love Story” (a song about possibilities and surprises that sets the exciting uptempo groove) to the more intense mystical title track, and the enigmatic “Sweet Surrender” or the Lucid Pop tango “Tu Solo Tu” (that will get people dancing and romancing for hours), these songs create a musical vision focused on both today and tomorrow.
Rather than begin with music or lyrics first, she lets them merge together as she’s creating her incredible songs, “like the Tigris and Euphrates rivers coming together.” Beyond simply asserting her gifts as a multi-faceted songwriter with the ability to turn hard core rockers into pop fans, classical music lovers into Latin music aficionados, L’illon infuses the ten tracks on Warrior Angel—with a sense of empowerment that can inspire people in these uneasy times. Her belief is that in an era defined by financial uncertainty, music can—as it has been during past times of crisis—be a healing force that helps us feel individually and collectively better about ourselves. Her sound strives to openly address the highs and lows of life, portraying these with insight, compassion and resolution.
“Listening to Lucid Pop,” L’illon says, “you can feel a new spark of sensuality and vibrancy so that everyone can feel cool, modern, and sexy in their own skin”. She continues, “I like to think of it as part of a new musical revolution, drawing from ancient tones, melodic filagree, harmonic complexity, nostalgic old school, blues, pop, rock and modern grooves. I draw inspiration from the classical composers I admire like Verdi, Beethoven, Chopin, Rimski-Korsakov & Saint Saens, as well as modern songwriters like Prince, Jewel, Sting and U2. It’s important to fight for change that is good and I’m excited to share this new vibe of music with the world.”

Judging from the response to the songs on Warrior Angel, the world is quickly catching on and embracing the future of music as L’illon is creating it. Last May, the album won a RadioIndy “GrIndie Music Award” (Independent Artist Music Award - Best New Music 2009) and tracks from the album have hit #1 in 13 different music categories—totalling 23 #1s--on the influential site www.radioindy.com.“Warrior Angel,” “Thief of the Night,” “I Wonder” and “Love Story” hit #1 in the pop category, while “Warrior Angel” and “Smile Once More” went #1 on the International chart. The other genres include Soft Rock (“Sweet Surrender”), Latin/Spanish (“Tu Solo Tu”), Love Songs, World, Dance, Lounge, Contemporary, Country (an irrepressibly sensual shout out to a “Shy Guy”) and Fusion Pop. “Untouchable” was #1 on the licensing driven Advertisement chart, while “Warrior Angel” hit the top spot on the Film Music list.

Love Story

Written By: L'illon

Love Story
Music & Lyrics: L´illon 2008

I spotted you in the crowd, your eyes, your smile.
The way you looked at me, time stopped for awhile.

And now comes the moment of truth,
am I strong enough to step in front of you?
And now, you´ll see, what I´m made of!

Chorus:
Let me touch you, let me wonder,
how we could love each other.
In the evening, in the morning,
this could be our love story.

Let me touch you, let me wonder,
how we could love each other.
As the night breaks, and the light shines
this could be our love time.....love story....love story...oh..ah...

You came across the room, your steady gaze.
Standing still in my tracks, hoping for your embrace.

And now comes the moment of truth,
am I strong enough to step in front of you?
And now, you´ll see, what I´m made of!

Chorus:
Let me touch you, let me wonder,
how we could love each other.
In the evening, in the morning,
this could be our love story.

Let me touch you, let me wonder,
how we could love each other.
As the night breaks, and the light shines
this could be our love time.

Let me kiss you, let me hunger,
two lovers find each other.
That I chose you, let me see, must be my fantasy! Love story......

Chorus:
Let me touch you, let me wonder,
how we could love each other.
In the evening, in the morning,
this could be our love story.

Let me touch you, let me wonder,
how we could love each other.
As the night breaks, and the light shines
this could be our love time...love story....love story.... ah...

Let me , let me, let me, let me, let me, let me touch you…
Let me, let me, let, me let me, let me, let me wonder….
Let me touch you…

Warrior Angel
(L'illon) Songs Infinity Publishing (ASCAP)

You came to me,
when you saw my dreams turn to sand.
You gave me hope,
when you saw there was so much pain.
You embraced me, when I couldn´t stand.

Take me with you, show me the way
let me earn my wings.

You prompted me
when my heart spoke the truth.
You held my hand,
when I thought, I would lose.
You pass beside me, fighting,
making the first move.

Take me with you, show me the way,
let me earn my wings.
Take me with you,
let me stay to attach these wings.

Chorus:
I wanna be that angel, warrior angel
I wanna be that angel, warrior angel

You voiced my words,
when my mouth could not speak.
You were my eyes,
when I chose not to see.
Appear beside me, guide me,
when I fall weak.

Take me with you, show me the way,
let me earn my wings.

Chorus:
I wanna be that angel, warrior angel
I wanna be that angel, warrior angel

Warrior angel, warrior angel
Warrior angel, warrior angel....

I Wonder

Written By: L'illon

I Wonder
Music & Lyrics: L’illon 2008

Now that I’ve fallen in love,
for the third time in my life.
If I can’t have you, I’d rather die inside.
Things may come and go, but destiny is right here.
If I turn my back, I’d disappear into the air...
I wanna be your lover,
I wanna be your friend,
I wanna be the girl inside your life until the very end.

Chorus:
I wonder, who’s kissing you right now,
is she there for good, can I squeeze her out,
can I take her spot?
I wonder, who’s holding you at night,
does she comfort you, does she make you feel warm inside?
I could tell you right here right now,
she’ll never feel the way I do, you’d know it’s true.
You’ll just spend your whole life waiting, someday anticipating,
Cupid to save you.
I wonder......

How can I describe, love at first sight,
a picture perfect moment that lasts a life-time.
My lips are saying yes, my mind says take it slow.
I’ve got to just relax and let you know...
I wanna be your lover,
I wanna be your friend,
I wanna be the girl inside your life until the very end.

Chorus: (2x)
I wonder, who’s kissing you right now,
is she there for good, can I squeeze her out,
can I take her spot?
I wonder, who’s holding you at night,
does she comfort you, does she make you feel warm inside?
I could tell you right here right now,
she’ll never feel the way I do, you’d know it’s true.
You’ll just spend your whole life waiting, someday anticipating,
Cupid to save you.
I wonder......I wanna be your lover,
I wanna be your friend,
I wanna be the girl inside your life until the very end.

Untouchable

Written By: L'illon

Untouchable
Music & Lyrics: L'illon 2008

Thunderbolts come crashing down,
The ocean gods are frowning.
Poseidon dives in the sea,
My heart is pounding.
I'm spinning around,
Twirling around in my dream…..

The tide rolls in, the sand is wet,
Sirens stop singing.
I'm swept ashore by the foam,
my skin is tingling.
I touch my back
and feel some wings, in my dream…..

Chorus:
I'm flying high..
I'm untouchable, untouchable.
You can´t read my mind...
I'm untouchable, untouchable!

The clouds move in, the stars are set
Olympus is sleeping.
I move my hands, begin descent
as daylight starts creeping.
I'm spinning around,
twirling around in my dream…

I spot the land that meets the sea,
the waters seem mighty.
A gentle glide, land-fall at night;
my eyes open widely.
Now fully awake, I won't hesitate
to relive my dream.

Chorus:
I'm flying high.. I'm untouchable, untouchable.
You can't read my mind… I'm untouchable, untouchable!
I'm flying high..
Can't pull me down....

I'm flying high.. I'm untouchable, untouchable.
You can't read my mind… I'm untouchable, untouchable!

Thief of the Night

Written By: L'illon

Thief of the Night
Music & Lyrics: L’illon 2008

It ain’t that hard to see,
that I’m a woman in need.
For a tender touch of the third degree,
some soft words that will comfort me.

If this seems strange to you,
as you stand without a clue.
Lean in and I’ll whisper it to you,
I’ll reveal some of my hidden truths.
But before I do, I’ve got to ask you….you

Chorus:
Are you the thief of the night,
who will steal my heart and soul?
After you’ve taken what’s mine,
are you coming back for more?
If you’re the thief in my life,
take off your gloves, unmask yourself.
All that is mine, I’m keeping for myself.
Are you the thief, the thief of the night?

Should you make claims on me,
the price is quite hefty.
When I give, I want things in return,
I’ll keep a part of you, then I won’t get burned.
But before I do, I’ve got to ask you….you

Chorus:
Are you the thief of the night,
who will steal my heart and soul?
After you’ve taken what’s mine,
are you coming back for more?
If you’re the thief in my life,
take off your gloves, unmask yourself.
All that is mine, I’m keeping for myself.
Are you the thief, the thief of the night?

If you are who you say and your face reveals the truth, show me yourself,
you’ve got nothing then to lose.
If you are who you say, and your words express the truth, tell me again,
Thief of the night

Thief of the night, thief of the night
Thief of the night, thief of the night
