With nine original solo albums and three EPs to her credit, Toronto-based singer/songwriter Lily Frost is a beloved figure within the Canadian music scene. Over the course of those records, she has explored topics ranging from introspection and our connection to nature, to spirituality and psychology, all draped in poetic metaphor in genres including indie folk, pop, swing, western—all with a touch of sass. This, along with her sweet but dynamic voice and stage presence, has led to her loyal following, critical acclaim and songs being featured in high profile television shows such as Gray’s Anatomy and Workin’ Moms, as well as the 2001 Disney movie Crazy/Beautiful. In 2009, Lily earned a Gemini Award nomination as co-writer of the theme for CBC’s Being Erica.
But, like many of us, the fallout from the pandemic left Lily seriously questioning her future as a creative entity. Was there any point in carrying on if there were no opportunities to play shows? Was this the time to throw in the towel and move in a different direction?
As Lily searched for answers, loyal fans, promoters and her neighbour, producer Aaron Goldstein (Daniel Romano, Le Ren, Lee Harvey Osmond) convinced her she was a “lifer” and that there was so much music she still needed to share. Aarons’s drive convinced Lily to gather all the best songs from her overflowing arsenal and they set to work bringing together her raw and real piano-based material. The results are contained on Decompression, a Lily Frost album unlike anything else in her catalogue.
