Lily Frost, born Lindsey Frost Davis, is a Canadian independent singer-songwriter from Toronto, Ontario. Bilingual in French and English, she is a cross-genre, multi disciplinary singer/songwriter/performer and recording artist. She also designs jewelry, teaches yoga and vocals.

Born in Toronto, she studied jazz at Concordia University in Montreal and honed her craft in Vancouver as the lead singer of the lounge band The Colorifics, and then signing as a solo artist to Nettwerk Records. She then moved back to Toronto where she has released six records with Aporia/Outside and one with Marquis/EMI.

Career[edit]

Frost started writing at age 14. She started putting melodies to a poetry at 19 years of age. She left her music degree after two years to hit the road and has been working as a singer-songwriter, performer and recording artist ever since.

She moved to Vancouver with a bunch of Quebec garage rockers in 1993 and busked on the street with a swingabilly band called The Colorifics. Eventually they moved up into playing art galleries, parties and concert halls building a groundswell and a considerable West Coast following over the next four years.

Upon return to Toronto, Frost met and married José Miguel Contreras of By Divine Right in 2003. They went on together to write, record, produce, engineer and perform her next five records.

Frost's fourth album, Cine-Magique, was released in 2006. It was produced by Contreras.[1]

Her seventh studio recording is Do What You Love, released October 2, 2012.[2]

She is working on a book called The Subterreanean Jungle Book, about the underground westen swing legend Ray Condo who passed away in 2004. She dedicated an album to Condo called Lily Swings.
