With a diverse and unique blend of musical influences, Lilly Ahlberg has carved her path in the music industry, becoming known for her distinct style that seamlessly fuses contemporary pop
elements with soulful undertones. The Anglo-Swedish artist started her career sharing acoustic covers on YouTube, then later released several well-received scandi-pop singles. Soon after this initial success, collaboration requests began, and Lilly found herself working with electronic music artists like Sondr, VIZE, GotSome and Sonny Fodera. The latter gave rise to the popular club track ‘The Moment’ – igniting her passion for crafting dark, dreamy dance tracks.
The multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter Lilly Ahlberg recently arrived on Destructivo, a sub-label of the esteemed Tileyard Music group, with her new single, “Cold”. We asked Lilly for “UR 10 Questions”
