Virginia Lillye

For some, rebellion is running away to join a band, for the diminutive singer and all-round performer “Virginia Lillye”, childhood rebellion was getting a proper job!
“Music is in my blood, my mother was a singer and dancer and my father was a bass player. I grew up on the side of stages, sucking away on my pacifier absorbing what was eventuating around me, a life of performing”. “I broke out of the mould when I was about 17 and worked in a bank and a clothing store, by the time I was 19 I realised I was a fool and got back into the scene again, since then I haven’t looked back.”

Explosive and dynamic vocalist Virginia Lillye has wooed audiences across Australia and internationally. Having shared the stage with Gene Simmons (KISS), Richie Kotzen (Poison), Gilby Clarke (Guns ‘N’ Roses), Dave Gleeson (Screaming Jets), Angry Anderson (Rose Tattoo), Mark Gable (The Choirboys), Steve Balbi (Noiseworks), Alex Smith (Moving Pictures), John Butler, Dan Sultan, Irwin Thomas (Southern Sons), John Paul Young, Paul Grey (Wa Wa Nee), Jon English, Wendy Matthews, Grace Knight, Phil Emmanuel, Peter Northcote, Brett Garsed (John Farnham), Bob Spencer (The Angels), Dave Leslie (Baby Animals), Dario Bortolin (Baby Animals). Ciaran Gribbin (INXS) to name but a few…. she is a force to be reckoned with.
