Alice Spring’s Colin Lillie has had a whirlwind 2020, already playing Woodford, flying to the US for Folk Alliance festival and touring with Diesel, he’s gearing up for the release of his new folk injected EP Petrichor. Produced by tour mate Mark Lizotte, fans got the first taste with the release of “Hard Times” at the end of 2019. Colin Lillie now unveils “Broken” which finds the beauty in repairing yourself. To celebrate colin is set to play a headline show on Saturday 21st of March at the Wesley Anne in Melbourne.
“Broken” is a result of a co-write with Pip Norman (counter bounce) and Mark Pearl (texture Like Sun) whilst on a visit to Melbourne and urges people to open themselves up and ask for help as Lillie explains, “The song shares the power of letting go and opening up to another. Sadly there is too many friends and family who suicide due to feeling unable to share their darkness’s. My fear is that at this time there are many folks locked away in they’re heads due to all the recent devastation and as a result struggling to find the strength to ask for help.”
“Just like the Japanese art of Kintsugi, where repairing broken pottery with powdered gold, silver, or platinum brings more value to something which may have been thrown away when we share our pain we begin to repair ourselves. I believe its ok to be broken because it means I’m not perfect and with that comes my own uniqueness that makes me who i am warts and all.” – Colin Lillie
