Album Notes
…”Lily Kiara doesn’t choose the common path, which makes this album wonderful to listen to. A record that reminds of the early works of Joni Mitchell or Suzanne Vega.”…


On This Ground is the second full solo album by Lily Kiara. Acoustic folk/pop with sometimes edgy vocal layers and the sporadic cornet by Felicity Provan with whom she often plays live as well, and electric guitar on the title song, by Andy Moor (The EX). Lily did all recordings and mixings of the songs. The album is mastered by Colin McLean.

Many songs were recorded and written in a 3 week period of great inspiration, in 2005. These were the first recordings Lily ever did herself (apart from earlier tape recordings and the occasional 4-track with friends). Although there was a lot of material, and it was also the first time she recorded poems, it took another 2 years for it to mature. Some of the first songs did not make it to the album. New songs were added to make the album to what it has become. That short intense period of writing and recording, created new ideas for future albums, as well as for the start of the label Sibyl Sings.

Some songs are often played live in concerts, such as Cradle Me, Smile, Inside of This and the title song On This Ground. Others never have been played live, such as Gabriel and Lost and Found, and so they are unique to the album.

The CD includes a booklet with lyrics of all songs. When you open the CD cover, the inside reveals a line out of the song 'World':

‘I close my eyes and make a wish to see’
