Stella and the Reptilians lead singer Lily Morgan is a singer/songwriter from Chester, New York. Lily started Stella and the Reptilians after having a brief solo career. The band’s atmospheric alt indie vibe has captivated everyone who listens. Lily’s unofficial releases include a mix of spacious synth sounds highlighting her upper register and the high sweet tones in her voice. She uses a variety of lyrics in her songwriting that incorporate lots of imagery that make you experience her songs with her. Lily’s vision for her band expands everyday with the opportunities that are presented to them. Since the band formed during the Covid-19 pandemic they have had to be creative when it comes to performing and really gaining traction but it has not stopped them. Stella and the Reptilians will continue to put their good energy, vibes and music out into the world especially during the hardest times when they feel their audience needs it most.
Lily’s musical journey has been nothing short of a catchy, lyrical take on the indie-folk sound. Hailing from Poland, Maine, lead, Nick Santos’, music encapsulates that feeling of being cold with an overlying contention of being at peace with it. The folky, guitar-driven sound is met with the lively feel of indie-pop, whilst retaining a genuine “DIY or die” aesthetic by recording and producing the music himself. It’s an honest reflection of personal feelings and gut instincts, but it’s caked in an amusing light that makes it easy for the listener to digest. Lily’s debut ten-track album, “Honesty Hour,” is set to be released on all platforms April 30th!
