Film Composer || Songwriter
Lillie is a composer and songwriter for films, television, documentaries, video games, and other media. She scored Radium Girls, starring Joey King (The Act, Fargo) and Abbey Quinn (Landline, Black Mirror), co-directed by Lydia Dean Pilcher and Ginny Mohler, and premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in 2018. Recently, she wrapped on Liberté: A Call to Spy, directed by Lydia Dean Pilcher and starring Stana Katic (Castle, Absentia), Radhika Apte (The Wedding Guest), and Sarah Megan Thomas (Equity).
Her compositions incorporate elements of indie pop, atmospheric electronic music, traditional orchestral repertoire, and European and American folk influences. A pianist, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist with a passion for unusual instruments, she blends live acoustic, orchestral, electronic, and sound design to fashion a unique sound for each project.
Lillie graduated from New York University with a Master’s degree in Music Theory and Composition and a concentration in Scoring for Film & Multimedia where she currently works and teaches film scoring as an adjunct professor.
She is also a trained visual artist and sells her encaustic paintings around the United States. As a performer, she sings, plays piano, accordion, glockenspiel, and hammered dulcimer with her indie folk band, The Long Run, and her synth pop girl band, ALMA, around New York City and the surrounding areas.
Lillie is continually inspired by music's power to amplify a story’s emotional depth and meaning. She believes that music in media can open doors to all kinds of narratives with empathy. It is her mission to harness this power through entertainment and connect audiences to stories of purpose that may expand their experience of the world.
