We love celebrating talent, especially extraordinary up-and-coming girl talent. 🎙
So we're thrilled to confirm Tilly Vickers-Willis, a 17-year-old amazing musician from Melbourne, as part of our talent-studded lineup for the @girledworld SUMMIT at the University of Melbourne on SUNDAY JUNE 25 (Early Bird Tickets selling now here!)
Playing piano, guitar and singing for most of her life, Tilly started writing songs around the age of 5 and turned to it as a serious craft aged just 12.
Says the songwriter: "My songs form out of necessity and reflect my careful observations of the world around me, exploring ideas such as youth, societal expectations, young love, nostalgia and an exploration of political & world issues."
Her big, bold and haunting sound is acoustic and simple, inspired by strong female artists such as London Grammar’s Hannah Reid, Missy Higgins, Lorde, and Isabella Manfredi, and to date Tilly has performed at a range of events and backyard gigs including scoring her first radio gig on 3AW with Billy Pinnell, Grubby and Dee Dee last month.
You can lose yourself in her sound on soundcloud at soundcloud.com/tillyvw
