Lily Maase

A graduate of the University of North Texas's esteemed Jazz Studies program, Lily Maase first fell in love with the guitar at the age of seven. In the decades since, she has performed and recorded as a jazz, classical, and rock guitarist, established herself as a highly sought-after private instructor and come into her own as a young and adventurous composer. As a leader, Lily has recorded two albums of her own music, Natural Disasters (2004) with the Lily Maase Quartet and aftermath (2005) with LM5 (…the lily maase quintet…). The Dallas Observer recently honored LM5 with a nomination for Best Jazz Group in their 2005 Music Awards, and aftermath was recently acclaimed as a “superior effort by a very talented composer” by AllAboutJazz.com. As a sideman, Lily has appeared with the University of North Texas 3 and 4 O'Clock Lab Bands, performed West Side Story with the Denton Musical Theater Company, become the primary classical guitarist for the Jeff Cook Ensemble, and worked with keyboardist R. C. Williams (Erykah Badu). She recently received a scholarship to attend the 2005 Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music, where she studied with Mark Dresser, Dave Douglas, Susie Ibarra and over a dozen other professional musicians. Lily currently lives in Brooklyn, New York, where she freelances, plays with her quintet and works with Walter Thompson's New York Soundpainting Orchestra.
