The famous country music duo, Brooks and Dunn once said “if your world’s got somethin’ missin’, just put a girl in it”, and that’s exactly what Matt Williams sought to do in August of 2010. Matt thought his Christian band had everything until he realized that there was something missing. He soon came to the conclusion that the band needed a female voice. After placing an ad on Craigslist for a female vocalist and not receiving any feedback for several months, Matt decided he would take the ad down. That was until Ashley Patty sent him an audio clip of her vocals. Through email correspondence, the two scheduled a meeting along with Ashley’s husband and Matt’s wife and kids. Before too long, both couples realized that they would soon become one big family.
Ashley grew up singing country music, but decided to take a break to go to college and eventually marry the love of her life. After a severe health scare, Ashley realized exactly what she was put on this earth to do...sing.
After a few band rehearsals, Matt’s wife,Tara, noticed that Matt and Ashley’s harmonies resembled those of Lady Antebellum. Tara’s realization led Matt and Ashley to make a serious decision to break away from the Christian band to go country- as a duo.
Once November Lily was established, the duo began recording demos of original and cover tunes which quickly caught the attention of singer-songwriter, Jill Welch. Jill eventually introduced the duo to Nashville based producer and guitar slayer, Jim Kimball. Jim later recorded and produced November Lily’s debut 7 song EP in late 2011. When asked about his experience with the duo, Jim exclaimed, “Having the opportunity to produce November Lily was an absolute thrill. Matt and Ashley brought an undeniable chemistry to every stage of the process. There was a magic, right from the get-go... My primary job was stay out of the way and let that chemistry... shine through. These are wonderful people. They love making music and they're passionate about sharing that love. Just give a them a listen... and be prepared to celebrate, bust a gut, or shed a tear, because you're not only gonna hear it... you're gonna feel it!”.
November Lily relocated from Tulsa, OK to Nashville, TN in the fall of 2013. Since then, they have written countless new songs, performed in some of Nashville’s hottest singer/songwriter venues, and have continued to grow their fan base. November Lily, just like its name, has a unique sound unlike any other. The combination of Ashley’s vocal slides and her background in country music with Matt’s clean and simple take on melodies leaves country music fans awestruck.
Be on the lookout for their sophomore EP, set to be released fall 2014!
