Lily Sparks / Bio

If Heart and Joan Jett had a baby and sent it to boarding school with Adele you'd get a hard rocking band with killer vocals called Lily Sparks!

First timers are never quite sure what to expect when they see a Lily Sparks show but after a few seconds it’s pretty clear: They rock. Flanked by glitter guitars that alternate between crunch and wail, the singer’s got a set of pipes that can go from fragility to fury in a heartbeat.

Lead vocalist Niamh (pronounced “neev”) is a vocal powerhouse brimming with passion and charisma. As a child in Ireland she sang traditional Irish songs, perfomed in choral groups and played lead roles in musical theater. She’s classically trained in voice and piano. But onstage she’s a rock diva.

KG* learned the guitar by joining a punk band. She plays solid rhythm and inventive leads blending elements of punk, pop, and classic rock.

Bassist Margaret La Bombard is quickly becoming one of the best known bass players in the scene. She keeps it grooving on the low end and sparkling on the top.

Drummer Mick Fumento has a degree in Jazz Performance from the University of Miami. When he’s not keeping time with Lily Sparks he’s making killer tomato sauce.

They’ve gone from playing a couple of acoustic shows in bars to playing at the Taubertal Music Festival in Germany where Niamh won the award for Best Vocalist. They've toured in London and Ireland earning praise and new fans from both their electric and acoustic performances.

Check out their new single, "Slaves of New York"!!!

As Gulf Coast Music Review proclaimed, “Lily Sparks puts the “FUN” back in Rock N Roll!”
