Lily Sparks / Press

“a hot highly driven band featuring the powerful vocals of Niamh. Whether you are taking in the driving force in Stars, listening to Let Go, Walk Away, Where Are We Today or The Girls you will enjoy them all. In fact you will want to hear more of their music. The musicianship is excellent. You can tell that this band is not a studio creation. Once you listen to Lily Sparks on CD you will want to see them live.”

“Lead by the simply stunning Niamh on vocals, this band are great and are truly going somewhere. Niamh sings like a cross between Patti Smith and Joan Jett at their best. She struts like the queen of New York City and she means it.”

“Rock & roll, baby!!! That’s what you’ll find on Cooper Cobra, the debut EP of New York band Lily Sparks. No samples, loops, or weird electronica, just guitar-heavy, punk-influenced songs about having a good time. The tried and true formula works like a dream. The instrumentation is tight and the range and depth of lead vocalist Niamh (pronounced “neev”) is astonishing.”

“The wail of the guitars, the smooth sound, with just a touch of raspiness, of the vocalist, the chord progressions and infectious riffs, it's all there... Lily Sparks puts the “FUN” back in Rock N Roll!”

““Where Are We Today” is my favorite song on this album! I mentioned earlier that I fell madly in love with Niamh’s voice–this was the track where it happened. This girl has some pipes on her! I compared her to the likes of Ann Wilson and Janis Joplin, but in my opinion she blows them away! She very seriously could be one of the best female rock singers of our time.”

“Lily Sparks is a tight band following in the footsteps of Heart and 4 Non Blondes who knows how to ROCK. These girls write great songs filled with melodic and instrumental hooks.”

“In a world of Pussy Cat Dolls and Miley Cyrus(s), Lily Sparks stands out as one of a very few female-fronted, honest-to-God rock ‘n’ roll bands. Their new EP, Cooper Cobra, is a tantalizing taster of what looks to be a big future for this band.”

“What do you get when you cross Pat Benatar with Chrissie Hynde, add a bit of Linda Perry and a dash of Lita Ford? You get Lily Sparks with a twist. Women of rock ‘n’ roll take heed. Lily Sparks has come out swinging with their album Cooper Cobra. ”

“From the very first guitar riff on Cooper Cobra, the listener quickly realizes this isn’t your typical debut EP. Full of energy, Lily Sparks’ lead vocalist Niamh has a certain rocker quality that peaks interest...Lily Sparks is one band to watch.”

Annie Reuter - Review You

"In a music scene where shock-poppers, like Lady Gaga, and girl rockers, like Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift, attract so much (too much?) public attention, it’s refreshing to once again hear an honest-to-goodness hard rocking girl band."

Dan MacIntosh - Review You

“The EP is a fun romp of good old-fashioned rock and roll, with nothing to mask the things that make it great. Its got wailing guitars, its got a vocalist that you can’t stop listening to, but most importantly its got songs that really stick with you.”

“Lily Sparks’s Cooper Cobra is by far one of the best rock albums that I’ve come across. With incredible vocals and a classic rock feel, this is an album for anyone that likes great music. Buy this album!”
