(Vocals, b. 1985)

Daughter of comedy actor Keith Allen, Lily has gone on to surpass her father’s success with two platinum-selling albums in the Noughties. Allen blends British pop with elements of ska and R&B. That, coupled with acerbic observational lyrics brought her to prominence with her 2006 debut Alright, Still and UK chart-topping single ‘Smile’. The Londoner’s second album It’s Not Me, It’s You followed in 2009, and went to No. 1, also making waves in the US where it made the Top 5.
