Lillie Mae is an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, known to bluegrass and country fans. Rock fans discovered her fiddle and mandolin playing in Jack White's live band. Lillie Mae has been singing and playing on stages across the U.S. since she was, quite literally, a child.
Though the family spent most of their time among other well-traveled musicians, the Lillie Mae along with her siblings led a sheltered life. Her parents were intensely religious, setting firm boundaries against anything deemed too worldly. With limited access to much outside their musical universe, Lillie Mae and her tight-knit family unit, laid the foundations for their own musical approach a bit later.
Cowboy Jack Clement invited Lillie Mae and her family to visit Nashville for an audition. He declared the pre-teen Lillie Mae a major voice when she was just nine. In an interview, Lillie Mae stated that "Cowboy was closer to me than any grandparent I ever had. His influence on me is still strong. He always pushed me to play different instruments; he saw how I would pick up everything in the studio. He was a good friend to me and we remained close until he passed away."
She met Jack White in 2012 and joined his all-female live and studio band the Peacocks as fiddle and mandolin player. The pair -- who are both the youngest children of large families and instrumental polymaths -- had much in common and became fast friends. But it went further in that White respected Lillie Mae as a truly original songwriter.
He produced her 2014 Third Man single. Given the musical chemistry shared in that experience, the pair commenced work on an album in 2016. They began with three songs to see if it would hold, and the material kept on coming. Recording at Third Man Studio in Nashville, White got engineer Joshua V. Smith to helm the board. Mae -- who wrote all 11 songs on the album -- roped in brother Frank on guitars and sister Scarlett on mandolin. Brian Zonn and drummer Tanner Jacobson -- longtime family collaborators -- anchored the rhythm section. The recording sessions also featured a slew of guests: keyboardist Dean Fertita (the Dead Weather), banjoist Ian Craft (the Howlin’ Brothers), and pianist Cory Younts (Old Crow Medicine Show), with harmony vocals from McKenna Grace Rische and singer/songwriter Carey Kotsonis.
