LILURA Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 22 October 2017, LILURA

LILURA signals the successful transition to electro-pop for Highlands singer-songwriter Jemma Tweedie who previously built a solid profile as an acoustic artist.

Over the past year, LILURA has performed at XpoNorth, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival and recently returned from a writing trip in Los Angeles. The result, new single ’Darkest Desire’ which was co-written by Dan Richards (One Direction), is a confident slice of dark, glitzy, electro-pop at its finest.


To coincide with the official release on 17 November, LILURA tours alongside fellow Highlands act Josephine Sillars + The Manic Pixie Dreams playing Green Rooms in Perth on Friday, The Drouthy Cobbler in Elgin on 4 November, Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on 5 November and The Hug & Pint in Glasgow on 7 November.
