“It’s undeniable that the overwhelming love for music, and all that implies, is what brought The Lilly Brothers together. Comprised of the members, Ty Cheves (vocals, bass), Sterling Clay Temple (drums), Brad Pruette (vocals, rhythm guitar), Joy Clemmer (vocals, percussion), Brandon Kennedy (keys, percussion), and Chandis Lilly (vocals, lead guitar), the group brings and exciting mix of rock, blues, soul, and an overall funky, good time to the stage each and every time they perform.
February of 2014 put the wheels in motion for The Lilly Brothers. The early practice proved just what each individual member was made of and very quickly, a picture was painted depicting exactly what they wanted to become. Vocalists began singing songs they never dreamed of covering, instrumentals learned new licks with ease, limits were pushed musically, vocally, and magic happened. The members’ diverse musical backgrounds merged into one great big coterie complete with a “family” vibe that’s sounds are pleasing to listeners from age 8 to 80.
Each member of The Lilly Brothers graduated from West Davidson High School in Lexington, North Carolina, various years, with the exception of Brandon “Lloyd” Kennedy, who attended Central Davidson (and the other brothers try not to hold that against him). An intricate web was weaved bringing them together when the time was right. Divine intervention? They think so.
The Lilly Brothers look forward to a bright future and making beautiful music together for many years to come. If you hear them once, you’ll want to hear them again. Whether playing for 10 or 10,000, they will be wearing their game faces and put the best they have to offer on the table each and every show. It’s all for the love of music! Life, Love, Laughter and Lilly Brothers!” – via Facebook
