History

The Black Lillies

Cruz Contreras, the singer and songwriter for the new band the Black Lillies, recently devoted a couple of years to finding his voice—both literally and figuratively—by pulling from a wide range of musical influences. If the Black Lillies’ new album Whiskey Angel is any indication, it was time well spent.

Contreras spent the late 1990s and early ’00s performing with his now ex-wife, Robinella, and the CCstringband. After the marriage and band ended, he took a couple of years off from music before emerging last year as leader and frontman of the Cruz Contreras Band. That fledgling solo project led to the formation last fall of the Black Lillies. (Janet Jay)
