A few nights ago WRTI began it's countdown for the top 100 releases of 2017. Lili had been getting heavy rotation throughout the year with several tracks from "Another Place, Another Time." When it came down to it the title track came in at #36. Not bad for an Indie EP! 2018 is looking good for an upcoming full-length album! Stay tuned.


Lili Añel (pronounced Ahn-Yell) considers music a calling. The musical visionary grew up in New York City where she discovered her passion for music. As a child Añel remembers singing along to her mother's Cuban, jazz and pop standard albums. Her mother supported Lili’s desire to join the church choir and her grandfather's recognition of how much joy singing brought to her served to set her feet firmly on the path of a career in music.

Currently residing in Philadelphia, Añel returns with her highly-anticipated, latest recording "Another Place, Another Time" due out early 2017. "Another Place, Another Time" is an EP of 6 songs, 2 penned by Añel, 2 co-written with her twin sister, Barbara and 2 covers. Another Place, Another Time's songs were recorded live with minimal overdubs. "They lent themselves to being more open and having space" says Añel. Lili Añel once again pushes the boundaries vocally and as a songwriter continuing to electrify her audience as well as attract new fans.

Palmetto Records released her first CD "Laughed Last" (1994), following with "Hi-Octane Coffee" (2001), "Laughed Last Reissue" with 3 Bonus Tracks recorded live (2006), "Dream Again" (2007) and "Every Second In Between" (2009). In 2007, JazzTimes Magazine said of Lili "…her songs are consistently excellent…" and proclaimed of her 2009 release "…a cd to blow your mind at first listen…". Every Second In Between (produced by Glenn Barratt) also made the All About Jazz 2009 Year End Writers Choice for the "10 Best New Jazz Releases" list, along with winning 3 New York Music Awards 2010: Best Singer-Songwriter, Best Jazz Album and Best Female Jazz Vocalist. On her 2013 release I Can See Bliss From Here, Lili teamed up with Dale Melton (The Melton Brothers) a friend and fellow musician who'd played in her rhythm section for over a year. The collaboration as co-producers has proven fruitful, delivering a profoundly honest and diverse recording. The songwriting on this, her 6th CD, is more musically diverse than any of her previous. Says Lili "these are the songs I want to put out to the world at this time. They reflect where I am right now". Musically drawing from Latin, Jazz, Folk, Blues and Pop, as much a hybrid as Añel herself, a New York-born Cuban-African American. The album was well received by critics and fans alike. READ MORE
