More Info

Fenne Lily was born in London and moved to Dorset as a toddler, where she grew up in the picturesque English countryside. She was a "free range kid," as she calls it, after her parents took her out of school for a period at the age of seven. During that time they taught her while the family travelled Europe in a live-in bus. Even after she returned to traditional school at nine, her home education never ended, extending to music.

Her mother gifted Fenne with her old record collection, through which she discovered her love for T-Rex and the Velvet Underground and Nico. Soon after she fell for the strange genius of PJ Harvey and came to worship Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, and the richly crafted worlds of Feist, which inspired Fenne to pick up a guitar.

On Hold was self-released in 2018, before finding a large audience online and being picked up by Dead Ocean Records.
