Album Notes
With her first album, “Music Trance” featuring Talib , Lilla D’Mone seems poised to stir the very essence of soul music. In a record
that speaks to both those who have loved and lost, the 20 year old singer watches the world go by with tenderness
and grace beyond her years--shining, through an uncanny storytelling ability. The music ranges from funk infused
jazz themes to searing soulful ballads, written and produced by the artist herself. “I want this album to take people
away from reality to a sensual place where they are comfortable, relaxed and understood,” says D’Mone, “I think
this album can put a restless spirit at ease for a while.”
Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Lillian Marie Naiman grew up under the influence of her parents music: Billie
Holliday, Marvin & Tammy, and Aretha Franklin she received from her mother; Hendrix, Sade and Tracy Chapman
from her father. At the age of 6 she taught herself to play the piano by ear, with no instruction and no knowledge of
written music. She began channeling the music through her own vocal chords when she was just 12 years old with
her local gospel choir. In high school other opportunities presented themselves--in addition to gospel choir, she sang
with Ulysses S. Grant High School’s internationally recognized Royal Blues, at the same time providing stage and
studio vocals for several local hip-hop acts. It was during this time that she found her niche in the local Portland hiphop
scene. “I was the only girl rockin’ the mic at the time, be it a show or a house party. There were no female m.c.’s
here, much less other singers.”
In 2002, thinking about her own music career, she began applying her efforts toward what eventually became Music
Trance, working hard inside and outside of the studio to develop her sound exactly the way she wanted.
The largest influence on Music Trance has been the creation of the record itself, during which time an eager young
girl grew into an industry-savvy diva with an enthusiastic fan base spanning the west coast. The late, great Andre
Hicks--otherwise known as Mac Dre--introduced Lilla to Fahrenheit records CEO, First Degree the DE. During this
time, she performed alongside such industry heavies as Andre Nickatina, B-Legit, Talib Kweli, and rap godfather,
Too $hort.
After doing guest vocals for a number of Fahrenheit Records releases, and studio work with local hip-hop notables
she felt she had enough experience to strike out on her own. Some of her greatest tribulations came with developing
Music Trance, and D’Mone learned, sometimes through frustration, what it would take to stand up for her record.
Three years later Music Trance has Lilla D’mone’s full confidence, largely thanks to the collaboration efforts of
Andre Rivers, Syko, and MyG, and her own matured production abilities. Lead single Take a Moment is “a real song
that everybody can feel because everyone has been through what I describe.” Andre Rivers turns out a piano riff that
escalates and coalesces with D’Mone’s voice through every emotion--the song is very pretty in it’s simplicity. Sitchiations
describes her journey to shed the negative people from her life and career. It stands out because of the insistency
of the vocals played off of an expansive jazz/funk ensemble, “This is what we call flavorful.” Lilla D’Mone has
more words to back this. “People forget the importance of music’s roots--the old singers and musicians. People are
building sounds, but too many are building off of something that happened a year or two ago. The warmest sounds
come from every era of jazz, soul, and blues, these are the sounds that remain unforgotten.” The larger vision of the
album can be glimpsed in Lost in the Music: “I paint a mysterious picture. You might be forced to forget your problems
and find yourself lost, listening.” You might have to dance, too. Syko, who best known for his production of the
Mac Dre hit “Thizzelle Dance” was brought in to make the beat rumble.
In an era where personal vision only has meaning for industry super-producers, Lilla D’Mone has successfully
produced an album on her own terms, to her own standards of satisfaction. Music Trance contains no filler, no throw
away songs. Its solidity speaks for both the artistic talent and outstanding work ethic that can only take the listener
to a place this deep.

A definitive R&B songstress for the new millennium.
The music of Lilla D'mone on 'Music Trance' does indeed put you in a trance. Every song is as deeply melodic as the lyrics are captivating. The listener is invited to take a romatic journey through desire, love and loss. If you enjoy jazzy rhythm and blues, I promise 'Music Trance' will evoke every emotion in your conscious.

Your Number One Fan!

The sounds on this CD will take you away to a wonderful place! It is a CD that you can press play and walk away knowing you will be satisfied with each song that plays! It is amazing that a woman so young is so beautifully talented! Lilla D'Mone's music is bound to leave a long impression on this ever changing world!

What is there to say?. From the 1st note of the 1st track of my first listen of this artist 1st introduction to my ears, heart and then soul, I was hooked. In a day and age where the main airwaves constantly spoon feeds the listening public a bunch of garbage from manufactured groups and solo artist, THIS young lady is a refreshing breath of soul stirring fragrance. The smoothness of her vocal delivery often reminds me of my old favorite, Phylis Hyman and Miki Howard songs. The recording in itself is masterful. Who ever your mixing engineer was, KEEP HIM/HER! I've longed for an artist that presents me with albums/cds' that can be enjoyed entirely, instead just a track or two or three (if your lucky). For those of you out there that want to put in a cd and lay the remote down for an extended period of time, do yourself a favor and get this cd, put it in, press play on your remote, then place the remote on top of your stereo system and walk away and have a seat between your speakers. Oh yeah, one more thing, You'd be well advised to put your system on repeat all before you get comfortable. Chances are you won't be needing to return to the remote for awhile for anything other than a family emergency.
