Her new album 'Lilianna Zofia Wosko' draws upon her experiences these past two years. It is fully improvised and reflects her feeling that almost nothing in life can be rehearsed or planned. Ready or not, things will happen. She has blended the sublime, heartbreaking and comical into a universally compelling fusion of music.

The entire project would not be possible without the 6 amazing and talented drummers and percussionists in alphabetical order: Dan Tinkler, Daniel Villarreal-Carrillo, Jerome Bryerton, Joel Styzens, Jovia Armstrong, KG Price.
