Lily Holbrook performing at Stanford Park Hotel June 23, 2017
A blog to end the month of June. I have written a blog about her in the past but I need to continue writing about her to put a connection to all of them into this one. She is worth mentioning. I am just great friends with her and I am not ashamed to admit it.
I have known this woman for three years now and each year Lily Holbrook has gotten better each day, weeks, months, and years since I been following her music. She has kept her music alive and has not stop playing ever since. Oddly I will say that I am her personal photographer which I have taken amazing photos of her which have gotten plenty of likes on Facebook and Instagram. There is something that makes Lily Holbrook amazing!

I met Lily Holbrook at Off the Grid in Serremonte June 2014, That day was strange because it was sunny compare to being foggy and windy at the market. I do not remember how I approach her but I could remember seeing a pretty woman with sunglasses with a beautiful voice. I was impress with her singing.
Fast forward to October at Upper Haight. I got to see her perform with her friend Mark Erickson. I have a YouTube video of them performing which I use my brand new Nikon D5300 that I got for my 34th birthday (the video was not bad but as I continue to use my camera each video that I have recorded gotten much better).
I saw her again at Uptown Oakland in November. That performance was crazy because I was taking pictures and recording a video of her at the same time. The video of her was amazing and there was a song that I love which was entitled “No Means Yes Girl”. That song was amazing because she was able to belt a high note that I have never heard before. Lily has talents that I never thought a musician would ever have.
I have seen her perform at Off the Grid, 50 Mason Social House, Neck of the Woods, outside in the Castro District, and Stanford Park Hotel. I have driven a far distance to watch her perform and it is worth it. She is an amazing musician. She is one of the best person that I have ever taken a photo of and recorded her.
Lily Holbrook is the best musician that San Francisco has. She has three studio albums that are amazing to listen to. Her music is not hard to find on Spotify, Pandora, I Heart Radio, and even ITunes. Lily is popular.

It been nine years since she has release an album. She is raising the money through Patreon. I have become a Patreon which I have gotten great rewards from pledging to her. Her music deserve to continue and I am just doing my best to promote her music and her Patreon page on my Facebook page.

Does this blog sound like my experience with Lily Holbrook? I will say that I am telling a great story about her. I will confess I have become her number one fan and I am her personal photographer. I do have plenty of photos and videos of her. Oddly if you were to search my name on Google the results would be photos and videos of her.

My friendship with Lily Holbrook will go on to eternity. I will continue to support her music no matter if she stops playing.
