Lisa Sutton and Tony J King are Lily & King, the Dixeland Punk darlings of the Australian folk festival circuit.

Their music is a meeting of their respective histories; King’s dirty blues guitar was born and bred in the factory towns of 1960s Adelaide, while Lily’s classical education led her to dangerous experimentation with Mingus and Monk in her teenage years.

Lily creates a luring, sensual haze of smoky-opiate vocals and rapturously disrespectful trombone, while King slams a rhythmic driving junkyard of guitars and percussion.

Lily & King’s first album, ‘Medication’ rose to No.1 on the Australian Independent Radio charts, and their current album, ‘Bless This Life’ (produced by ARIA award winning guitarist Matt Walker) was released in June 2017.
