Lillian Allen is a two time Canadian Juno Award winner (the Canadian equivalent to the American Grammy Awards). Her latest recording ANXIETY is abundant with a tantalizing sense of empowerment, and transformation. Allen is one of reggae's great literary zeitgeist whose poetry brings past, present and a visionary future in the rhythmic moment. Whether celebrating Artists like Billie Holiday, or decrying homelessness or bringing us to the warmth and values of family and community growing up in Spanish Town, Jamaica, or a love song to her beloved city Toronto, Lillian's new spoken word CD, ANXIETY, sparkles with music and language swirls ANXIETY may very well be a potent metaphor for our times. Lillian Allen's vision, performance and creative artistry, delivers a real place from which to stand, to resist, to celebrate, and to rock on.
