Lily Brooks O’Briant Shares The Secrets Behind “Too Good To Be True”

Life with Lily seems occupied, but it is exhilarating that being an actress and singer-songwriter allows her to blend, shape, and craft exceptionally well.

Lily Brooks comes from pop influence with a smidge of country and R&B, which she formulates so well, which brings us to her well-rounded EP "Too Good To Be True." Lily shares many scenarios while lifting the instrumental so well with her divine vocals, swaying with melodies back and forth.

We sat down with Lily Brooks O'Briant and asked her about her upcoming EP "Too Good To Be True."

Congratulations on your EP release, 'Too Good To Be True.' What has made this such a notable release for you?

This is my debut EP, so it's a dream come true for me! I only started writing music about nine months ago, and these songs are a collection of the different experiences going through the emotional rollercoaster that was my first breakup and then the other side of healing and moving forward and then finding something beautiful but also recognizing how I was scared to get hurt again. Writing music helps me turn the pain and heartache into something beautiful that I can look back on and be proud of instead of the heartbreak and only remembering the bad parts.

Many great projects have come from unique moments and experiences. What were some of the moments that inspired this EP for you?

There were so many moments and experiences that I took inspiration from. One of the biggest inspirations was that moment in my previous relationship when I realized things were over. Still, so many other moments of inspiration would hit during time in the recording studio. Sometimes, those moments of realization and understanding would come after talking to my songwriting partner and other musicians about my relationship and life!

What message would you like people to take away from 'Too Good To Be True?'

Even through the pain and heartbreak, something better and happier is on the other side of those emotions. No matter how heartbroken you feel, know that things will improve, and you will move forward to find your happiness again.

'Too Good To Be True' is a wonderfully curated art piece. Were there any collaborators you'd like to mention that had a part in it?

I am so grateful to have worked with so many incredibly talented people on this EP - My excellent songwriting partner Ethan X Aragon Stephon Riley helped me write 'Crash' and 'Better Off Alone,' and many other incredibly talented artists!

What's next for you?

I am attending a music intensive in Santa Monica this year, where I will be learning from Grammy-winning mentors and writing and recording lots of music! I am performing at the Troubadour in LA on August 29th & you can expect another EP soon. I have already written several songs for the next EP or album because life happened and gave me a lot of material. Just a little teaser - one of the singles in the next EP/album is 'Romeo & Juliet.' Expect more love and heartbreak. You can also catch me as Lucy Romalotti on CBS's "The Young and The Restless!"
