Album Notes
Their edgy, unique sound took shape when Monica and Demetrius started writing and recording more than five years ago. With a strong intent to improve upon their craft, what began as a duo soon became a string quartet. After adding members, Alex and Laird to the mix, it was apparent Tripping Lily was born.

A group of musicians who draw their inspiration from within, Tripping Lily has deeply explored songwriting with its personal and passionate work. With Demetrius Becrelis (guitar/mandolin/vocals), brother Alex Becrelis (guitar/mandolin/vocals), Monica Rizzio (fiddle/vocals), and Laird Boles (string bass), Tripping Lily blends a unique sound of traditional and contemporary genres.

Touted as fresh, energetic, and alive, Tripping Lilys pop-rock groundwork is cross-fertilized with folk music and cutting edge vocal harmonies. The bands unique ability to absorb traditional music while speaking to the here and now is proof of their versatility as contemporary musicians. Tripping Lily seeks to exploit the empty space of the canvas. They unravel everything they've known and in turn, end up in a better place. The band has truly claimed their own place in the world of music.

Tripping Lily was invited to perform at the 2006 IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) Festival in Nashville September of 2006. They have supported artists such as Jake and Taylor Armerding (Northern Lights), Abigail Washburn (Uncle Earl), and Old School Freight Train they have also played such venues as Narrows Performing Arts Center, Club Passim, Cantab Lounge, Nameless Coffeehouse, The Knitting Factory and Johnny Ds.

Tripping Lily draws from a palette of traditional pop-rock inspirations while incorporating sounds from all genres. Their soulful vocal harmonies, melodic jazz/bluegrass creations, and deeply personal lyrics are what make Tripping Lily one of the most unique bands to hit the music scene in a long time. “When you roll jazz, Celtic, bluegrass, pop, folk (and more) all into one, add some solid acoustic rhythm, refreshingly creative harmonies, and polished musicianship, you have Tripping Lily,” Martin Brunkalla owner of Brunkalla Violins said.

Old-Fashioned and up-to-date (Boston Globe - Scott Alarik)
"Equal parts sassy bluegrassers and moody urban songwriters, jazzy jammers and sighing torch singers, Tripping Lily is nearly a genre unto itself. The folk-pop quartet formed in Nashville, but calls Boston home now, and its sound appeals to neotrad and alt fans alike. Guitars, mandolins, and fiddles prance behind airy, quirky melodies that feel both rootsy and modern. The harmonies lull like lullabies, then jolt as if shot through jumper cables."

“Tripping Lily’s sound is cutting edge: soothing sounds with outstanding vocals and an almost magical blend of acoustic instruments,” Jim Hughes DJ and host of WOMR, 92.1 said. “They have a sound and style that will appeal to all types of musical tastes, a band with many good things in store for them in the future.”

Can't stop listening
Well I finally got to go and catch this band live, and there I purchased (two cd's) of "The Couch Sessions Live" and well I put it into my Mp3 player and I have not stopped listening to it!! They make such a great sound together that I listen to it at least once a day... Looking forward to a "plugged in" album!.. Great Job!

Rockin' the World of Music
Couch Sessions Live is fantastic! It invaded my CD player last week and hasn't left yet. Each song is creative and impeccably-played, complete with a set of refreshing, well-written lyrics. Keep rockin' the musical world!


I have been listening to this CD non-stop since it arrived 2 weeks ago. The lyrics are amazing and the sound is very unique. I can't wait to see the band live.

Poignant scenes of lyrics and music
The lyrics within this CD are real and speak to a subject that seems to be missing in today's everyday life...the heart. The music follows and flows with each of these lyrics, matching the mood and the rhythm of each feeling portrayed. I am impressed! Nice work!

Really like what you're doing.
I really love acoustic music. I like this CD a lot. I just had my first studio experience and it confirmed my belief that it's almost like cheating:) I play mando, fiddle and tenor guitar myself and have never done anything but sessions-small performance and church music until recently. So you recorded this all live right? I'm 42 years old, but not too unhip, and I like the modern sound you're making with these acoustic instruments. I wish we had something like what you guys are doing down here in El Paso, TX. Keep it up, you guys are terrific!

They have created their own, wonderful, genre!
Nothing about this c.d. reminds me or sounds like anything I have heard before; and that is great! They have created their own beautiful, origininal art. In fact, I would go as far to say they have created their own genre. I believe they are strongly needed in this musical world where something seems to sound like something else, because they are all their own.

John Russell

This CD is a wonderful mix of bluegrass and pop, and the result is a beautiful set of songs that are executed extremely well, even as live recordings.

An Artist's Feast & Fuel!
This album is one of my "working inspirations". As a Lampwork Glass (beads) artist, I like to use music as a background or mental canvas for my work. This group gives just the right 'feel" to my technique.. I want MORE please, Monica, et al!
THank you!

Jonathan Koch

Been waiting for this CD a long time.....
OK, so I'm practically a geezer, having listened to 'cutting edge' music since the mid-fifties. But I can assure you Monica, Demetrius, Alex and Laird have nailed down a great sound. This is music from and for the heart, incorporating many syles and genres within each selection. What I find particularly appealing is hearing memorable elements which apprear in other of my favorite artists' music. Tripping Lily's skill at blending classic and contemporary influences into their unique style is fantastic and will be appreciated by anyone who truly enjoys the art of the singer-songwriter.

Truly Unique!
Tripping Lily has combined strong lyrics, beautiful vocals, and a truly unique sound! They've created their own genre and that is where the beauty lies.
