It seems not long ago that Lili Rocha was singing in the streets and squares of her small native town in Brazil. Lili’s great passion for music led her to be named the winner of the prominent “Gabriela” talent show in Ilhéus, Brazil, where she outshined other hopeful young singers. From there, Lili began the journey of a lifetime, performing shows throughout Portugal, Italy, Switzerland. Lili Rocha fell in love with the essence of Europe, and made a permanent move to Switzerland, continuing to pursue her dreams. Between time spent working and touring in her new environment, Lili particularly gained huge support from the Italian community of Switzerland. Soon after, Lili attended Accademia di Musica Italiana and studied under maestro Antonio Guglielmi with whom she also recorded her first songs. As her career progressed, Lili Rocha was discovered by producer, Matthias Oertle, with whom she works closely on many of her successful projects. Not far away from her humble roots, Lili’s ambition and creative drive continue to further her toward achieving her dreams.
Lili Rocha’s four released albums, containing songs in Portuguese, Spanish and Italian, have found great success, reigning in a dedicated fan base for this adult contemporary/soft rock songstress, with over 21 million profile views on MySpace. The first album, Me Deixa Sonhar (2003), boasts modest success in Lili’s native Brazilian market, and sold over 80,000 records in Italy. Lili promoted her first album back in her hometown, appearing in numerous TV and live performances throughout Brazil’s largest cities, Sao Paolo, and Rio. Lili Rocha's growing success left audiences anxiously awaiting her next release. The following year, Lili launched her sophomore album Recomeçar (2004) in Europe. Recomeçar (2004) did not fall short of the fans’ expectations, going gold in Italy with 40,000 copies sold. Lili’s third studio release, titled Amuleto (2007), turned out to be a lucky charm indeed. Shortly after its release, Lili Rocha embarked on the Amuleto concert tour, performing for thousands of frenzied fans and traveling to many major cities throughout Italy and Spain. The spirit of over eighty shows along the tour was captured and compiled as Lili’s first live album, Lili Rocha Live (2009). This album, released as both CD and DVD, was another huge hit, going gold in Italy and showcasing her true talent as a live performer.
Last summer, Lili Rocha completed her first English album in the US, and is set to expand her fan base and break into the American music scene. This last spring, Lili completed a short tour of the United States, with stops in New York City, Miami and Los Angeles. Recently, Lili released a special remix edition of her hit single "Gold In Your Soul", remixed by the famed Steven Wolf (credit includes: Ke$ha, P!nk, Celine Dion, and many more) This remix campaign showcases Lili's hot new dance/house sound that will be circulated to all DJs in Europe, South America, and in the US.
