Who is Liloe Rix? I still ask myself that question sometimes.
I am a songwriter, guitarist and performer from Amsterdam. I am a girl, an optimist and a human who always sees the good in the bad. I can’t do anything about that.
I am also searching, but who isn’t? Searching for answers, about this life, about this world, and about myself. Am I really true to myself? Am I really honest as a person? Are we true to each other? Okay, sometimes I ask a few too many questions.
That’s why I make music. It is an exploration. When I write music, the ego and everything around me just disappears. I surrender and connect to my inner emotions, completely living in the moment.
When I perform live, the audience and I come together at the same time and at the same place, creating an awesome energy in the room. How special is it that we are sharing the same moment together? That makes us connect. Isn’t that the reason why we are here on this earth?
I love to dance. I love to dance with my hula hoop. I love rollerblading. During these activities, I get the same kind of feeling as when I make music or meditate. There is no time anymore, you are just there, focusing on the thing you do. I have a scar on my forehead. Sometimes I pretend it is my third eye. It feels like there is more than just us and our bodies. The Universe is made out of energy. Isn’t it beautiful to think that we are made of energy?
Doesn’t matter if it is a loop machine, a hula hoop or nature. Everything goes around, in circles.
I’m not sure if I will ever find all the answers to my questions. And maybe it is boring and unnecessary to know everything. But one thing I know for sure is that music connects. Music is emotion. Songs are little stories, a journey to finding answers. I want to share my stories. With you.
