Lily Kershaw has only released a pair of singles -- 2012's "As It Seems" followed by this year's "Ashes Like Snow" -- but so far but she's batting two-for-two. With placements on the hit TV series Criminal Minds and online buzz, the 22-year-old L.A. songstress is now poised to release her debut album Midnight In The Garden September 24 via a recent deal inked with Nettwerk. The gorgeous "As It Seems" is reminiscent of any number of melodious songwriters and crystalline-toned singers of the feminine persuasion -- from Lisa Hannigan to Joni Mitchell -- and Kershaw's voice, simultaneously cool and warm, effortlessly grabs our attention without resorting to melodrama or gimmickry. New Yorkers can catch her city debut at Rockwood Music Hall July 31. Click through to stream "Ashes Like Snow" and watch the video for "As It Seems."
