In the '90s, Canadian singer-songwriter Lily Frost got her start with the cabaret-inspired band The Colorifics. She's since made the jump to solo artist and songwriter.

Her musical mentor, the late Ray Condo, inspired her album Lily Swings, which recalls Regina Spektor and Feist. On this episode of Song Travels, she performs her original song "Enchantment," as well as a few old favorites.
