What people are saying about
Lily Clayton Hansen…


“Whether the assignment is an in-depth profile of a public figure or simply writing a professional biography, Lily Hansen is a storyteller.  Lily’s ability to listen is her secret super power — she asks provocative questions, listens carefully for the crux of the “story” in the answers. Her biographies are intimate yet concise, prolific yet faithful to her subject. She is a delight to work with and a genuine bad ass.”

-Van Tucker, Partner at Fierce Company and Co-Founder of Avenue Bank (Nashville)


“Most writers ask the same silly questions. Lily isn’t afraid to ask the hard ones.”
-Joshua Black Wilkins, Photographer + Musician (Nashville)


“Lily took my modest artist bio and turned it into gold. I didn’t even request for a revision. She’s the real deal.”
-Art Webb, Musician and Producer of This is ART (Nashville)

-Brett Warren, Photographer at Brett Warren Photography Emporium (Nashville)
