Liz Longley will be bringing lots of new music for this special night!
Liz connects with her audiences through her timeless lyrics about love, gratitude, and friendships.
Praised by American Songwriter, Huffington Post, and CMT Edge, to name a few. Liz Longley’s latest album delivers bold, thick, pop with rock-and-roll edges. The starkly personal lyrics explore complexities and even dysfunction of relationships. Her award-winning songwriting is stronger than ever, and producer Bill Reynolds, the bassist of Band of Horses (also produced The Avett Brothers, Lissie) helps embrace a lush, pop-rock approach which marks a musical evolution for Longley.
For painters, the joy and challenge of creation begins with a blank canvas. For Liz Longley, it started in an empty room.
While Longley's songs and vocals invite complimentary comparisons to Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole and Nanci Griffith-all artists she's supported live-her latest effort spotlights a style and confidence that's all her own. You can hear it in the subtle-yet-soaring vocals on "Memphis," the dagger directness of "Skin and Bones," the bittersweet farewell that drives "This Is Not the End" (featured in the 2012 season finale of Lifetime's Army Wives). They're all cuts that dare you to hold back the goosebumps.
She says she'll continue to open her soul in the service of her art because that's what matters most to her. "Every time I get into these songs they resonate with me, lock with me, because they're based on something I went through," she says of the new collection. "I hope they connect with people and that they'll help with whatever they've gone through. That's what music does for me, and I hope I can do that for someone else."
After all, what better way to fill an empty room than with fully realized music?
