Liz Townsend's gifts as a lyricist are on full display in her music. She achieves power, subtlety of expression, and what in Japanese aesthetics is called "mono no aware" - a bittersweet cherishing of the transient, ephemeral character of things while at the same time savoring in joy and gratitude their robust vibrant being.
It's rare to have a wise and broad perspective.. then to be able to convey it without being preachy or sentimental... well, Liz does it
"I saw her play at a living-room variety show in Logan Square...and loved, loved, loved her performance."
"The most beautiful, haunting thing I've heard in ages"
