Urban folker, Liz Snavely, feels as emotionally naked as her toe-tappin’ barefeet during a LVNMUZIQ performance. With introspective poetry set to music that cuts to the soul, Snavely considers songwriting free therapy that helps her work through pain and discover her own inner strength.

LVNMUZIQ has performed at hundreds of shows across the U.S. since 2005. Snavely’s main musical objective has always been to encourage anyone to believe in themselves, follow their dreams and live the life they want to live despite their circumstances.

LVNMUZIQ has a song featured in the independent film, Fagbug - A film that speaks out against hate crimes and raises awareness of gay rights and struggles for equality.

Influenced by the likes of Patty Griffin, Tracy Chapman and Damien Rice, LVNMUZIQ’s 6thCD, “Butterflies,” is due out in the Spring of 2015.
