Lonesome Liz / Bio

Dubbed ‘The Female Robert Johnson’ by ‘Southern Fried Magazine’, Lonesome Liz's fans are devoted to her preservation of the spirit of traditional Country and Blues. She is often described as something like Janis Joplin's voice meeting Bob Dylan's lyrics with a performance style reminiscent of Dr. John. Playing not only guitar but a simultaneous kick-drum with upright bass player Val West by her side, she has added a White-Stripes like layer to performances.

Their Band of Lost Souls features a rotation of guest artists, currently featuring vocalist and actress Kim Cox, (Frank Miller's 'The Spirit'). The trio are both touring and developing a score for a cabaret inspired by Miller's 'Sin City' series. Past performances have included Jesco the Dancing Outlaw, Old-Time multi-instrumentalist Todd Wright, (Dolly Parton, Fleetewood Mac) and others.

As a solo artist, Lonesome Liz has shared a stage with Outlaw Country legends Shooter Jennings, Billy Don Burns and Drive-by Truckers artist Wes Freed as well as Americana favorites like Julie Christianson, (Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Joe Cocker), Michael O'Neill, (Bob Weir, Little Feat), Brigitte DeMeyer, (Sam Bush, Steve Earle, Ivan Neville), Will Kimbrough, (Roseanne Cash, John Prine, Mavis Staples, Billy Joe Shaver) and many others.

A multi-disciplinary artist, other projects have included icons of popular culture like visual artist, journalist and Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School founder Molly Crabapple and Rock poster artist Bob Masse, (Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Red Hot Chili Peppers and many, many others).
