"firecely independent...direct folk style intensity...."
“Liz Hogan and Lilli Lewis are a musical couple from Hammond, LA, about an hour outside of New Orleans. As The Shiz, their music leaps fearlessly between gospel, jazz, and folk, always featuring great harmony and compelling, poetic lyrics.”

“It literally blew me away. They played original songs that had meaning. Their music was crisp and clear, and the lyrics were pure gold. These ladies are here to stay and somewhere down the line everyone will know who "The Shiz" is. ”
"a premiere example of the of the South’s Iron Skirted women not ruffled by the wind - a force to be reckoned with."
“There are some bands that make you want to put your hands in the air, shout hallelujah and shake your booty for the rest of the night. With a swampy groove straight out of New Orleans, The Shiz does just that...With an Alabama Shakes intensity, they deliver a solid collection of music that wails with guitar, come-to-Jesus organ, bass, drums and more. The harmonies are so rich you could eat them with a spoon. They’ve got a great vibe and the lead singer has enough energy to power a large city.”
“When Liz & Lilli played at our writers night the club owner, a former priest from Ireland, shut down the bar, stepped out in front of the stage and watched in amazement. They got a standing ovation. Out of 238 writers (so far) the only other S.O.s were for Bill Rice, 3 time Grammy nominee and ASCAP's most award winning writer of all time, and John Bourke, a 97 year old ragtime artist.”
