The Shiz is an award-winning original Louisiana Roots Rock & Soul band swiftly making a name for itself as "unexpectedly stirring and a damned good time.” The burgeoning band is the indie rock alter-ego for conscious, retro, folk-rock and soul duo, Liz Hogan and Lilli Lewis. Hogan and Lewis first joined forces in 2004, debuting at Atlanta's Music Midtown Festival. Their collaborations cross genres from jazz and soul to folk and rock, always delivering with compelling transparency, honest songs from the heart and soul of the south. In 2013 the band climbed to Reverbnation's Top 10 New Orleans Rock Charts, was a regional finalist in the Hard Rock Cafe's Hard Rock Rising Global Battle of the Bands, and was a "Next Big Thing" feature on AfterEllen.com. “Where We Stand," the band’s first full length recording, was released in 2009 and is available on iTunes and at CDBaby.com. The latest EP, “I AM” is available at noisetrade.com/iamtheshiz. They are currently mixing a new studio album for release in the Winter 2013.
