Of all the talented singer songwriters in the Melbourne roots music scene, Liz Stringer stands out as one of its leading lights. She writes killer lyrics, has a beautiful expressive voice and can play a mean guitar.
She played at Basement Discs at lunchtime today, promoting her brand new CD Tides of Time, a self produced masterpiece of model song writing and melody.
She admitted to being somewhat hung over, having over imbibed on red wine the night before trying to offset a cold. Still, that didn’t in any way detract from her performance which was moving and absorbing and as always a pleasure to witness.
Basement Discs are featuring local female singer songwriters all this month. Next Friday Suzie Dickinson will be performing with her band. I’m looking forward to this as I am in the process of designing a web page for Suzie, though we have yet to meet in person. Suzie’s new CD 19 Steps is a winner. It is beautifully produced, is chock full of great catchy tunes, enhanced by Suzie's fantastic voice.
Rebecca Barnard will be in store on 21st May followed by the fabulous Lisa Miller on the 28th, so there’s lots of top knotch lunchtime entertainment to look forward to in the near future.
