Liza Anne Plays the Early Show Tonight at Mercury LoungeJanuary 3rd, 2017
When Nashville, Tenn., folk-rock singer-songwriter Liza Anne (above, doing “Room” for Audiotree Live) put out her debut album, The Colder Months (stream it below), in 2014, “she appeared to be headed on a straight trajectory toward strummy folk in the standard confessional style, save for tasteful sprinklings of roots and country,” according to Diffuser. But on her follow-up, last year’s Two (stream it below), “Anne sounds determined to forge her own musical voice. She’s found it. And given where she has been, Two fosters a distinct sensation of ‘we’re not in Kansas anymore.’” Fortunately for us, neither is Liza Anne. See her at the early show tonight at Mercury Lounge. Keenan O’Meara opens.
