Lizzy Rose hails from Seattle, WA but is probably spending more time in LA and all around the states nowadays. She has a band who are Jeremy Shanok and Nate Munski.
The make Eclectic Weirdo Indie Freak Folk Rock music.

From her Bio:
Lizzy Rose is a captivating performer and should not be missed. She has an aura that welcomes and includes audiences in her journey. Her voice grabs at the soul and conveys a message of love and acceptance to the listener. Her songs and words are both catchy and deeply spiritual. There is hope for humanity pouring out of every lyric.

There is an honesty and clarity in Lizzy Rose’s voice and composition that evokes a feeling of being home.

I have to agree with all that, her voice is totally captivating.

So, enough of the verbiage, lets let to the music. And what great music it is.

This is their latest release.
I just love this song, not sure why but there is just something about it that grabs me. The video is a tad strange, but there you go.
Terrific vocals and great accompaniment. What else could one ask for? Enjoy.

Here’s Lizzy Rose with Jeremy Shanok, the pyramids, some Egyptian angels? and who knows what else. A very cool video and a brilliant song. I’m liking Lizzy Rose’s voice more and more. A very well produced song.

I thought I determined a streak of quirkiness before, now I’m sure. This song is from the Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton.
This is a beautiful rendition of the song.

When I saw that Lizzy had covered one of my favorite Kate Bush songs, I opened the video with trepidation. After all this is an all time classic, and I don’t recall hearing another version by anyone. But I was happily relieved to find this great version. Kick back and enjoy.

Wow! Shades of Bob Dylan. A deft touch with the harmonica, this is a beautiful song just performed perfectly. I am really in love with this young ladies voice. This is from a couple of years ago, it is just the boss.

OK, OK hold the presses. I thought that golden outfit was familiar, then I was looking for photographs to use in this piece. I found that photo above and I knew I had seen her before on the Flaming Lips Dark Side of the Moon set. That will teach me to scroll down a bit more when investigating artists sites. The whole set was on one of the VH1 channels, and if you have not seen it, search for it.

So sadly we have to close today, but what better way.
Remember that first song? Of course you do.
Well here’s a great live version @Lost Lake Lounge, Denver CO earlier this year. Nice to see a band who can deliver live.
