Had a great weekend traveling from VA to ME.
In Virginia, I had the rare opportunity to open for the GRAMMY Award winning band, America, at the legendary venue, The Birchmere! For their encore, they invited me up to sing along on their hit song "Horse With No Name"! They were incredibly kind and generous and I loved sharing the stage with them! And WHAT A CROWD! Woo!!
Last night, in Maine, I opened for one of my favorite singer songwriters, Antje Duvekot. Her lyrics are so captivating and her voice is angelic. The 8 hour drive from PA to ME yesterday was SO worth it... a huge thanks to my mom, who joined me for the trip and drove most of the way! I've just been spoiled with amazing venues (and generous people!) this weekend!
June is jam packed with a two week tour of sunny California with the highly regarded singer/songwriter Steve Seskin and a voice you love and recognize (from the latest season of American Idol), Caleb Hawley! After CA, I'm headed to Texas for a two week tour with the talented Robby Hecht! June is looking lovely. :)
On the road again... !!
Welcome to the new LIZLONGLEY.COM and thank you so much for stopping by! Feel free to take a look around and make yourself at home.
In the coming weeks, I'll be sharing a NEW music video with you. The video was filmed at the stunning Shalin Liu Performance Center in Rockport, Massachusetts for "Unraveling", a song from my 2010 CD titled 'Hot Loose Wire'. "Unraveling" is a song I wrote about my grandmother who suffered from Alzheimer's. I carry the song very close to my heart and was blown away when it was chosen as the 1st Prize Winner of the BMI/John Lennon Scholarship Award. I can't wait to share the video with you.
If you check out the tour page, you'll see many new shows have been added to the tour schedule. I am thrilled to be playing so many house concerts this year! I absolutely love getting to know you and your friends through a night of music. Thank you for reaching out and making those special nights possible.
Stay tuned... LIZLONGLEY.COM will soon be selling the great new merchandise we have in the works. Wait until you see!!
Thanks again for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon!
P.S. Here's a picture taken during the shooting of the Unraveling music video.
