In the short time since her graduation from Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music, singer-songwriter Liz Longley has assembled an impressive resume. While best known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice, Liz has steadily developed a reputation as an accomplished songwriter, crafting intimately personal portraits through her music. In the past two years, Liz has taken home top prizes at some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country, including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship Competition, the International Acoustic Music Awards and the Rocky Mountain Folk Fest Songwriting Competition. New England named her the 2011 Female Performer of the Year, the Washington Post declared that Liz is ‘destined for a larger audience’ and Dig Boston called her ‘a rising acoustic sensation.’ Even John Mayer is a fan, calling her music ‘gorgeous, simply gorgeous.’ . Most recently, Liz’s music has taken center stage on a national level with numerous television placements and radio airplay. ABC’s critically acclaimed series NY Med featured Liz’s music throughout the first season, and the 2012 season finale of Lifetime’s Army Wives displayed her towering vocals in an epic grand finale song, ‘This Is Not the End.’ Executives at SiriusXM caught wind of her captivating cover of Van Morrison’s hit ‘Moondance’ and added it into regular rotation, along with her award-winning original song, ‘When You’ve Got Trouble.’ After an impressive response from listeners, Liz was invited to perform live in the SiriusXM studios in New York City and was named one of their Coffee House Discoveries of 2011. Following the success of her previous release, Hot Loose Wire, and an impressive crowd-funding campaign this past summer, Liz is releasing her fourth full-length album in early 2013.
