Songwriting treasures from deep within
For painters, the joy and challenge of creation begins with a blank canvas. For Liz Longley, it started in an empty room. "I was living in Boston and my roommate had just moved out, so I paced the hardwood floors of her room with my guitar," she recalled. "I walked back and forth until the songs were done. It was as though they were stuck in the apartment walls." Liz has a gift for culling musical treasures as though straight out of thin air with her songs and vocals compared to Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole and Nanci Griffith, all artists she's supported live. Her voice and tone, touched with the slightest of country inflections, pours out like clean, crystalline water. Liz’s songwriting has taken 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.
