Featured Artist: Liz Longley

May 15, 2013

We reached out to Nashville singer-songwriter Liz Longley prior to her Buncearoo show at Foundation Gallery & Liveroom this Thursday night. With the release of her latest single “This Is Not The End”, Longley has continued on a whirlwind of musician life, writing and recording her upcoming record, keeping the list of tour dates steady and long, all while making a fan out of John Mayer at the same time.

We spoke to her about her single, inspirations, her upcoming record, and more. Read our interview below and get to know Liz Longley.

Who were some of your musical inspirations growing up?

I fell in love with lyrics and songwriting when I heard Joni Mitchell’s ‘Blue’. That album changed everything for me… she is a huge influence. Eva Cassidy has also been a huge influence as far as singing goes. Her voice is truly from another planet.

You released your single “This Is Not The End” last month. How has the reception been so far from your fans?

Wonderful! “This is Not The End” is a song I co-wrote in Nashville last year. Shortly after we wrote and recorded it, it was placed as the finale song for Lifetime’s hit series, Army Wives. The reaction was like nothing I’ve ever experience before. Army Wives fans were emailing me numerous times a day, looking for this song. So now that we’ve released it, things have almost calmed down!! It was a good problem to have! :)

The single is off your upcoming album. When should fans expect the record to come out?

At the moment, there is no official release date. A month ago I signed with Red Light Management. It was a huge step in my career and I am thrilled to be working with them. They have big dreams for this new record and are sending it out to record labels to get an idea of interest before we decide to release it independently. In the meantime, I’ll have it available at all shows.

From songwriting to recording, what can you tell us about the creative process for the record?

A majority of the songs on the record have been around and on the road with me for about two years. They are all songs written from personal experiences, outside of the Queen song I covered, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”. The recording process was particularly special because Gus Berry, who has toured with me for the past two years, produced the record. He knows these songs better than I do, I swear. He knows my listeners and he did an incredible job taking the special parts of the live show into the studio. Thanks to 650 generous supporters, I was able to hire the best musicians in Nashville and rent out my dream studio, Ocean Way Studios, for two days.

You’ve got a ton of show dates coming up, bringing you from one coast to the other. What is it that you like the most when it comes to touring?

The people I meet at shows keep me on the road. No matter how long the drive or how bumpy the flight, every night they remind me why I love to make music.

What’s your favorite city to perform in?

It’s impossible to choose! I particularly love to play in Boston though. Gus and I lived there for a combined total of 8 years so we have lots of memories there and love to hang in our old favorite spots before we hit the stage.

Favorite current guilty pleasure musician?

My guilty pleasure is always Taylor Swift. But my non-guilty pleasure is Marc Scibilia. Check him out!! He is the real deal.

Thanks for talking to us at Pick-Up. We look forward to your Buncearoo show. Any last words for the readers out there?

Thanks for taking the time to read this! Hope to see you at a show soon! Thanks!
