Liz Rognes is an indie-folk, Americana, and and jazz inspired singer/songwriter currently based in Spokane, Washington, but her open-prairie Midwestern roots are apparent in her clear and lilting songwriting. Classically trained as a soprano, Liz started writing and singing folk songs in college and fell in love with the idea of singing about her trouble. Liz worked closely with her cellist friend and producer Dan Zamzow of Deep Sea Productions to create her first album, Red Flags, in 2009, and her second album, Topographies, in 2012.

Liz’s new album, Topographies, is a collection of songs that maps the terrain of physical and figurative landscapes. Liz’s signature real-life songwriting is featured in the album, but Topographies also includes songs that explore less tangible contours, like identity and survival. Songs on the album range from flirtatious country stomp (What I Can’t Have) to ethereal, ambient songs (like Lake Okoboji) that feature rich vocal harmonies and string arrangements. All of the songs, though—whether playful or powerful—explore some aspect of the landscapes of the human condition.
