      I loved that you were back in your country calico! Your show this evening seemed so easy and peaceful. I loved it all and the last two songs the best. Thank you for sharing your gift.

      Somewhere over the rainbow. But we loved the entire performance as always.

      We absolutely love these shows! The lighting and sound were especially great in this performance. Hearts skipped a beat when you covered "I Can't Make You Love Me." It was the best cover of this song I've ever heard. "Over the Rainbow" was absolutely amazing. And, of course, a sneak peek at "Boyfriend" -- loved it!!! We look forward to these performances every month!!

      What was your favorite part of the performance --- to hear her and some of the new material --- she just gets better each time

      Any chance to see and hear Liz is always a treat. She brightens up the day and always puts a smile on my face listening to her; and so many of her songs speak too closely to experiences of mine and hits me in my heart, in a good way!

      Shout out from Ann Arbor! We enjoyed the show. Keeping it real is the best part. It's always nice to see you. Love the new tune and the nod to Eva Cassidy.

Weightless, the new album from acclaimed singer/songwriter Liz Longley, will be released on August 26th via Sugar Hill Records. The winning transformation of her songwriting from the personal into the universal plays brilliantly on Weightless, the highly anticipated follow-up to Longley’s eponymous 2015 Sugar Hill Records debut, which earned accolades from critics, who proclaimed the album “a thing of beauty,” (Popdose), and praised her “captivating stories set to tunes that will be running through your head after a single spin.” (American Songwriter)
Longley recorded the 10-song collection in Nashville with Bill Reynolds (Band of Horses, Avett Brothers, Lissie), and she is joined by a vibrant group of musicians including Secret Someones’ drummer Zach Jones, Jimmy Wallace on piano (Gavin DeGraw, Kenny Wayne Shepherd), Dave Roe (Dan Auerbach, Sturgill Simpson) on bass, and the esteemed Kenny Vaughan (Lucinda Williams, Rodney Crowell) on guitar.
Weightless luxuriates in bold pop with rock-and-roll edges. Crunchy, percussive guitars cushion the defiant songbird melodies Longley uses to deliver bittersweet lyrical punches that explore the complexities of relationships, rather than the fairy tale.
While the new album’s triumphant embrace of lush pop-rock marks a musical evolution for Longley, the starkly personal lyrics and clear vignettes that have defined her songwriting to date remain. “The songs I am drawn to singing every night are the ones that carry the most truth, the ones that I relate to no matter where I am in my life,” she explains. “This record is made up of those kinds of songs.”
“What’s the Matter” saunters into dicey relationship questions with confidence, crackling with electric guitar and vocals that are somehow angelic and menacing at the same time. Songs “Weightless” and “Swing” capture two distinct yearnings for freedom, while “Electricity” explores love’s invigorating and maddening buzz.
By vulnerably digging into her own stories, Longley keeps giving the rest of us the words and melodies to share what we feel, but struggle to express. “In the process of writing these songs, I felt empowered and re-focused on what is important in life,” she says. “Songwriting is the cheapest form of therapy. It helps make sense of situations and emotions that aren’t yet understood. Then the hope is that it helps someone else, because everything feels better when you can sing about it.”
Since the release of her self-titled album (2015) Longley has been immersed in writing and tirelessly touring. Longley also curates monthly Concert Window performances featuring her and a special guest, allowing fans a more personal look into her life as Longley broadcasts live from her living room. Liz will tour with her band this fall, with stops including New York, Chicago, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles.
