This week, we got to chat with the wonderful Lizzie Edwards, frontwoman of Lizzie & the Makers!
We chatted about the band’s origin, their upcoming album and recent single “Mermaid”, what it’s like to write a song after a heartbreak, and the two New Yorkers discuss the perfect bagel order.
About Lizzie & the Makers
With influences ranging from Kate Bush and Ann Peebles to Lynyrd Skynyrd and Gregg Allman, Lizzie Edwards has been a guest at many NYC all-star jams, sharing the stage with the likes of James Carter, Syd Straw, Ted Leo and Reeves Gabrels. On lead guitar, Greg McMullen describes his music style as “sonic deconstruction onelectric/acoustic/resophonic/lap/pedal steel/bass guitars, and other devices…” Trying to bridge the gap between Arto Lindsay and Joe Walsh, Greg has played with Chris Whitley, Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie/The Cure), Meshell Ndegeocello, Trixie Whitley, Twilight Singers, Bonsai, Bentmen, Matt White, Speedbuggy USA, and the Glenn Branca Ensemble.
Lizzie and the Makers has rocked up and down the East Coast, taken the West Coast by storm, and found a new musical family in Texas, after blowing the roof of their SXSW 2018 and 2019 showcases in Austin. Dark and soulful lead vocals and lyrics by Lizzie and innovative arrangements by Greg combine the blues, rock and psychedelic soul of musicians like Freddie King, Sharon Jones and Led Zeppelin. The band also features Brett Bass on bass, Steve Williams on drums, and Rob Clores on keys.
