Described by the Herald Sun as “an old-fashioned, Springsteen-style storyteller with a soulful, mature voice”, Liz Stringer has established herself as one of Melbourne’s finest musicians. It has been a couple of years since Liz released Warm in the Darkness; however, its glow continues to be felt. The album showcases an evolving Stringer. While 2010’s Tides of Time was an intimate affair, Warm in the Darkness features a bigger sound, complete with horns and organs. In recent times Liz has been performing will an all-star cast in Vandemonian Legs (the cast includes Tim Rogers, Mick Thomas and Jeff Lang), but her upcoming shows are a chance to catch her at her solo best. Main Bar, Ballarat – August 8 & Cimarron B&B, Aireys Inlet – August 30.
