Liz Frame & the Kickers (Ballroom)
"Liz Frame is one of the most compelling, interesting and emotive voices I've heard in a long, long time. She's someone who has to be heard!" - Marian Leighton-Levy/Rounder Records founder
"Once in a while an album cuts right to your heart. Liz Frame and the Kickers' "Sooner" is that record. Every track is a startling, well-honed gem filled with Liz's powerful, experience-rich vocals....(She) has immense talent..." - Steve Morse / Boston Globe, Billboard and Rolling Stone.
Liz Frame has been performing her own brand of rootsy Americana music since her early teens and has been hooked on the process of making music ever since. In the early 80’s and into the 90’s, she began seriously pursuing a career in music, becoming an active member of the country music/rockabilly scene in Boston. Fronting her own band, she garnered serious interest from both major and independent record labels making infectious, heart-felt and at times raucous music that appeals to everyone from eight to eighty! Ms. Frame is backed live by her band, the Kickers, a group of talented friends whose raw, acoustic sound and sweet harmonies help to deliver her material with distinction.
A prodigious writer, Ms. Frame has just released her first full-length recording, Sooner, a collection of ten original songs that feature playing by some of the cream-of-the-crop session players, including Bobby Keyes, Duke Levine and Kevin Barry.
