Singer-songwriter Liz Longley is one of Nashville’s newest beloved musicians. Fresh from receiving her degree from the world renowned Berklee College of Music — where she earned the university’s biggest songwriting award, the Scott Benson Scholarship — Liz has quickly settled into her new hometown and is set on becoming a household name.
A Philadelphia native, Liz Longley has aimed to make a name for herself in one of music’s most competitive cities. Not easily daunted by a tough challenge, Longely’s seemingly never-ending tour schedule has garnered her an established fan base. The artist has opened for the likes of America, Amos Lee, Mindy Smith, Nanci Griffith, Paula Cole, Livingston Taylor, Shawn Colvin, and Colin Hay. Many credit Liz’s appeal to her strong talent and artistry, as her waves of melodic musicianship crash over her beautiful, mesmerizing voice.
The musician has seen plenty of professional acclaim as well, taking home top prizes in a number of songwriting competitions, including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship Competition, and the International Acoustic Music Awards. Liz’s music has seen regular airplay on Sirius XM with her single “When You’ve Got Trouble,” after catching executive’s attention with her cover of Van Morrison’s “Moondance.”
Liz Longley has released three studio albums, her most recent, “Hot Loose Wire,” the most successful, winning a number of rewards as well. The artist is currently running a Kickstarter campaign in advance of her newest studio effort, one she has been dreaming of putting together since graduating college two years ago.
While Liz remains unsigned, she continues to break venue records for advance ticket and merchandise sales, finding dedicated support across the country. The Washington Post has declared Longley “destined for a larger audience,” and Grammy award winner John Mayer has even labeled Longley’s music as “gorgeous.” We find it hard to disagree.
