Lucky man that I am, this CD was placed in my hand by the artist herself.
I was already aware of Lizzie Bing through her work with the most excellent Jamie Williams and The Roots Collective. This 4 track CD contains some fine blue eyed country flavoured soul with Lizzie’s exquisite vocals taking centre stage.

She has a smile that lights up the darkest of rooms. Lizzie has a rich low
