Through 24 years, 16 albums and 2300 live shows, Carbon Leaf’s independent spirit and vibrant music continues to resonate with their fans.
Blending folk, Celtic, bluegrass, Americana and rock traditions into what the group calls Ether-Electrified Porch Music, the Virginia quintet’s songs of life, love, heartbreak and landscape are independently written, recorded and produced from their own studio in Richmond.
After 5 years of intense touring, Carbon Leaf reduced their 2016 road schedule to focus on some lingering projects, including the release of Nothing Rhymes With Woman, the third and final re-recorded album originally released through their formal record label. Along with the completing new versions of Indian Summer (2004) and Love Loss Hope Repeat (2006), the band’s goal of regaining 100% ownership of their music catalogue was achieved.
The band will be performing in 2017 behind a U.S. tour and a collection of new songs inspired by acoustic & electric guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bass, drums, cello, banjo, penny whistle, pedal steel, accordion and rich vocal harmonies.
In the short time since her graduation from Boston's renowned Berklee College of Music, singer-songwriter Liz Longley has assembled an impressive resume. While best known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice, Liz has steadily developed a reputation as an accomplished songwriter, crafting intimately personal portraits through her music.
In the past two years, Liz has taken home top prizes at some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country, including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship Competition, the International Acoustic Music Awards and the Rocky Mountain Folk Fest Songwriting Competition. New England named her the 2011 Female Performer of the Year, the Washington Post declared that Liz is "destined for a larger audience" and Dig Boston called her "a rising acoustic sensation." Even John Mayer is a fan, calling her music "gorgeous, simply gorgeous."
A Philadelphia native, Liz recently made the move to Nashville, Tennessee where she has quickly made her presence known throughout Music City. In addition to writing more than forty songs with some of the best songwriters in the business, Liz has also managed to keep up her seemingly never-ending touring schedule, playing over one hundred shows in the last year – all without the help of a record label or booking agent.
