Liz Frame and the Kickers
Liz Frame wrote her first song at age nine, and has been performing her own brand of rootsy Americana music since her early teens. She spent her childhood listening to the artists her parents loved ‚Äď Jimmie Rogers, The Weavers, B.B. King, Elvis Presley ‚Äď to name just a few, absorbing their sounds and ultimately allowing them to influence her own. At fourteen she picked up the guitar and has been hooked on the process of making music ever since.
In the early 80‚Äôs and into the 90‚Äôs, 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 during this time, but ultimately decided against the rigors of the business to concentrate on family. Now that her daughter is grown, she is once again free to pursue what she loves most ‚Äď 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. They play regularly around Boston, northern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, and are fast becoming a favorite of the area. A prodigious writer, Ms. Frame has recently 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.
Stewart Lewis is a singer songwriter, novelist, and radio personality. His soulful blend of pop and folk has been featured on TV and film and he has performed worldwide. He has published two novels, Rockstarlet, and Relative Stranger, which was hailed by best-selling author Augusten Burroughs as, "A droll, spirited read--terrific fun." His reports on ‚ÄúCity Life‚ÄĚ can be heard thrice weekly on WCBS News Radio.
In the few short years since penning her first song, D.C.-based
singer/songwriter Juliet Lloyd has quickly gained a name for herself as a
strikingly accomplished young songwriter and no-holds barred performer.
From thousand-seat amphitheaters to intimate standing-room only cafes,
audiences have been held captive by her accessible, memorable songs and
easy charm time and time again. She is equally capable of wringing every
last emotion out of a heartbreaking ballad as she is ripping into a
blazing rocker. Her sophomore album, Leave the Light On, featured a
collection of original songs that somehow manage ‚Äď like Juliet herself ‚Äď
to be both modern and timeless, both personal and universal. Blending
elements of pop, rock, and soul, it features standout vocal performances
that have become her trademark ‚Äď "soulful, emotive, and loaded with
groove" (Metronome Magazine).
Mainstream media took notice, and since 2008, five of the album's tracks
have been featured on TV shows like "The Real World,‚ÄĚ "The Hills‚ÄĚ and
‚ÄúTough Love.‚ÄĚ Juliet embarked on a tour of performances at festivals and
clubs across the country following the release of 'Leave the Light On,'
from Boston to Los Angeles. Highlights included sharing the stage with
Travis, and opening for classic rock legends America in front of an
audience of 10,000. Juliet was named 2007's ‚Äėbest female vocalist in
Boston‚Äô in a poll by the city‚Äôs WBZ-TV, and a national radio campaign in
the latter half of 2007 led to songs from Leave the Light On being added
into rotation at more than 175 radio stations across the country.
