Liz and the Lovelies
LIZ AND THE LOVELIES is the band of singer/songwriter Liz Chidester, originally from the mountains of Virginia. Moving to Chicago in the winter of 2013 by train with 4 bags and 2 guitars, Liz immersed herself into the Chicago music scene, releasing her debut record "People Pumping Pedals" in 2014 under CAU Dog Records. In 2015, she released the EP "Otter Hill", an intimate recording of 5 songs about her family and home life in Virginia. Her songs received recognition by NPR's Newsong Songwriting Competition as the 2014 Mid-west Finalist, the Chicago Music Awards Best Female Vocalist Nominee in 2015, and a New-Song Songwriter Competition Finalist in 2016.
Her music inspired the talent of close friends and family to create the electronic folk group LIZ AND THE LOVELIES. Her army of Lovelies include Alex Chidester (vocals, mandolin), Lewis Rawlinson (vocals, cello), Ivan Pyzow (vocals, synths, trumpet), Zach Finch (drums), and Mike Fletcher (bass). With the production of musician Matt Griffo and the band Frances Luke Accord's Nicholas Gunty, LIZ AND THE LOVELIES will release their first EP 'Progress into Simplicity' in March of 2017.
Liz lives in Chicago, IL as a teaching artist at Old Town School of Folk Music and Chicago Children's Theatre. She is a professional singer and actor.
Creating music, dance, and writings to have a cohesive collection of performance art.
With such diverse influence as Laura Marling, Dan Auerbach, and Lianne La Havas, Lauren Scott creates soulful music that is earnest, folky and enchanting. Lauren has been playing in and around Philly since the age of 16, entrancing audiences with riveting refrains and dynamic chord progressions. She has played at World Cafe Live, Musikfest and many other venues on the east coast.
Lauren will be releasing her debut EP "Stuck in Time" in the fall of 2017.
