Liz Green - Bad Medicine
Liz Green - Midnight Blues
Liz Green - Blue Note
There's a musical revolution going on in Manchester, and Liz Green is a big part of it. She brings style reminiscent of Nina Simone and Moby (I hear it) to her lo-fi finger-picking blues ramblings and from the first 10 seconds of Bad Medicine I was hooked. With influences ranging from Captain Morgan's dark rum to Anticon and Dolly Parton, homegirl has my vote.
She won the chance to perform on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury today, made even more remarkable by the fact that she hasn't even released a single yet.
Get into this before everyone else starts taking notice and Ms. Green's all over the Hype Machine. After Glasto Liz will be performing a few dates around Manchester before going on tour with George Thomas in the UK.
