Check Out Singer Songwriter Liz Graham’s New Single “Damaged”
Singer/Songwriter Liz Graham‘s new single “Damaged” features a crisp folk-pop sound with nods to likes Sarah McLaughlin, Joni Mitchell and Ingrid Michaelson, and the kind of darker subject matter you’d expect from a song called “Damaged”. What’s interesting about the track is the instrumentation’s buoyant and Beatles-esque instrumentation being paired with the darkness of the subject matter. Although Graham is relating a story of a troubled woman’s attempts to rise above her current tumultuous mental state, the song’s music is upbeat, providing a glimpse of hope from the current tumult of her life.
The choice showcases Graham’s deft touch and quality ear, something she has no doubt gained in her years opening for the likes of Richie Havens and Paul Kantner (Jefferson Airplane), as well as performing at Lilith Fair in the late nineties and early aughts. After admirably turning down label deals in 2000 to care for an ill family member, Graham came back on the scene recently with a newfound love of performing. Keep your eyes on Graham’s site for new music and tour updates, as her sophomore album is due later this year. Check out the video for “Charcoal on a Canvas” below:
