Listening to Liz Longley is like diving into a vivid dream, moody and somehow both familiar and strange. At first, the dream belongs exclusively to Longley. But as she sings what she's trying to knowâ€“â€“her lovers, her place, herselfâ€“â€“her fierce candor shatters any walls that may have separated us, and the dream we're swimming in becomes more than just Longley's. It becomes ours.
"I've found that people respond most to the songs I've been most open and honest in," Longley says. "When I write, I want to put my own story in it and make sure others hear their own in it, too."
That winning transformation of the personal into the universal plays brilliantly on Weightless, the highly anticipated follow-up to Longley's eponymous 2015 Sugar Hill Records debut, which garnered praise from American Songwriter, Huffington Post, CMT Edge, and more.
