A recent graduate of Berklee College of Music, Liz Longley is already showing signs of becoming the next acoustic powerhouse. In 2010, Liz received the first place award for the BMI John Lennon Scholarship, the Grand Prize International Acoustic Music Award (amongst 9,000 entries), the Chris Austin Songwriting Award and appeared at the Newport and Rocky Mountain Folk Festivals. In 2009, Longley garnered first place in the Rocky Mountain Folk Fest Songwriter Showcase, and was co-winner of the Mountain Stage New Song Contest, among several other honors.
Liz is particularly highly regarded for her personal, emotionally engaging songwriting. John Mayer has called her music “gorgeous… just gorgeous” and the Washington Post has said “this voice wont stay small long.” She is actively touring, selling out rooms such as Tupelo Music Hall in NH, Club Passim in MA, Chaplin’s Music Cafe in PA and Night Cat in MD. Liz has opened for Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole, Nanci Griffith, Amos Lee, Colin Hay, Crowded House, Jesse Colin Young, Jonathan Edwards and Livingston Taylor.
