San Francisco-based Singer/Songwriter LIZ KENNEDY Brings Her Soulful Sound To The Sleeping Lady May 9
SAN FRANCISCO – In support of her blues/folk inspired pop/rock album, Speed Bump, San Francisco-based singer/songwriter LIZ KENNEDY (www.lizkennedymusic.com) brings her soulful sound to The Sleeping Lady on Friday, May 9 at 9:30 p.m.
Performing with her is the Clean White Shirt Band. The venue is located at 23 Broadway Blvd., Fairfax, CA 94930, just outside of Kennedy's hometown of San Francisco.
Kennedy faced many a Speed Bump (also the title of her fourth full-length recording out now) both creatively and emotionally on the road to her exciting emergence in 2006 with her debut album Clean White Shirt. Now 63, fit, beautiful and full of the kind of life-affirming energy she could never have imagined before, she's very confident with her choice – and coincidentally inspiring others to take risks in middle age with the passions that drive them.
In addition to recording four critically-acclaimed albums, including A Good Peach and Nothing Like An Angel, Kennedy has performed over the years at such renowned Bay Area hotspots as the Razz Room and the Throckmorton Theater.
Her guitarist Joel Jaffe, who produced Speed Bump as well Kennedy's previous recordings, is a renowned Bay Area-guitarist, engineer and producer whose credits include Maria Muldaur, Lenny Williams and Magic Christian, has been one of the greatest influences on the singer's musical development. Along with Jaffe, other musicians performing with Kennedy at her upcoming show include drummer Billy Johnson (Santana, Maze, Joyce Cooling) and Omega Rae on back-up vocals.
Influenced by legendary artists like Bonnie Raitt, Paul Simon, Randy Newman and Carole King, and adds her own unique, inviting stamp of her sandpaper and honey tinged vocals on Speed Bump's 14 dynamic folk/blues influenced pop/rock tracks. From the high-flying gospel/blues-driven opening title track through the whimsical, horn-fired closing track expressing her long held desire to write "A Hit Song,” Kennedy tells cleverly-spun, deeply-lived stories about experiences that she could have barely fathomed having, let alone writing about.
