Lydia Liza eats red flags for breakfast. Not a lot of artists can wear the “teenage musical prodigy” hat and go on to find success as an adult. Not a lot of artists can write a smash novelty holiday song and go on to transcend the “viral sensation” label. But Lydia Liza taught herself guitar at 14, and has always been in this for the long haul. Lydia’s work ethic, not to mention her sharp, forward-thinking songwriting skills, has paid off. She’s shared the stage with artists like The Goo Goo Dolls, Kimya Dawson, Atmosphere, Dessa, Dead Man Winter, Chastity Brown, and many others, and is currently working on two projects: a full-length collaboration with producer Big Cats, and a new band and full-length under Lydia Liza (featuring Jessica Anderson of Enemy Planes, Jimmy Osterholt of Savage Moods, Jillian Rae and Gospel Machine, and Kelly Blau of Rachel Hanson).
Radiochurch is a group based in Minneapolis, MN whose honest, feel good music has been making waves in the Twin Cities. Each member brings their own unique perspective and style, creating a fluid and dynamic experience that lends itself to any music lover. In their first year together they performed as a finalist at the Paisley Park Battle of the Bands.
Recorded at The Hideaway Studios with producer Jason McGlone (Nooky Jones, McNasty Brass Band) in Minneapolis, Radiochurch’s debut album was recently release in October 2018. Citizens Band is the culmination of over a year of collaborative writing and arranging which serves as the foundation for Ellis Cleve’s heartfelt lyrics that speak of hopes, dreams, and love, but also of the realities of the disenfranchised in America. From the feel good, danceable groove of “Good Vibes” to the more melodic stylings of “Paradise”, Citizens Band takes you on a genre bending journey and also packs a powerful lyrical message.
