About Liz Frame & The Kickers
Liz Frame wrote her first song at age nine, and has been performing her own brand of rootsy Americana music since her early teens. She spent her childhood listening to the artists her parents loved — Jimmie Rogers, The Weavers, B.B. King, Elvis Presley — to name just a few, absorbing their sounds and ultimately allowing them to influence her own.
In 1980, Liz settled outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Shortly thereafter, she began seriously pursuing a career in music, becoming an active member of the country music/rockabilly scene in the city during the eighties and nineties.
While Liz delivers her songs with strong, distinctive vocals that fall somewhere between Dwight Yoakum’s twang and k.d lang’s soul, one can’t listen to her music without also hearing the influences of people like Merle Haggard or Johnny Cash. She is backed live by her band, The Kickers —John Webb on lead guitar, Sean Hennessy on bass, and Pete Whitehead on drums — and together they hit the road every summer, play regularly up and down the east coast, and are building a resume that includes many of the best venues and festivals in the country.
