Liz Longley, the self-titled fourth studio album from singer/songwriter and dual-instrumentalist by the same name is set to drop March 17 on Sugar Hill Records. Produced by Gus Berry at Ocean Way Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, the album features sequencing and several new mixes from Sugar Hill’s Vice President of A&R and GRAMMY award – winning engineer and producer Gary Paczosa(Alison Krauss, Dolly Parton, Sarah Jarosz).

“It felt like a dream come true and worth every second of the wait,” says Longley regarding her offer from Sugar Hill, “I am so excited about working with this group. I can’t wait to see this album reach its full potential.”

While Longley’s songs and voice can be compared to the likes of Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole and Nanci Griffith—all artists she’s supported live—her latest effort spotlights a style and confidence that’s all her own. The album features appearances by renowned world class musicians including Michael Rhodes, Nir Zidkyahu, Tom

Bukovac, Danny Rader, John Hobbs, JT Corenflos, Marco Giovino, Maddie Berry & Allen Salmon, who boast previous work recording and playing with Wynonna Judd, Reba McEntire, John Mayer, Tanya Tucker, Dolly Parton, Jason Mraz, Randy Travis, Faith Hill, and many other musical greats.

Longley believes her move to Nashville in 2011 had a big influence on the sound of this album. “It was amazing and humbling having all of these talented musicians play on my album, and it was just mind blowing working with Gary,” says Longley. “He brought the songs he mixed to life. The vocal is so present and it feels like a more intimate performance, those details really show his genius.”

Longley views authenticity in her songwriting as the most important element, and this album features Longley’s personal experiences. That authenticity has paid off and Longley has been honored with top prizes including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship Competition, the International Acoustic Music Awards and the Rocky Mountain Folk Fest Songwriting Competition.

Longley’s stunning vocal prowess and songwriting capabilities provide the perfect balance in this collection of intimate and moving tales. Longley’s Sugar Hill Records debut arrives March 17, 2015.
