Discover warm in the dark

Liz Stringer.
Liz Stringer.

HER new album is perfectly titled. Liz Stringer's music veers just the right side of melancholy - it's an occasionally intimate portrait of an accomplished artist, with peaks of joy and smooth, warm vocals.

The new album - her fourth - is called Warm in the Darkness, and it's a gem of a thing with emotive storytelling at its beating heart.

Long time collaborators drummer Adam May and bassist Tim Keegan, and new guitarist Van Walker have helped Liz grow her sound from her last solo release - self played and non amplified - to a louder rock swagger.

The album features performances from renowned Aussie musicians including Matt Walker, Suzannah Espie and Craig Pilkington.

The tracks fuse blues and folk, Australian stories and Americana flourishes to build on her unique contemporary country sound.

Liz is no stranger to these parts - she's toured here before, and each time, the crowd gets bigger.

She's a word of mouth kind of artist; the kind that has to be seen to be believed.

Liz Stringer and support Van Walker are playing at No. 5 Church Street, May 12, 8.30pm.
