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. At fourteen she picked up the guitar and has been hooked on the process of making music ever since.

In 1980, after years of travel with her family that allowed Ms. Frame to see dozens of US states and several continents, she and her family finally 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. Fronting her own band, she garnered serious interest from both major and independent record labels during this time, but ultimately decided against the rigors of the business to concentrate on family. Now that her daughter, a gifted working musician in her own right, is grown, she is once again free to pursue what she loves most – making infectious, heart-felt and at times raucous music that appeals to everyone from eight to eighty!

While Ms. Frame 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, a group of talented friends whose raw, acoustic sound and sweet harmonies help to deliver Ms. Frame’s material with distinction. They play regularly around Boston, northern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, and are fast becoming a favorite of the area.
