With a combination of lyrical honesty and charming melodies, Brisbane based musician Lizzie Flynn writes songs that blend a little satirical storytelling with a lot of joyful emotion.
She will be on the road in support of her newly released album, You and The Open Sky, a collection of original songs which weave audiences through toe-tapping country to tender ballads with songs of lessons learnt and love lost.
Together with her band, Lizzie Flynn & The Reckoning, the singer-songwriter and guitarist will have the added acoustic sounds of violin, mandolin, banjo and double bass, as well as an array of special musical guests in support slots.
She has been a vocalist and songwriter in for a variety of bands and theatrical productions, and has toured throughout Australia. She recently performed at the 2016 Folk by the Sea (Kiama, NSW), Bellingen Turtle Festival (NSW), Coast Acoustic Music Festival (QLD), Cygnet Folk Festival (Tasmania) and Illawarra Folk Festivals (NSW) with her band, Lizzie Flynn & The Reckoning.
Lizzie has produced several independent albums, including Hush, which received an Arts Queensland Grant, with the title track being called ‘stunning’ by Noel Mengel of The Courier Mail.
