Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Liz Longley/Barnaby Bright/Noon

When: Sat., July 26, 8 p.m. 2014

Berklee-educated singer-songwriter Liz Longley hones her approach to songwriting to a fine point: She’s got a beautiful, textured voice that mingles well with simple instrumentation and a powerful message or two. “This is Not the End,” the single of her forthcoming album, is a really great spot to start if you haven’t heard her stuff. The achingly harmonized breakup song distinguishes itself from contemporaries via Longley’s impassioned intonations. She can stir up a captivated audience with just a few syllables, we’ll wager. For more of the goods, check out 2012’s Inside This Song, which is a bit more stripped down than the new single, but still offers the same depth and clarity Longley has marked uniquely as her own. Word is John Mayer called her music "gorgeous, simply gorgeous,” so there’s that too. (Sandy)
