The beautiful and talented Elizabeth Huett performed at Mount Palomar Winery in Temecula, California this past Friday June 24. Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s been following this girl since she used to sing background vocals for Taylor Swift, we really wished we could’ve been there. According to Variety Beat, she put on a great show and was very open with the audience. I’m sending a most grateful shoutout to Variety Beat’s Jencita for all the pictures from the event! I’ve selected this one because it’s the one Liz chose herself.

You probably remember Liz has signed with Interscope Records and she has been working on her first album. Back during my interview with Liz in June 2015,  she revealed it would probably be an EP. That could’ve changed since she signed with Interscope, so I’m curious about her new songs. That being said, we still don’t have a date. Perhaps the end of summer.

Audio Showcase: Elizabeth Huett, Disparition, The Dear Hunter

Hello listeners,

Every once in a while, it feels good to remind yourself to listen to a few other songs than Taylor’s. These are just a few things that have been playing in my head lately.

To start with, Elizabeth Huett‘s What You Do To Me. This song was already known to me from her CMA Fest performance back in June. This sounds like a possible audio version, more polished but I love how the guitars predominate in this mix. The production is not taking away from the organic instrumentation. The song is not a ready-for-radio country song, but that’s a good thing. Adding twang for the sake of twang is just catering to one genre. Instead it’s more of a subdued rock ballad. I’d love a more urban, acoustic version which is not to say that I love this version any less. Not yet available for sale anywhere.

This might be a quite a depart from what I usually showcase, but since I’m a fan of the Welcome to Night Vale podcast, I’m going to throw a little electronic / ambient / industrial at you with Disparition‘s The Ballad of Fieldler and Mundt. Yes, there is a bit of a lovecraftian feel to Jon Bernstein’s composition, which is how this piece ended up being chosen as the theme for Night Vale’s Community Radio. This is from the Neukrk album available on Bandcamp and on iTunes. As a strange coincidence, they also have an older album called 1989… No resemblance or relation whatsoever.

I can’t quite tell you how I found The Dear Hunter. I mean, I can try. I was searching steampunk… gaming… video game reviews… then I heard the band mentioned on a youtube video from a cosplayer related to how it sounded like a video game soundtrack and logically I wanted to listen to it. Sometimes it’s just better to say you were browsing aimlessly and run into stuff. I don’t know, I like this track. Ominous, epic, definitely telling a bigger story but if you want to know everything this album is actually Act IV, now available on iTunes. Previous albums named Act III, Act II and Act I are also available.

Lizzettes and Lizards, lend me your ears!

Ok, thanks you can have them back. The beautiful and talented Elizabeth Huett will be playing Sin City on Thursday, October 1st at the House of Blues. The headliner is South of Graceland. Doors open at 7pm. Show starts at 7:30pm. You can get your tickets at LiveNation. I can’t make it. Hopefully someone else will.

Liz will also be appearing tonight at 3rd and Lindsey with the Damnwells. She just casually mention it an hour ago. So odds are only a few people will see/hear that. Nashville’s own Lightning 100 streamed the event (they’re on their last song for the radio stream as I type this).

Coming up in the Calendar!

Woot 🙂

I better start dreaming up some nicknames, the beautiful and talented Elizabeth Huett will be the main act at the 6th annual Sundresses & Cowboy Boots Country Music Festival. The festival takes place on the Longshadow Ranch Winery in Temecula, Southern California. You can read the original article at the Press Enterprise.

Liz spoke about meeting Taylor Swift back in December 2006 at the Brandin’ Iron in San Bernardino and how the Queen of Sparks advised her to move to Nashville. Elizabeth’s yet to be named album will have a “California country” vibe.

“The magic of songwriting comes from the everyday experiences,” Liz told Press Enterprise‘s Stephanie Shulte. “We wrack our brains and write about what’s going on in our lives.” You can read the original story here. You can find out ticket information here.

On Taylor Nation news, the Enchantress continues her Canadian leg in Edmonton, Alberta for two nights on August 4 and 5.

Coming up on the Calendar!
