Highly acclaimed singer-songwriter Liz Cass has unveiled the eagerly anticipated debut album “The Words” via Ultra Records.
This brand-new album captures a pivotal moment for Liz and plays as a process of healing. Through its warm synths and bouncy electro-pop, it presents an intimate insight into overcoming depression, anxiety and resilience to ADHD.
The album represents breaking from the darkest depths and stepping into the light, fully embracing the ebbs and flows of life to showcase the strength gained from overcoming challenging times and pouring this into honest, heartfelt songs. As Liz Cass declares in the album’s opening line, “This is my confessional…”
Speaking about the album Liz says, “When I think about the journey of writing The Words, I feel all kinds of emotions and it feels quite surreal that it’s now out in the world. I didn’t start out with the intention of writing an album. I didn’t even know if I was capable of that. The writing sessions with Ed Graves at Rainbow Wood Studios in Bath became my sanctuary and escape.”
Liz continued “The sessions became a vehicle for processing life experiences that had been challenging, a way to heal and a way to find a way back to myself. It gradually became easy, pouring all of myself into the music. Three years later and these 12 songs that make up The Words feel like a diary of musical therapy sessions! Documenting my highs, lows, things I find ugly about myself, my hopes and fears and my loves and losses.”
This album features a charismatically charged tracklist that contains a vast variety of heartfelt & emotionally stimulating compositions that reflects the naturally communing & creative heart of this deeply talented musician.
A number of my favourite songs from this album include “Confessional”, “Shaken”, “Something Real”, & “Ivy Walls”. However, each track is one that I would be more than happy to listen to again & again.
Liz delivers a passionate & emotionally driving performance throughout this album that comes from the personal essence that exudes from each song & showcases the naturally drawing elements of the extraordinary vocals this artist possesses.
Overall, this album is an exciting statement of the dynamic creativity this talented musician retains & a compelling exhibition of musical brilliance that will leave a lasting impression for years to come.
