Originally a singer/songwriter from St. Louis, MO, Lizzie Weber released her debut full-length album in January 2014. Lizzie’s roots in St. Louis have a lot to do with a woman so grounded. “I feel as though growing up in St. Louis allowed me to develop strong values and a strong sense of self, a kind of self-awareness that sort of catapulted me into writing very personal and emotionally charged music.”
Lizzie is, indeed steeped in music, like her hometown. Her debut was well received by the public. Huffington Post dubbed her single “Falling Like Fools” ‘your new favorite song about heartbreak,’ while the music video for the track has been an official selection at seven international film festivals around the world and won awards at two of them. Most recently, it was selected out of 2,000 submissions to screen at the Reel Teal Film Festival, where it won “Best Music Video of 2016.” No Depression called her debut “a confessional record, but one that is very well-handled, never straying into the over-dramatic, but instead honing in on a sound which is personal, powerful, and, at times, perfect.”
Following the success of her debut, Lizzie appeared on the cover of the Riverfront Times in January of 2015, and was interviewed for Arts America on PBS. She has performed with such acclaimed songwriters as Academy Award-winner Marketa Irglova (the Swell Season/Once), John Gorka, Crystal Bowersox, and Tiny Ruins.
In fall of 2015, Lizzie produced a rendition of Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box,” released on iTunes November 30. On April 26th of this year, she released a single called “Love Again” produced by Grammy-award winner Sheldon Gomberg. She is currently preparing to record her sophomore album.
