Lizzie West (born in Brooklyn, NY on July 21, 1973) is a singer/songwriter.
Her music can be described as a blend of many genres including country, folk, blues, pop, and rock.
Her current band is "Lizzie & Baba".
Her debut album, Holy Road: Freedom Songs, was released in 2003 on Warner Bros. Records.
It had to have been the album of 2003.
I know I'm still playing it.
This album earned her the title of Breaker Artist of the Year by both AOL and Entertainment Weekly.
It was recorded with her former band, the Gangs of Kosmos.
I know there was an EP last year Thank You for Giving Us... released under Lizzie & Baba.
But Lizzie we really need a new album, pretty please.
Meantime here's some of the previous magic to keep us going.
19 miles to Bagdad Live performance at Kulaks Woodshed with Baba Buffalo.
Some pure jazz vamping with a western twang.
Rope Me In and Smoke Me
Chariots Rise Chariots Rise, written by Lizzie West from the movie Secretary.
The acoustic version performed by Lizzie & Baba.
Any person who has shared space with the amazing Leonard Cohen has to be eternally thankful.
