Liz Stringer is one of Australia’s most admired and versatile songwriters and instrumentalists. A venerated guitarist and vocalist, her notoriously powerful live
performances and melodically rich, story-based songs have earned her a unique place among the most important Australian songwriters of the modern era.
2019 saw the release of collaborative project Dyson Stringer Cloher’s self-titled debut album through Melbourne’s Milk! records to wide media acclaim and a sold out headline tour and Stringer was honoured at Woodford Folk Festival as an emerging legend of Australian song; with a performance of selections from her back catalogue by her musical peers.
Liz Stringer’s sixth studio album—First Time Really Feeling— through Milk! Records /Remote Control Records, is a ten-song collection documenting a recent reckoning and metamorphosis for the acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter.
Recorded at Toronto’s Union Sound Company and produced and engineered by Chris Stringer (no relation to Liz, and known for his work with Timber Timbre and the Rheostatics), this will no doubt be regarded as Stringer’s seminal work and her most searingly personal: a musical time-capsule of love, loss and legacy, profound change and her recent path to self-acceptance.
Any fan of Stringer’s will testify to the strength of her live performances, and this album is arranged much like one of her iconic gigs.
Beloved equally for her rock stylings, knee-buckling ballads and a world-class lyrical and story-telling prowess that sees her write affectingly from a staggering range of perspectives, First Time Really Feeling showcases Stringer at the top of her game.
Emotional, unflinching, expansive and revealing—this album is unmistakably Australian music at its finest, and is, without question, Liz Stringer at her best.
