Liz is a former member of Hannah, Lessick, Lines In Analog Sound, and Sun of Mercury. She mostly plays a 1962 Gibson LG 1 acoustic, and she has several vintage electric guitars, her favorite of which is a 1965 Mustang.

We met up with Liz at Samovar on Saturday afternoon to hear about her new EP that she recorded with Eric Haller in Berkeley, her recent European tour with Jonah Matranga, and all other things music.

Liz is playing a free show this evening at Adobe Books with Jonah Matranga, so stop by and check them out!

How long have you been playing music?
10 years

Tell us about your new EP.
It's called Receptionist Movement, and it has four songs that grew out of my home recordings in the winter of 2005. It will eventually become a full-length album that I have been recording with Eric Haller in his home studio in Berkeley. My MySpace page has rough mixes of the recent four songs.

Where did you go on your tour?
Berlin, London, Wales, Paris, Geissen, and then back to Berlin.

Who did you tour with?
Jonah Matranga. We've been friends for almost 20 years. He's been in many bands and lately he has been touring as a solo acoustic act. He's got a great following over there and his fans were very gracious. It was great because his fans took the time to listen to my music online before the shows and that felt good.
