Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page
Brown began her professional singing career at the age of 3, performing
in a cowgirl costume at her grandparents' gas station in the pine
barrens of New Jersey. Liz got her first guitar when she was
14 and taught herself to play from a Joan Baez song book.
Liz Brown is a talented singer, songwriter, and guitarist. Her music is a fusion of jazz, blues, and funk. Her high energy vocals are often accompanied by her agile slide and rhythm guitar work. It is definitely cool when she plays the Swampbox. The swampbox (pictured here) is one funky guitar made from a finely tuned cigar box and a few sticks.
Her band includes Ben Karp on lead guitar, Dave Miner on bass, Clayton Daspit on Rhythm/Lead Guitar, and Craig Overton on drums.
