Liz Frame and the Kickers (from the album Sparrow in a Shoebox available on OPT Records)
As a way of explanation, Liz Frame and the Kickers open Sparrow in a Shoebox with the title track, the story speaking directly to those inner-voices and the committee of judges inside out individual heads. Liz Frame is the voice of encouragement, the depth of her belief a companion to her deep vocals. She envisions “Sparrow on a Shoebox” as the moment of flight when hesitation gets left back at home as steps are taken into the unknown, carried on winds of possibilities. The collection of tales on Sparrow in a Shoebox become a theme in their ability to be confidants, Liz Frame and the Kickers show a path for a walk through life as they wave goodbye to youth moving into the world (“Grown Children”), put a little Country rhythm under confessions (“Used to Be Your Slave”), face down a break-up (“What You Gonna Do When I Go”), and cast off woes (“I Don’t Worry No More”).
Based in Boston, Massachusetts, Liz Frame and the Kickers released their debut in 2011, Sparrow in a Shoebox the second full length release from the band. Sparrow in a Shoebox digs deep into emotions, the songs showing their compassion for the human condition as Liz admits to ‘being a lonely girl’ when Liz Frame and the Kickers go on the hunt in “Lookin’ for a Lonely Man”, shuffle into a Tex-Mex rhythm to give advice to “Ungrateful Girl”, and tenderly strum sentiment into “She’s Made of Love and Light”.
