Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

LIZ KENNEDY

Speed Bump

2014-06-06

Singer-songwriter Liz Kennedy's publicist describes her music as "dynamic folk/blues influenced pop/rock" which means it really isn't much of anything. She's found a groove - or perhaps a rut - and kept to it. Her singing is barely more ornamented than regular speech, laid over inoffensive and unmemorable backing. She'll sing 3 words, pause, then 5 more, pause, then maybe another 3, another pause, and continue on in that fashion for 3 to 5 minutes. Heartfelt, but ultimately negligible. -Gerald Etkind
