Biography

Liza Day and the Northbound Trestle Singers are a 5-piece Midwest Americana band rooted in Chicagos young, alternative-country tradition. The band was founded in 2008, by singer/song-writer and Wisconsin native, Liza Day, a graduate and former artist in residence of The Contemporary Music Center in Marthas Vineyard, MA. Liza, 27, leads the band with a voice unforgettably warm and pure, skillfully combined with a performance as vulnerable and sincere as the songs themselves. The bands musical style is described as straight-forward classic country, layered with a raw, untidy, rockabilly vibe. In August, 2009, they released their debut album entitled, Liza Day and the Northbound Trestle Singers, recorded and produced in Chicago. Since then, the band has completed several successful tours on the east coast and in the Midwest. In home-base Chicago, they continue to play many well-known local venues including; Schubas, Fitzgeralds, Bottom Lounge, and recently opened for national touring artist Sahara Smith. Before All Turns Grey, from their debut album was recently chosen as part of the score for the documentary, Out of Respect, directed by award winning film-maker, Tess Gallum. The band is currently touring and working toward release of their next EP in December, 2011. Members include Liza Day (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Ben Abney (lead guitar), Adam Wisz (drums/background vocals), Justin Ferwerda (bass) and Natalie Ferwerda (background vocals/keys/percussion).
