"Live concert review 2010"

"Intoxicating; Her voice pulls you into her music and takes you deep into yourself. I can imagine that even people that are not truly intensive listeners, will be hooked. An uncut diamond, she shines away with her many facets."

- Rootstime Magazine

"South of Graceland"

Lizanne Knott has a vocal delivery that makes you turn around. She is talking to you. Her voice is conversational and intimate. When she comes through with her laundry list of what coulda been on ‘Why Baby Why’, the result for the listener is “what could I have done better”. When she opens ‘Sunday’ with the words “hey baby”, you are listening over the phone with hushed breathes, allowing her promises to wash over, sink in and light the future. Her minute by minute overviews on ‘Wonderful Day’ are streaming directly from one’s own thoughts. The loop is complete and connection is made. The personal tone and texture of Lizanne’s voice takes hold on each track of ‘South of Graceland’, her third including her self-titled debut (2003)‘ and ‘Under the Burning Sky’ (2006). Musically, the album relies on the purity of an acoustic performance mixing blues, folk/rock and jazz chord patterns and rhythms with those soul touching vocals and harmony convergences.
Lizanne has made her mark both musically and in actively expanding on the presence of independent artists. She is the Philadelphia host of the New York Songwriter’s Circle on World Cafe Live as well as managing partner of MorningStar Studios. Her travels take in both the U.S. shores and the U.K., where her presence has gone beyond venues and found her a repeat visitor on the Bob Harris show, BBC2 and other BBC stations.
