At the end of a very painful breakup, Lizzie Weber harnessed her emotions in a set of songs that were too painful to perform. Now, some four years later, the scars have lost much of their sting. The results found on her E.P. You, document the relationship’s dissolution and the damage it did to her psyche.
“Most singer-songwriters can pen a halfway decent breakup tune, but it takes a deft touch to craft aching odes to relationships’ ends while still maintaining a composed confidence devoid of melodrama. Seattle singer-songwriter Lizzie Weber pulls off the feat on her new 3-song EP, You.” - Seth Sommerfeld, Seattle Weekly
Song Premiere: Listen to the premiere of “Monster” on The Bluegrass Situation.
Weber weaves a poignantly poetic folk tapestry in “Catcher,” an intimate moment of love, loss, truth, and dreams. Her words are particularly expressive as she allows herself to dwell in subjects until their well has dried up; she explores the purpose and meaning of her dreamcatcher (from whence the song takes its name), delving seamlessly into her reasons for having it (night terrors and bad dreams as a result of traumatic loss), and so on.
Lizzie Weber provides the heart with a dim lit dive bar and a shot of whiskey for the shattered pieces that you just might put it through. I’m literally imagining my 20-year-old heart outside of my body and sobbing to her music at that bar.
