Half & Half
Montana native and Harvard graduate Liz Carlisle was best known as a frequent opening act for country artists like LeAnn Rimes, Sugarland, Miranda Lambert, Travis Tritt, Little Big Town, and Diamond Rio during the touring seasons of 2006 and 2007. She began her career on the New England folk circuit while still a student at Harvard, opening for singer-songwriters like Richie Havens, Catie Curtis, and John Gorka, and released her first full record as a college senior. Five Star Day earned Liz press in the Boston Globe, Washington Post, and BBC and won her honors in several national and international competitions. She released a second record in 2007, Big Dreams, a Nashville studio effort that spent 18 weeks on the Music Row Chart. Although Big Dreams was Liz's most visible national release, she is perhaps best remembered for the song 'Montana,' the hit track from Five Star Day that remains a favorite in her home state. Half & Half was Liz's first demo after moving to Boston. Includes the version of 'The Water is Wide' featured in Mitsui's national advertising campaign in Japan. Also includes 'Take Me Home,' written by Liz's dad Ray, who plays guitar on several songs.
