Liz Frame and the Kickers
While Ms. Frame delivers her songs with strong, distinctive vocals that fall somewhere between Dwight Yoakum’s twang and k.d lang’s soul, one can’t listen to her music without also hearing the influences of people like Merle Haggard or Johnny Cash. She is backed live by her band, the Kickers, a group of talented friends whose raw, acoustic sound and sweet harmonies help to deliver Ms. Frame’s material with distinction. They play regularly around the north shore of Massachusetts and are fast becoming a favorite of the area.
Liz Frame: vocals and guitar
Kristine Malpica: percussion and vocals
Lynne Taylor: bass and vocals
Chuck Melchin: guitars, mandolin and vocals
