Liz Meyer
The Storm (Strictly Country)

Bluegrass singer/songwriter Liz Meyer’s fourth release
for the Netherlands-based Strictly Country label
features an all-star cast of players, including Bela
Fleck, Emmylou Harris, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, and
Stuart Duncan. They provide delicious backup but it is
Meyer who is in complete control here, delivering a
batch of intriguing originals, each one an effective
vehicle for her distinctively husky voice. An American
based for some time in Europe, Meyer has achieved
widespread recognition overseas, and The Storm might
be the album that finally raises her profile in the US.
