Album Notes
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.

Sure gonna miss you!
Another great album from Liz. I am going to miss the live shows, especially Stone Soup Coffee House in Rhode Island and New Bedford Summerfest. All worthwhile trips to New England.

Paul Arnold, Weston-super-Mare

As good as music gets
Probably should be 5 stars but this lady has a lot of reviews to come and she will make some great records. Lyrics that are beyond her years for life experience makes for not only wonderful music but also for reflection on your own experiences.

Liz will never really need that Whiskey.

Not a country fan BUT..
And that is a big BUT! I love this CD! It would get 5 stars, but I know that's still to come. Liz is a wonderfully talented musician and songwriter and that voice of hers really gets to me. It's been in my car for about 3 weeks, and I drive about 6 hours per week. I've listened to the CD many times and am still enjoying it. Thanks, Liz! I look forward to your next one!


Great range on the music & words. Very enjoyable
Fun music and realistic at the same time. Keeping the heart and brain together for full enjoyment. Diggin it at home, work and in the car. Thank heaven for these talented artists and their ability to share with me this music. I'll buy more than one.

Longing for Montana
Liz Carlisle's soulful voice and smart lyrics pulled me into her songs . . . .and made me miss Montana like hell

Erin Quillman

Excellent CD
Liz has a beautiful voice and the songs are wonderful!


Great (mostly) country sound with lyrics that relate and inspire
Big Dreams is the wonderful new CD by Liz Carlisle. From sadly relevant lines such as "I know it's just the whiskey but I'll pretend it's you," to the clear admiration expressed in Upstream, Carlisle and producer/accompanist Russell Wolff create a great album. The production is superior, with background vocals that blend in but do not overwhelm. I can't play it enough. Buy it, you won't be sorry!


Best Yet
Hard to believe Liz could top her debut Five Star Day but this one is the best yet. Upstream may be the best song I have ever heard. It will move you!! Thanks Liz.
