ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This holiday tune was written by award winning songwriter, Liz Mandeville, who puts a blues twist on the old warning to children that Santa is watching them! With sultry slide guitar from Dutch International Blues Challenge winner, Peter Struijk, sexy blues harp from West side creeper, Martin Lang, and a groove you can't improve courtesy of Jim Godsey and Delmark recording artist Rockin Johnny Burgin, Liz purrs the lyrics with a honey dripping voice that's sure to satisfy your Christmas sweet tooth!

Liz Mandeville was inducted into the Chicago Blues Hall of Fame in 2013. Her credits include 4 all original CD's for Earwig Music Co and two chart topping CD's for her own Blue Kitty Music imprint. In addition to songwriting and singing, Liz plays electric and acoustic guitar, washboard & porch-board. She's performed at festivals and music venues all over the world, played on 3 continents in 11 different countries over the past 3 decades and people say she just keeps getting better.

Liz is also a journalist for www.ChicagoBluesGuide.com where she writes the column "Inside the Blues" and she's a community DJ for WNUR.org' Sunday Blues Show. She holds a BA in music from Chicago's Columbia College where she did extensive research into American music, blues history and business and women's contribution to the blues. Liz uses this knowledge to present Blues In the Schools programs and workshops at festivals.

If that's not enough, she also paints and currently has an exhibit of her work, "Views from the Van" on display at Clarksdale MS's Rock & Blues Museum. You should visit there, it's a great museum!

"I'm all about paying it forward, " Liz said in a recent interview. "I love to involve my friends in my music projects, that's why you hear such a great band on this cut! And I support the American Red Cross in it's efforts around the globe to give aid in times of disaster. I don't have to be in pain to empathize with those who are. This season is a great time to give back."

That's exactly what Liz is doing with these holiday songs. A portion of the proceeds from sales of Watch Out For Santa and What Does Christmas Mean to You will be donated to the Red Cross for their ongoing efforts around the globe. Please down load these songs and support a good cause. It's only pennies to you, but together we can make a difference. Thanks!
