Outrageous Older Woman

by Liz Zelvin

A folk-country sound, lyrics to make you laugh and cry, rich acoustic backup and harmony vocals, with a smidgen of everything from gospel to klezmer make these songs from a poet, shrink, and storyteller not quite like anything you've heard before.

Album Notes
Outrageous Older Woman
The T-shirt came first, then the aspiration to grow into this role. My outrageousness is still evolving.
Vocals, guitar, banjo, bass

Online Loving
Inspired by my stepdaughter’s virtual romance, which ended happily in a wedding in Las Vegas and a permanent move from New York to London.
Vocals, guitar, bass

All She Ever Wanted
This woman won’t let anything come between her and her gift for making music.
Vocals, guitar, banjo, bass, fiddle, keyboard, drums & percussion

The Rain Came Down
This story about two people arriving at a crossroads in their lives came out of nowhere when it suddenly started to rain during a songwriting session in a field of wildflowers.
Vocals, keyboard, guitar, drums & percussion

Wedding Song
I wrote this song for my son and his fiancée as a surprise engagement present. I sang it at both their weddings, in Manila and New Jersey.
Vocals, keyboard, cello, flute

The Still
A fellow songwriter, told that I had worked with homeless alcoholics on the Bowery, said, “You must have a thousand stories.” I have indeed. This is one of them.
Vocals, guitar, banjo, penny whistle

God of Music
A woman’s journey from being silenced to finding her voice and from rage to healing. Dedicated to all survivors of abuse, especially those who sing.
Vocals, keyboard (organ), violin, cello, bass, drums & percussion

The Mayor of Central Park
Alberto Arroyo was a beloved and legendary New York character who inspired and encouraged generations of runners. To Alberto, every day, rain or shine, in Central Park was “a beautiful day.”
Vocals, guitar, bass, percussion

Creeping Age
Originally titled “Middle Age”. Some things get funnier between 45 and 65, others not so much. Dedicated to my friends from both high school and junior high.
Vocals, keyboard (accordion, tuba), guitar, drums & percussion

Mary, Mary
A song about a survivor caught between memory and healing.
Vocal, keyboard, cello, penny whistle

The House That I Called Home
A tribute to my extraordinary parents. A happy childhood—priceless.
Vocals, guitar, bass, keyboard (concertina)

Hell, No, We Won’t Go
A protest song, perennially relevant. Ideally, 100,000 people would sing along. In a perfect world, they wouldn’t need to.
Vocals, guitar, banjo, bass, keyboard (fife)

We’ve Come A Long Way
Long-term love, even when the world is falling apart.
Vocals, guitar, bass, violin, cello, flute

Sheldon, Please Come Home
Aficionados of Ashkenazic Jewish culture will recognize this as a somewhat embellished retelling of a classic shaggy dog story.
Vocals, clarinet, keyboard (accordion, sitar), guitar

Prayer (Next Year in Jerusalem)
Free download. An inclusive version of the words that end the traditional Jewish Seder each Passover. Incorporate it into your own Seder and share it with others.
Vocals, keyboard (harp), cello, flute

Two Tall Towers (bonus track)
A lifelong New Yorker, I was there on September 11, 2001. I wrote this song over the next two days as a way of coming to terms with the tragedy. Recorded live in Woodstock seven months later.
Vocals, guitar

Lois D'Amore

Outrageous and Exciting!
I have not heard anything this good since "Taking the Long Way" by the Dixie Chicks! Ms. Zalvin's music is thoughtful, timely, and insightful. The kind of songs you can sing along to, or just sit quietly, listen, and ponder the lyrics. I urge everyone who reads this review to check out this CD!

Nancy Pindrus

Outrageous Older Woman
This lady has the soul of a poet and the voice of her time and age. Moving lyrics that will resonate, especially with those of us no longer young, but remembering youth and all the rest.

Smart Songs
Liz Zelvin has written sixteen songs that are honest, smart, and funny in an album that is a sensitive expression of the “thousand lessons… learned along the way.” – Mike T. Lewis
