Lizzie's second album "Easy To Love" interlaces the sweet charm of a southern belle with the deep complexity of the New York experience. A masterful ensemble that includes Xavier Davis on piano, Ron Affif on guitar, and many other notables such as Frank Lacy on trombone. "Lizzie is one of those songstresses that you "get" immediately. She has that vocal nuance, unique stylistic approach and quite frankly a fantastic voice." Thomas flows on such classics as "One Note Samba" "I've Got You Under My Skin" and "Our Love is Here To Stay."
It always seems that there has to be a story for us to recognize the talented, and here we have both. The story of Miss Thomas hailing from the Nashville music scene mixed with the depth of a New York Jazz experience. And what do you get from this downtown mixology? Musicians that are playing at the top of their game and Lizzie bringing them to a level that even amazes them.
