"The music of Lady Grey - a lush blend of folk, blues and country, with enough Lucinda Williams to warrant serious commendation - is ideal for the narrative course. Like the hidden meaning that lies at the heart of the album's title, Lady Grey gives us plenty to explore." - PATRICK EMERY, BEAT.

Lizanne Friebel took out first place with song ‘Of Wifely Constitution’ in the Good Folk Club Competition, 2007. The prizes set in motions a new stunning mini-album recording which in turn was entitled 'Of Wifely Constitution'. The album was launched to a full house at The Toff in Town on 5th November. A mini-tour followed with dates in Hepburn Springs and Geelong.

Lady Grey are a four piece acoustic indie band who possess a musicality which can best be described as spacious and atmospheric. Their original songs borrow from folk, blues and country and at the same time possess a cosmopolitan sensibility. Lyrics are rarely written with such a blend of soul and smarts.

With the sugar of blues ladies, classic and contemporary, Nina Simone and Chan Marshall, Lizanne leads with a voice of earthy otherworldliness. The musicianship sensibilities of Jacob Cole, Catherine Leslie and Ralf Rehak combine to make each song unique. Ralf Rehak (of Machine Translations) on drums provide great percussive force and feeling. Jacob Cole's intuitive lead and slide guitar has a rare chic. Catherine Leslie on violin adds texture and colour as well as tight vocal harmonies. Lizanne's lead vocals are commanding and her connection to the emotional content of the songs is evident.

Recorded and mixed by Buzz Bahlaw at Intergalactic Studios and mastered by Jack the Bear, 'Of Wifely Constitution' is Lady Grey’s strongest release to date and is worthy of some serious listening and hype. IT IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE AT POLYESTER RECORDS, 387 BRUNSWICK STREET, FITZROY. AlSO AT READINGS BOOKSTORE, 309 LYGON STREET, CARLTON.

"Finally a singer-songwriter has emerged from the Music Melbourne scene - via Africa and London - to bring a sassy cosmopolitanism to folk music." - K.Z CARROLL, REAL TIME ARTS.

"Lizanne has a great voice and a strong sense of flavouring her performance with attention to the emotion carried in her songs." - Judge's comment from Good Folk Song Competition 2007.

Taran Carter (guitar, vocals) and Caitlin Williams (flute, vocals) have been performing together for over 8 years. They first met at the VCA whilst both studying music. Three years ago they saw the light and moved to Lancefield.

With hints of modern folk, early baroque and acoustic pop music their songs are tied together by Caitlin’s virtuosic and gutsy flute playing and Taran’s award winning compositions.

Taran and Caitlin have performed at MAD Gallery several times in the past, both with their band Tehai and as a duo.

 

If Jethro Tull and Paul Simon had a love child it would sound something like this.
