Enjoy a living room concert with contemporary folk musician Lizzie No (BA ‘13) whose original sound has been lauded by Rolling Stone and Billboard Magazine, followed by a Q& led by co-term senior / singer / songwriter / music producer Clarissa Carter.

About Lizzie No

With the release of her debut album, 'Hard Won,' in March 2017, singer-songwriter, harpist, and guitarist Lizzie No established herself as one of the most exciting new voices in contemporary folk music. Billboard Magazine called the album “simultaneously understated and fervent” and Paste Magazine dubbed her "the best of what's next." She followed up the album with the release of “Sundown,” a benefit track for Black Lives Matter.

Building on the songwriting prowess displayed in her critically acclaimed debut album, Lizzie No is unsparing in the stories she tells on her new album 'Vanity,' released August 2, 2019. The nine songs on ‘Vanity’ are epic tales of ego, featuring narrative shifts within vividly crafted characters. Rolling Stone called the single “Narcissus” a "crisp alt-rock gem" and a "song you need to know." Inventive arrangements written in collaboration with co-producer Nick Rapley elevate the record to shimmering heights.

No has showcased at Americanafest, South by Southwest, the Norman Music Festival and the Mile of Music Festival. Classical arrangements of her songs have been performed at the Louisville Orchestra's Festival of American Music and the Downtown Chamber Series in Phoenix, AZ. She is also a winner of the American Songwriter Magazine Lyrics Contest.
