Frame is a fine front woman, a singer who possesses not only a cool confidence, but also an ideal blend of soul, sophistication and sensuality. Some critics have compared her singing to Patsy Cline and Linda Ronstadt, while others have noted similarities in her songwriting to the work of Dolly Parton and Lucinda Williams.
“Once in a while an album cuts right to your heart. Liz Frame and the Kickers’ ‘Sooner’ is that record. Every track is a startling, well-honed gem filled with Liz’s powerful,experience-rich vocals that sometimes suggest a crossbetween the passion of theIndigo Girls and the candor of Lucinda Williams. Above all, this is funky,flowing,electro-acoustic music with spirit and a positive world view, as in ‘Win'(a story song about conquering demons) and clever romancers’Come Back to Me’ and’God Doesn’t Like His Women Left Alone.’ Frame has immense talent and the musicianship from the Kickers is stellar, augmented by some all-star Boston studio aces such as guitarists Bobby Keyes, Duke Levine, and Kevin Barry. Count yourself lucky if you get to hear this.” — Steve Morse, music critic, Billboard & Rolling Stone.
“I love Liz Frame’s voice. It’s the perfect combination of the velvet-wrapped sultriness of Margo Timmins…and the earnest, yet vulnerable directness of Emmylou Harris. She showcases that wonderful voice, with the help of her band – The Kickers, on their new EP, Justine.” – Family Reunion Country
