Nashville-based folk rocker Liz Cooper will headline a concert at The ELM on August 2, 2022.

We saw Liz rock out in Missoula when she opened for Susto in 2018 and again when she headlined in 2019.

Since her 2014 debut Monsters, Liz Cooper has released several live and studio albums. She unveiled her most recent project, Hot Sass, in 2021. Relix reviewed the album saying, “Hot Sass is a fantastic next step for Cooper; there’s excitement around every corner.”

Liz Cooper has toured with Lord Huron, Deer Tick, Rayland Baxter, Ron Gallo, Blitzen Trapper, Houndmouth, Tyler Childers and also played Firefly Festival and LouFest.

NPR has given Liz high praise, saying they “manage a seamless balance of muted rhythmic sounds and propulsive drive that feels so good.”

About Liz Cooper

On the porch of her one-time Nashville home, Liz Cooper had a multimedia project that combined two of her loves: lips and cigarettes. She painted her own lips with red paint and kissed a canvas two or three hundred times, later dotting them with the detritus left behind in ashtrays by her friends. An overlap of intimacy, indulgence, cheekiness, and sensuality, the piece complements Cooper’s roiling second record, Hot Sass. Over jagged, frenetic guitar parts, Cooper sets expectations aflame with the record’s title track. Her songs unfurl like smoke spiraling off an incense cone late in the afternoon, with Cooper pushing deeper into psychedelic openness, punk ferocity, and beyond.

Hot Sass marks multiple departures for Liz Cooper: from her nine-year home of Nashville, from her band addendum of the Stampede, from any genre-burdened expectations she’d accumulated over the years. After heavy touring in support of 2018’s Window Flowers, where her songs stretched out in live settings, she felt constricted by the Americana-adjacent associations that the Stampede carried. So with her bandmates’ blessing, she dropped the moniker, pursuing sounds and songs that let her chase the inspiration lent to her by the likes of Courtney Love, Lou Reed, and David Bowie.
