Watch List: Liz Vice Says 'Empty Me Out'
Faith is an important part of life for many, offering comfort and confidence in the face of the vicissitudes of this worldly existence and succor to the soul when times are hard. Liz Vice knows about hard times. Poverty, ill-health and family dislocation have all shaped the Portland-native, but faith and a passion for music have sustained her, allowing her to summon the confidence to step from her profession behind the camera onto the musical stage with her retro-soul and r'n'b-infused gospel sensibility. Making a name for herself in recent times on the Portland music scene - including a standout opening set for retro-soul men-of-the-moment St. Paul & the Broken Bones - Vice last year released her 'There's A Light' album, and here she steps into the Bungalo 9 recording studio for OPBWeb to showcase the richly reverent emotion that fuels her voice as she pours out her soul with a moving entreaty, blessing listeners of all persuasions while asking for her own.
