Liz Asaro reveals new single All The Good People
Hot on the heels from the success of her previous releases Take Me Home, and 1000 Years which were playlisted on regional radio throughout the UK and was supported by several club remixes – NYC songstress Liz Asaro is back with her eclectic new single All The Good People – fusing together a contemporary but fresh alternative sound, with a dynamic pop edge.
Written during an inspired studio moment with producer Dimitri Tikovoi (Charli XCX, Sophie Ellis-Bextor), Asaro makes a point in referencing the difficult socio-cultural landscape that the world finds itself in on All The Good People, and specifically ‘’the never-ending debate on whether there is more good in the world than bad’’. The powerful instrumentation draws energy from catchy Imagine Dragons-esque chants and pounding drum hits, crossed with light alternative guitars and – of course – Asaro’s impassioned vocal. With Biffco’s Ash Howes (One Direction, Ellie Goulding, Dido) on mix duties, All the Good People is the result of Asaro and her production team perfecting her mix of ‘real’ instrumentation with electronic and percussive elements.
Wearing her heart on her sleeve when it comes to her artistry – ‘’I’m authentic, I’m real, and I’m by default passionate about everything I do’’ – Asaro’s music is nothing but genuine, drawing influence from her experiences of growing up in Rhode Island and raising a family within the hustle of Manhattan, New York City.
A latecomer in taking her music professionally, Asaro read psychology at the University of Rochester and worked in commercial interior design, whilst nurturing her love of music through playing in cover bands. When the time came for her to start writing originals, she had a backing band ready with legendary credentials, in guitarist Gerry Leonard, drummer Sterling Campbell and bassist Tim Lefebrve; all of whom have worked with David Bowie in the past, plus Empire of the Sun and Rufus Wainwright also feature on their individual credits.
Asaro recently collaborated with the acclaimed NYC collective The Loser’s Lounge – as seen on TV in Comedy Central’s The Daily Show – performing The Heartbreakers’ classic Mary Jane’s Last Dance as part of a tribute to legendary musician Tom Petty.
Her debut EP is on the horizon, which will no doubt entail further exciting additions to her live schedule and there’s much more new music to come.
