When I recorded my CD, "What I Want", I was very excited to finally be making my own musical statement. It was wonderful to be creating with excellent musicians & singers and to be recording songs that I had written or co-written and others that I just loved. I was very proud of the results and still am.
Here are some of things people said about "What I Want":
The Muse's Muse
By Stacey Board
From the first track you are struck by the power and grace of Liz Tansey’s voice. It has pleasing strength, range and emotion. This woman can sing
the blues. And the ballads, and all in between.
By Genevieve Will
Bringing strongly emotive, sultry vocals to a seemingly sterile female blues artist environment is Liz Tansey’s album What I Want. With its lush, generous instrumentation and sultry blues-inspired vocals, the album straightforwardly makes its point, although cushioned by a little velvet subtlety supplied by Tansey’s sheer smooth talking.
Canada's Liz Tansey has a very good CD here. I liked what I heard, I expected a folk rocker but Liz's CD is a blues tinged blast of fresh air. Starting with the rockin' "Struck by Love", it moves into the touching ballad ode to her mother in "Mama Lie's".
Words and Music
Liz Tansey is a blues singer at heart and a darn good one at that...with a set of songs that let her colourful, throaty voice work its magic.
