"Lizanne sings so sweet she makes birds jealous" Phil Roy
A long standing member of the singer-songwriter scene in Philadelphia, Lizanne Knott has been captivating audiences throughout the Northeast and garnering attention from radio listeners in places as far away as Australia and the UK. Well known locally for her understated music, floating vocals and lyrical juxtapositions, her apparent depth and transcending warmth make for an inviting mix of music which moves easily through dark poetic ballads - to soulfull jazz - to folk driven rock.
Lizanne has performed at some of the most prestigious listening venues in the Northeast including: The Kimmel Center, Club Passim, The Bitter End, The Tin Angel, World Cafe Live, Steel City CH, ASCAP Showcases, Sundown Concert Series, Philadelphia Folk Festival and more.
She has been featured on the acclaimed Bob Harris Show on London''s BBC2 as well as AAA college radio and her music has been used in independant films and by national non-profit organizations.
Together with husband - GRAMMY Award winning producer/engineer, Glenn Barratt - who''s credits include work with Sting, Elton John, Janis Ian, Jill Scott, Susan Werner, Phil Roy and a host of their friends (who happen to be some of the most renowned session players around) she merges her delicately soulful sound with some of todays most innovative music.
"Hauntingly delicate vocals. For some would-be singer-songwriters, life often gets in the way of their dreams. But for Lizanne Knott, it was life that paved the way for her music, opening doors in the most unexpected of places - and creating a small fervor that would lead to an enamored following in the Philadelphia area."
Nalia Francis - Sound Stage
"With melodies and lyrics that are finely crafted, Lizanne Knott forges a strong connection with her listeners. Her voice, stage presence and performance style make even those who don''t enjoy live music gravitate toward her. No diamond in the rough....she''s shining through with a lot of natural bling."
Listening Post Productions and WVUD-FM
“Vocals infused with infinite warmth, Lizanne creates the kind of songs that bring an unexpected smile --- one that surprises even your own reflection, leaving your day a little more inspired.”
Lauren Jonik - Sound Effects
“ Lizanne''s voice is sweet and emotional- you feel every word she sings. Her vocals have an almost hypnotic quality, and her writing is exquisite.”
