"There's a lot going on in her sound. I think she has enormous potentional.." -Stephen Thompson
NPR Music has premiered “Body of Mine” on NPR Music, featuring the track on All Songs Considered episode. "A Memphian of Dominican descent who grew up singing in Spanish in the church, Brasher synthesizes the sounds of ‘60s garage, girl group sounds, dirty blues, holy roller church music, and Bob Dylan into something completely her own." -Nick Loss-Eaton
NPR Music ads Liz to the list of 100 artists to watch at SXSW this year.
"Brasher’s record finds the North Carolina native mixing her Dominican roots and gospel rearing into an inspired and beguiling vision of American soul music."
"Brasher's strain of soul is one that's flush with lyrical nods to Biblical images, Rubber Soul harmonies and a gruff reverence to its southern roots."
"She has a voice that’ll stop you in your tracks... a deep lounge/soul vibe, reminiscent of Amy Winehouse. "
"Though she can be labeled as a “soul” or “folk” artist, she is both and neither simultaneously. Her sound defies genre labels and exists as a fusion of many styles. This makes it irresistible."
