Analog Heart specialize in a guitar-driven blend of roots rock, R&B, alt-country, and blues that has endeared them to audiences all across New England, including Lowell, where they have performed at the first Town & City Festival, and as part of The Lowell Spin’s own Rock N’ Lowell Fest series. Their distinct sound wouldn’t be possible without the vocal stylings of frontwoman Liz Bills, a powerhouse singer (And top 30 finisher on American Idol!) whose emotionally charged, passionate style has been compared to that of Janis Joplin, and has led Analog Heart to critical acclaim. This acclaim has only doubled with the arrival of her second project, Liz Bills & The Change. Liz Bills has shared the stage with the likes of Gary Hoey, Saving Abel, and others, but can she answer…
