LISTEN TO “WHERE CAN I GO (FEAT. PROPAGANDA)”: HERE

Liz Vice has released a soulful remix of her song “Where Can I Go” featuring rapper Propaganda. The original, from her newest album Save Me, was inspired by a dream Vice had about flying free and moving to New York City. Propaganda is an LA native, a poet, political activist, husband, father, academic, and emcee. With the city flowing through his veins and armed with a bold message, he has assembled a body of work that challenges his listeners with every verse and reaches across the spectrum of pop culture. This made him the perfect choice to add to Vice’s stunning body of work. “Liz is one of the most prolific and angelic singer-songwriters I know,” says Propaganda. “She knows what she wants and how she wants it. I just imagined what my heart would want her to know and believe about herself and wrote my verse from that perspective. It was a goal of mine to work with her so I couldn’t have been more honored to do it.” Propaganda and Liz are headed out together on their co-headlining “Midwest Grooves” tour starting next month.

“Chance the Rapper and Kanye West may use gospel elements to give their music a reverent lilt, but the genre hasn’t had many crossover evangelists since Kirk Franklin’s hip-hop bombast brought it to the pop charts in the 1990s. Enter Ms. Vice, whose version of gospel is more rootsy than radio. She has a rich voice that fits easily into her groovy yet understated arrangements; the result recalls the gentle revival of artists like Leon Bridges.” – The New York Times

On tour, Vice will be performing songs from her sophomore album, Save Me, that came out this summer. The album was featured as part of NPR’s First Listen Program and received praise from No Depression, The Bluegrass Situation, American Songwriter, The 405 and more. The dynamic material was taken from different periods of Vice’s life and her struggle to continuously answer her call to music. The opening track “Drift Away” was described by NPR as having “a bit of the prophetic exhortation of a Civil Rights-era spiritual. The way she elevates an internal struggle to life-or-death heights in the title track straddles contemporary worship and modern rock language.” “Brick By Brick,” a powerful track featuring the chanting of travel ban protesters at the Portland airport, proves a forceful reminder that no one is alone in this world.

“a satisfying sound that pulls from Motown roots and offers a hopeful message.”  NPR

All the praise came as a surprise to Vice who never intentionally set out to pursue music. Vice was diagnosed with a debilitating illness as a teen that put her on hemodialysis for three years.  A kidney transplant saved her life and led to a period of deep healing and perspective. Vice felt like this was her second chance at life and headed to film school to pursue a career in production. While at school she found and started attending a church whose community was made up of young people and began to sing background vocals with the worship team. It was here that she started to feel that nudge, the call to singing that would not leave her alone. Despite having intense stage fright she was persuaded to sing a solo during a Sunday evening service. That one performance pushed Vice to answer the call to use her voice and catapulted her into a life of an artist and performer.
