No Depression calls Eliza Gilkyson "an exquisite weaver of story songs that strike at the heart of personal experience." Courageous, sometimes political, and always powerful, the songs of Eliza Gilkyson are edgy, passionate creations that ought to appeal to any Lucinda Williams fan in a big way (and she was around before Lucinda was). Eliza has music in the blood; her father, Hollywood songwriter Terry Gilkyson, composed "Bare Necessities" and "Greenfields," among other standards, and one or two of them often show up in her concerts, engagingly introduced. Eliza comes to Michigan with a new release, "2020," promising "a collection of politically charged anthems designed to motivate, reflect, and inspire action during what may be the most vital American election of our lifetime."
