at the age of 21, he began learning the guitar in the middle of a stickysweet july night and nothing has been the same since. liam also plays the ukulele and uses found objects for occasional percussion. he has toured extensively with his former band, a is for &, with the tranny roadshow*, and has toured as a solo artist with the trans-genre transfusions II national tour. liam is the author of a chapbook of poems, rattling bones (backpocket press; portland, OR: 2009). he self-released his first LP, hotel sex, in 2009.
music, for liam, has always been about the therapeutic and divine connection he experiences through jammin’. as he explains it: “music is something i connect best with when i’m alone in my house, in my pajamas, on the couch.” liam’s music combines folk, americana, country, a little bit of the blues, some jazz, with definite pop rock overtones (or so he fancies). musicians like schuyler fisk, kina grannis, darius rucker, the mallett brothers band, old crow medicine show, cee-lo green, and jim croce heavily influence liam’s work. liam’s gender and his queerness are focal points in his work — his music often bends, like his gender, from good old-fashioned love songs to queered-up spiritual anthems of intersectional social justice. give him a listen – you won’t be sorry.
