With the passing of the Dolores O’Riordan earlier this year, Nashville raised songwriter Liza Anne (aka, Liza Anne Odachowski) is paying tribute one of her most beloved artists with her version of the Cranberries’ “Dreams”. “Some of my most visceral memories from childhood happened with my aunt,” says Liza Anne. “I'm named after her, so I think I've naturally gravitated towards discovering things about myself through her - she's always felt more like a sister than an aunt. When I was a kid, we would drive around my hometown listening to records - it was in that passenger seat, with that woman, with my name that I first heard Dreams. I'm not sure how old I was but the way it hit me felt like a beginning. I don't usually like to cover songs - there's a holiness in the way a song is originally experienced that feels sacrilegious to tread upon - but when Dolores passed this last year, I felt like I needed a moment of meditation for the portal that she gave me. I never got to see her perform this song but its existence gave me a hint towards what I wanted to do with my voice and my mind and my body and the time that I stay alive.”
“Dreams” will be included on the Dreams EP, out September 14 on Arts & Crafts, along with remixes of “Turn For The Worse” and “Kid Gloves”, two tracks from her third solo album, Fine But Dying.
Out now on Arts & Crafts, Fine But Dying explores issues that women confront daily, as well as mental health and anxiety issues. A deeply introspective record, “I’m Tired, You’re Lonely” marks Liza Anne as strikingly confessional songwriter, sound tracked to music that is suggestive of Courtney Barnett and First Aid Kit.
