The band is to slotted to take the stage at 7:30 and will play until 9:30. Liz Frazier, front-woman of the Daisies graced us with an interview session and here is what she had to say about all things Ox-Eyed Daisies.
TRM: What got you into music?
LF: I grew up listening to my dad play banjo, guitar, and bass. I always loved sitting in on his band practices and just listening. My papaw founded and Preached at a Baptist Church in Paint Lick, Kentucky. I went every Sunday and Wednesday for 17 years…. The only time I didn’t dread going to church was when this gospel bluegrass band would come around and play about 2 times a year. Gospel Bluegrass is definitely the foundation of my relationship with music. So in my early 20’s I started a bluegrass band called Tripped Up String Band and have evolved from there.
TRM: How would you describe the music that you typically create?
LF: I’m always trying to come up with a song that sounds different than the last. That being said, I have a tendency to gather water from a familiar well. A mixture of Americana, Bluegrass, Funk, Blues, & Rock. My goal is to pull from each and make it my own sound. It’s hard to do but, I won’t stop trying.
TRM: Who would you most like to collaborate with?
LF: I think it’d be really cool to collaborate with Brother Smith. They’re local and so damn good. I listen to all of their albums quite a lot. I’d love to make some music with those cats.
TRM: If you could open a show for any artist, who would it be?
LF: Damn, that’s a hard question. If we could get the Talking Heads back together for a reunion tour, they’d be my choice – but a current band, I’d probably say Lake Street Dive.
TRM: Now for the the fun stuff. What is the most useless talent you have?
LF: I can burp at will!
