It Takes A Lot Not To End Up Dead

Event Description

Driving down the highway gives you a lot of time to think. The reflection in the rearview mirror isn’t always as picturesque as you’d hoped. Sometimes, looking back, you see roads that you might have taken, places where you’ve broken down and times when you lost your way.

It Takes a Lot Not to End Up Dead offers up a collection of original songs and stories that weave through a conversation with Lizzie’s younger self. What could I have done differently? Where did I go wrong? If only I knew then what I know now. So hop in and hitch a ride on this road to redemption as Lizzie learns that you can either drive down a highway of regret, or try to find a brand new view.

With a combination of lyrical honesty and charming melodies, Lizzie Flynn writes songs that blend a little satirical storytelling with a lot of joyful emotion.

It Takes a Lot Not to End Up Dead offers up a collection of songs and stories that weave between sweetly satirical toe-tapping tunes to tender ballads of lessons learnt and love lost.

“Flynn’s vocals are spellbinding making the listener follow it as it rises and falls in its delicate emotional range.”
