She co-wrote each of the six songs on the record.
Her EP debuted at No. 42 on the iTunes Country Album charts in less than twenty-four hours, as well as No. 10 on the Billboard Heatseekers Album charts.
It opens with her catchy single “Everything Tonight,” which is a strong track that immediately grabs the listener’s attention and sustains it throughout the duration of the album.
It is followed by the optimistic “Go Girl” and the upbeat “Fighting Over Me,” the latter of which is one of the highlight tracks on the EP. Her vocals on this tune are reminiscent to those of Kimberly Perry from The Band Perry as well as Taylor Swift. It is certainly worthy of the repeat button on one’s mp3 or CD player.
She changes the pace of the album with her powerhouse ballad “Boston,” which has a haunting feel to it.
Equally fun is “Boys in Every Zip Code” and it closes with another soaring ballad “Forgive and Forget.”
The Verdict
Elizabeth Lyons’ eponymous EP is an exceptional release by an incredible new artist. Her vocals are infectious and her songwriting is refreshing. The EP garners 4 out of 5 stars.
Within a year or sooner, every country music fan will be “fighting over” a ticket to see Elizabeth Lyons live in concert.
Fans that enjoy the music of such songstresses as Taylor Swift, Kimberly Perry and Kellie Pickler are certain to find Elizabeth Lyons to be a real treat.
