Bad Vacation is a collection of art rock anthems, new wave jams, and power pop earworms set to establish Liza as a breakthrough independent artist and a bold young voice in mental health self-awareness.
The album follows her 2018 critically praised album Fine But Dying, which saw Liza open sold out runs with Kacey Musgraves and Ray LaMontagne, make her national television debut on CONAN, and win praise from Hayley Williams, who asked Liza to join Paramore on their inaugural Art + Friends festival. Liza recently launched #EmotionalHealth2020 rallies – a live mental health-focused interview series airing weekly on Liza’s Instagram each Tuesday at 6 PM CT, featuring Liza with friends and collaborators including Half Waif, Caroline Rose, Courtney Marie Andrews and more on deck for future conversations.
Bad Vacation is a self-aware account of the emotionally difficult years that followed Fine But Dying’s success. The album reflects on her time on tour and fresh out of an exhausting relationship, which took a considerable toll on both her physical and mental health, Liza found herself often at her lowest. She learned she was behaving in a way she learned to be destructive. Liza said, “I was a wreck. I left the relationship and was desperate to find emotional safety in someone else. It felt better to have someone outside of me show me love than sit with myself long enough to learn how to show myself love. I was on a bender for emotional safety, not knowing that I could be my own healing space.”
