Liz Cooper makes her solo debut with her new single “Slice of Life” from her anticipated album Hot Sass. This being her first album separate from The Stampede, Cooper, alongside Ryan Usher, Joe Bisirri, and Michael Libramento, recorded at Little Jamaica Recordings in Burlington, Vermont. “Slice of Life” is a raw and untamed peak into the 12-track LP, and is Stephanie’s DJ Pick of the Week!
Cooper takes her music in a new direction towards psychedelic groove, separating it from her Americana roots. Resembling elements from Sheryl Crow, David Bowie, and Caroline Rose, “Slice of Life” struts around with a subtle, yet powerful chorus, followed with detailed, visual verses. “It’s me learning about what kind of woman I am and it’s not pretty all the time…I’m still processing these songs. Still reflecting. And I think that’s the thing. Hot Sass is just a stamp in time of what was happening in my life. I just want to continue making art that displays myself, the moments, and the people around me,” says Cooper.
No stranger to performing live for Lightning 100, whether in the studio or at Live on the Green back in 2019, we are excited to see Liz Cooper continue to take the stage. Hot Sass is set to release on September 3, 2021. Watch Cooper’s video for “Slice of Life,” directed by Daniel Yocum, below!
