Edmonton musician Billie Zizi brings her trio to Lethbridge in support of her brand new second CD “Moon of Honey” on Saturday.
Zizi, the daughter of well known Edmonton fiddle player Cam Neufeld, was a hit at the South Country Fair in July.
“ I’ve never played Lethbridge before, but I played the Fair. It was beautiful. It was really nice and relaxing,” she said.
Neufeld won’t be joining her on stage for the Lethbridge show.
“Dad’s staying at home this time because we have family coming from out of town,” Zizi said, adding she will be accompanied by drummer Tom Bennett and bassist Josh McCann.
She is pleased with the new soul and rock and roll direction the new CD has taken her.
“I’ve been working on it for about a year-and-a-half including writing and recording it with Harry Gregg. I’ve definitely been playing the songs at least a year before I recorded them. It let me see them take shape,” she continued.
“I wanted to play more guitar on this CD and have a more guitar driven sound on this CD,” she said.
She has been inspired a lot by her dad.
