While you might know Eliza Doyle from the Midnight Roses, the Hard Ramblers, or the Cracker Cats, this banjo-playing songstress is now taking a break from bands to record her first ever solo album! In this week’s Empty Room, Eliza performs her song “Underground”, with bandmate Paula McGuigan on stand up bass. Paula and Liza Holder (Stackwall Studios) are working with Doyle on the upcoming album – in fact, Eliza is in the studio recording all this week. No need to wait – you can discover Eliza as a solo artist by watching her Empty Room performance! To check out Eliza with the Midnight Roses go to themidnightroses.com, and keep an eye out for more solo music. (Eliza will also be doing a kids workshop (ages 5-8) at the Northern Lights Bluegrass Festival in August.)
