Preview: Liz Vice at The Secret Society in Portland on April 4

I was blown away when I first heard Liz Vice a few weeks ago - and then I learned that that huge voice belonged to someone in my backyard! The Portland-based singer says she grew up singing and dancing along to 'The Lion King' soundtrack, but found her true calling when she put together her love for singing with her love for God. Her debut album's title, 'There's A Light', makes me think of the Smiths - but that's probably not who she's talking about. "Singing in church, singing with local rock stars", makes for a great combination and Liz Vice will do just that when she makes a joyful noise with a long lineup of other local bands this Friday night at The Secret Society.
