Liz Springer - Vocals, Cat Herder
Before she found the blues and founded The Built 4 Comfort Band, Liz grew up singing along to the great women of rock. Over late night drinks at local watering holes thinking out loud with friends, she sketched out her idea of what a fun, rock project would be like. Sweet Medicine Band is the result. ROCK & ROLL FOR YOUR SOUL! Music is what soothes Liz's soul, and The Sweet Medicine Band was designed to deliver songs (that sweet medicine) that will take you back in time, allow you to reminisce for a while, and forget your troubles for the night.
