Esther Friedman CD Release w/Special Guests, The Lied To's

Esther Friedman CD Release w/Special Guests, The Lied To's
Esther Friedman

Back in 1990, Esther Friedman moved to Boston for Lesley College’s Master’s program in Expressive Arts Therapy, where she found inspiration in the buskers who braved street corners and t-stops – not to mention the area’s rich history in folk music. She started writing songs and hitting open mics. In 1998, a compilation called Respond included her song Moon Over The Water – the record, a fundraiser for a local shelter for victims of domestic violence, and her song, received accolades from Billboard Magazine, and the project raised over $100,000. Between working and returning to school for a Graduate levels Certificate in Communications and Publishing, she started performing gigs. In 2000 she released her first solo project, Eve’s Lament. Cult Confessions, produced by Doug Kwartler of The Lied To’s, is her second CD and one prong of a multimedia project about a ridiculous misadventure with a group that called itself “school”. Eventually this soundtrack will become a musical and PSA …stay tuned! Consider this show a sneak peek.

The Lied To's

The Lied To's are Susan Levine and Doug Kwartler, two Massachusetts-based singer-songwriters who joined musical forces in 2014. Taking their name from the Everly Brothers song, "When Will I Be Loved," The Lied To's put the challenges of relationships squarely under their musical microscope with a formidable blend of folk, Americana and country-tinged music. Their self-titled debut cd, released in 2015, rose to the top of the roots rock charts and landed in the top 100 of the No Depression readers' poll. Their new cd, The Lesser of Two Evils, was just released in May 2018, and is already garnering praise for its gritty honesty and the duo's trademark harmonies.
