American guitarist & composer Liz Hogg has been described as “writing independent music that doesn’t reflect the trends,” “uniquely her own,” (I Heart Noise) and “playing with a more distinctive and original approach that includes quickly-strummed chords, chiming arpeggios, and rapid-fire picking” (Geoff Cabin). Her playing has been further characterized as “strong, precise, and powerful” (Bushwick Music Daily), “radiating in its own light” (New Noise Magazine) and “[displaying a] confrontational spectrum of emotions” (Music & Riots).
As a classical guitarist & performer of her own mostly-electric guitar music, Hogg has toured twelve countries playing numerous festivals and concert halls. She has won awards including the Mannes School of Music Dean’s Award as well the Maurice Kagan Memorial Scholarship Award for Excellence in an Orchestral Instrument, and was a Fulbright-García Robles Scholarship semi-finalist plus a Lanciano International Guitar Seminar scholar.
Since 2014, Hogg’s performance schedule has taken her across Europe, Asia and North America including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Brookfield Place in her hometown of New York City, as well as Portugal’s Casa da Música and Mexico’s Tlaqná Concert Hall. In 2018, Hogg released her first S/T solo album via Mouca, in which she recorded & performed all the instruments, and the artwork/engineering. Her debut classical guitar album is due for a Dec. 2019 release via Albany Records.
