Lizzy Diane is 2015 Tomme Suab Artist of the Year
"One of the characteristics of so many artists I admire is malleability. Specifically, I love witnessing or listening to musicians evolve. They allow themselves to be influenced, pushed, challenged… in other words, they embrace growth personally and musically. It has been my honor to see this dynamic in play with the 2015 Tomme Suab Artist of the Year, Lizzy Diane.
If you listen to Lizzy Diane’s first two records, Encompass Roseand Otherkin, you can certainly hear the evolution between those two albums. However, the evolution has continued since Otherkinwas released in late 2014. She continues to experiment vocally and musically. She continues to work through and process life, art, and their intermingling. And these dynamics produce compelling and poignant songs and performances.
Along with all of this creative development, Lizzy’s commitment to performing live is evident. From headlining WHYS’s Girrrls with Guitars event in October to playing multiple shows in various venues around Eau Claire, she stayed busy in 2015. And, personally, I’m glad, because Lizzy Diane’s music should be heard.
While I wholeheartedly believe the best is yet to come for this young performer, I am pleased to name Lizzy Diane the initial recipient of the Tomme Suab Artist of the Year title."

"ISFP" No. 1 on NBT Music Radio's 180 Best Singles of 2015!
Otherkin No. 4 on NBT Music Radio's 180 Best Albums of 2015!
"This Year we had music from Countries all across the globe, from different Cultures and Musical Tribes. From Nashville Country to Electro IndieBubbleGum , From EuroHardcore to African Ambient. As the world seemed to edge into a place where Conservative ideals ruled, from Entertainment, through Business via Politics and into our daily lives, these artists shook that system right up by creating honest and amazing collections we could cling to through all the bad times.
As the mainstream continued to fumble and foul, pushing out an ever decreasing selection of ever irrelevant acts, the Independent music movement /virus grew ever stronger, and we were able to play it all!
Thanks to ALL the bands that sent us music this year, you made it damn difficult to select JUST 180 songs and 180 albums; we could have, in all honesty made the list twice as long with no drop in quality.NBT isn’t the most humble of creatures as you probably know but we have good reason to be proud of our broadcast this year and that is due to the amazing musicians and the listeners who listen with curious minds and keep us all going.Well done!"

Lizzy Diane: ISFP (from the Album ‘’OtherKin’’)
"An internal conversation, recollections half painted with gentle fondness and a somewhat hardier wryness, this is a mistake, but, this is also the only possible escape. The writer here captures friendship and its potential failings in just a line or two just as the singer communicates need, nostalgia and longing, with sighs, kind insults and cutting compliments. The Song makes you want to do your own travelling, makes you think about picking up the phone and reconnecting, possibly cocooned in that private shorthand language of understanding. The Song is the dream itself, where communication defeats regret, just for a little bit and the beauty… lingers. Music should always be this captivating."
The Unassuming Authenticity of Lizzy Diane

Local Artist Of The Day:
"This melancholic enchantress from Eau Claire just released her debut album late last year and it is amazing. I seriously urge everyone to check it out. It will tickle your fancy whether you are into metal, folk, or anywhere in between. She brings elements of folk and alternative and adds her unique vocal style to the mix. One listen and you will be sucked in. Seriously, this album is worth a listen or a hundred."

New Album from Lizzy Diane
"I find the ethereal haunting vibe of Otherkin to be a thoroughly humanizing experience. Upon first listen to “Lo and Behold,” the first track on the album, I was immediately taken in, swept away by the instrumentation, emotion, and dreamy feel of the song. From the get-go, Lizzy Diane invites listeners to engage with their emotions, intellect, and spirit. Again, she invites us to engage with those things that are integral to what it means to be human."
