Heart and Mind

By: Laurie Gallardo

Lizzie Lehman, songwriter and vocalist of Carry Illinois, treasures the wisdom that tells us life itself is a work in progress. It’s been a touchstone for Lehman throughout her own journey in self-care.  And Work In Progress happens to be the title of Carry Illinois’ most recent EP, a soul-baring work confronting personal truths, exposing one’s insecurities, and deep introspection.

The EP is the follow-up to their 2017 release, Garage Sale, written and recorded as the band did some much-needed healing following the untimely loss of friend and original bassist, John Winsor. It was a struggle paired with oftentimes unbearable emotional aftermath, but Lehman ultimately felt empowered by the urge to move forward.

Carry Illinois is on a fantastic line-up for a show tonight at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, on the inside stage with Bleached Roses and Tyler Jordan & The Negative Space. Doors open at 8 p.m. Recommended.
