Singer-songwriter Lizzy McAlpine premieres live video for “I Knew” today

Debuts Crowdfunding Vinyl Campaign For New Album Via Bandcamp, Give Me a Minute Out Now


Emerging singer-songwriter Lizzy McAlpine‘s live video for her song “I knew” premieres today; watch/share it here: The track appears on McAlpine’s debut album Give Me A Minute, which is out now—American Songwriter recently featured McAlpine on an “Acts You Need To Know” profile while Indie Shuffle adds, “Lizzy McAlpine has a rosy voice, similar to the whisper-like voices of Dodie and Birdy. And on top of her main vocals, the misty backup ones are insanely soothing. While cranking the volume up slightly louder, they ease you into the song, adding a key layer. They also match the song’s theme of someone fading away.” That Music Mag furthered, “Lizzy McAlpine, is one to be excited about.” Listen to/share the record here:

On Tuesday, McAlpine unveiled a crowdfunded vinyl campaign via Bandcamp for the release of Give Me A Minute. The campaign, which runs for 30 days, hit its Bandcamp target in under an hour marking a total of 350 vinyl records sold in one day. Additional information on the project can be found here:

Written in the fall of 2019 while she was studying in Spain, Give Me A Minute is a folk-pop chronicle as one romantic relationship ended and another began, all while McAlpine far away from family, friends and her peers at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she majors in songwriting. “It was a very lonely time, so I wrote a lot of songs… That tends to happen whenever I go through a large-scale change, whether it’s in my environment or in my personal life,” says McAlpine.


After spending a year on Give Me A Minute, which she co-produced with fellow Berklee classmate Philip Etherington, McAlpine already has the early stages of a follow-up project in mind. “This album one is like a snapshot of where I was at that time,” she says. “The next project could be completely different. Honestly, it depends on where I’m at and what I’m going through.”

McAlpine is from outside Philadelphia and has been drawn to music since she was big enough to thump on her grandparents’ piano as a kid. Soon her freeform experiments took on greater structure where she began to share original songs and covers on Soundcloud and YouTube.
