In this episode, Dr. Leah and Taraleigh talk with musician and singer/songwriter Liz Bills about her evocative ways of delivering healing and transformation through music and collaborative performance. Liz shares her own journey with mental health, chronic pain, and sobriety, and how her music has evolved to facilitate more healing experiences along the way. Liz describes how she sees herself as a “nervous system tuner” as a musician and how she focuses on creating co-regulation through live music. In the “Did you Know” Dr. Leah explains what nervous system regulation means and how it can be done through co-regulation with another person or through self-regulation on one’s own. Taraleigh gives listeners a couple of techniques to use for self-regulation in the “Daily Jam.”
Liz Bills is known for her entrancing high energy performances and emotionally charged power vocals, passionate and honest in her songwriting and stage presence; Liz is unapologetically brave yet incredibly vulnerable and real. Taking you on a wild ride that is intoxicatingly sweet and dangerously ferocious.
Liz’s highlights include the 2020 and 2021 Boston Music Award’s ‘Singer/songwriter of The Year’ nomination, winning ‘Pop Act of The Year’ in 2021, ‘Roots Act of The Year’ in 2019 and ‘Rock Act of the Year’ in 2018 for the New England Music Awards, opening for Bon Jovi at Mohegan Sun in 2017, runner-up in the 2016 Aloft Rising Star with Daughtry, and a semi-finals appearance in the WZLX’s 2016 Rock Rumble. Liz was a top 30 female finisher in the 2013 American Idol competition, and has been compared to singers such as Grace Potter, Janis Joplin, Florence and the Machine and Susan Tedeschi. https://www.lizbills.com/
