Liza Anne Oda­chowski will per­form her gritty pop from her new al­bum “Fine But Dy­ing” when she opens for Cold War Kids at The Signal tonight, May 24, at 8:30 p.m.

“Grow­ing up, peo­ple would al­ways say I was ‘ too happy to be de­pressed,’ or ‘ too so­cial to have anx­i­ety,’” says the singer, bet­ter known these days by stage name Liza Anne.

“In their eyes, be­cause I was one thing, I couldn’t also be some­thing else. I think we all ex­ist in du­al­ity, though. I can be ev­ery­thing and noth­ing all at once.”

Liza Anne grew up in the com­mu­nity of St. Si­mons Is­land, Ge­or­gia. She dis­cov­ered s ong­writ­ing one sum­mer at sleep- away camp, when a gui­tar class helped her re­al­ize t hat t he note­books she’d been fill­ing with poetry and prose could be set to melodies. Raised in a deeply re­li­gious house­hold, her pub­lic per­for­mances came on Sun­days when s he s erved as a l ocal wor­ship leader.

She re­leased a video for the sin­gle “Small Talks” in March ahead of per­for­mances at SXSW.
