This album features much loved music Australian music festival favourite double-bass player Liz Frencham, now settled in country Victoria. She studied jazz bass at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and went on to hone her considerable talents with festival favourites Jigzag, Fred Smith, Gregory Page, Miriam Leiberman, Mic Conway, Chris While and Julie Matthews, Wouter Kellerman, Dev'lish Mary, Alanna and Alicia, and Jimmy the Fish. 

You & Me Vol.1 is a an eclectic collection of live duets that capture beautiful moments of connection between two players in one room exploring each other through a spontaneous connection to a song. The narratives are wide ranging in genre and subject matter; from jazz to folk, from desolation to utter joy. The common thread is Liz Frencham's warm, honest vocal delivery and even warmer double bass tone. 


“From the opening notes of Liz Frencham’s CD you & me Vol. 1 you know you are in for a rare treat. At times the music floats as gently as a breeze from a moth’s wings at others Liz soars like a butterfly on steroids – but always with great sensitivity and beauty. All of which is made more extraordinary by the fact that she is playing the double bass. Such an instrument asks a lot of a musician. It is not simply plucked, bowed and stroked by Frencham. Her double bass is an extension of her body and indeed to watch her play is to watch an erotic performance where musician and instrument are as one... 
Playing, composing and singing; this girl has it all. The only note of caution – put the bottle of wine beside you because once Liz Frencham has you, she doesn’t let go – not for a minute.” Sandy McCutcheon (Writer & ABC radio personality)
