Richards features on Tim Rogers' album, “Rogers Sings Rogerstein”
“Album opener, ‘All or Nothing’ is a duet with Lizanne Richards who we can confirm is a real woman. It’s a delicate, almost mournful waltz with Rogers whispering, ‘just lie on my chest tonight, you’ll hear the dying of light’. A worthy beginning.” – One Chord To Another
Tim Rogers: “I gave it to Lizanne [Richards], who sung on the record, and said, “See what you can find in it.” She did a day in the studio with Shane when I was on tour. It’s perfect because it’s a tale of a male-female romantic relationship”. – Mess and Noise
Listen to track ‘All or Nothing’, where Lizanne guest vocals.
