Liar

Album: Edens Edge (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This song was penned by the Nashville songwriter Laura Veltz, who is a good friend of the Edens Edge trio and contributed towards four tracks on their debut album. Lead vocalist Hannah Blaylock said regarding this cut: "A good song takes you on a journey. The story depicts such sharp imagery that when I heard it I felt like I had lived the story myself. There are those precious times when a song stops you in your tracks and moves you in a way that you can't explain."

    "Songs like this are the ones that remind us all of the power of music," she continued. "This song is exactly that for me. Our beloved Laura Veltz showed me this song that she wrote and I was floored. She kept it for us for over a year and a half so we could put it on our record. We cannot show her enough love and thankfulness for giving us such a priceless gift and letting us partake in such a breathtaking piece of art."
