"Storybook is the debut EP by Chloe Lou and the Liddells, who have been playing all over town in recent months. Liddell is established in the local roots scene, singing in bands that include the Good Mojo Band and occasionally taking the mic at Farmers gigs. The band was put together in 2018 by her and Chris Davies, whose credentials with local heroes the Penetrators are impeccable, and the two have been writing originals together that jump genres while giving Liddell and her noteworthy pipes some quirky and soulful pop-rock subject matter.
The band on the five tunes includes Liddell’s vox, Davies on guitar, Ron Silva on bass, David Fleminger’s keyboards, Peter Miesner on guitar, and Richard “T-Bone” Larson on drums. They provide plenty of bottom and groove for the interesting mix of music. Throughout, there is an old school radio rock vibe beneath the surface, helped by Larson’s prominent drums, simple staccato surf-inspired guitar lines, and—in all the right places—layers of big Hammond-sounding organ. While the star of the set is clearly Liddell, Davies and the others give her great support." -Frank Kocher, San Diego Troubadour, August 2019
