The Lied To’s
The Lied To’s are Susan Levine and Doug Kwartler, two Massachusetts-based singer-songwriters who joined musical forces in 2014. The duo, in part, took their name from the revered Everly Brothers song, “When Will I Be Loved.”
Their self-titled debut cd, released in 2015, rose to the top of the roots rock charts and landed in the top 100 of the prestigious No Depression readers’ poll. Their second cd, The Lesser of Two Evils, released in May 2018, received universal praise for its gritty instrumentation, impeccable harmonies and honest songwriting. Tom Haugen of The Daily Vault calls it, “…nothing short of brilliant.” And Red Line Roots writes, “If you dig the mix of gritty honesty and interwoven gorgeous harmonies of Shovels and Rope, then you are going to love The Lied To’s.”
The Lied To’s have played sold-out concerts at Club Passim in Cambridge, MA, and The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN, and have spent much of the last year playing shows in support of their new album.
