SAN FRANCISCO - March 13, 2018 - PRLog -- San Francisco based singer-songwriter Liz Kennedy finds fresh ways to define rootsy – including bringing in legendary bluesman Taj Mahal who contributes his inimitable vocals and banjo to the buoyant tune "Everyone Knows How It Goes."

The single from the 12 track collection "Hike Up Your Socks" also features producer Joel Jaffe (Maria Muldaur) on guitar and lap steel along with several other veteran bay area musicians including keyboardist Eamonn Flynn (The Commitments), drummer Billy Johnson (Santana) , bassist Marc Levine (Barry Manilow), accordionist Pete Contino (Dick Contino), fiddler Suzy Thompson (Dave Alvin), and background vocalists Omega Rae (Sammy Hagar) and Lorin Rowan (The Rowan Brothers). The music video which also features Kennedy with recent Grammy winner Taj Mahal (Taj Mo with Keb Mo) was directed by Eric Peltier.

"Everyone Knows How It Goes" introduces the sound of the album.  Kennedy wrote the tune after heading off with a pack of her old friends to Desert Trip, the 2016 classic rock festival in Indio, CA some affectionately dubbed "Oldchella". "This song is a tribute to Neil Young and also to Taj Mahal, who joined me in recording it," Kennedy says.  "It is a tribute to the fine music that defined us and still does. We would all just be lumps of skin and hair in a corner somewhere without that music holding us together, giving us shape and form. We worshipped them all, and we learned their songs in cramped rooms 'with candles and wine.' "

"Everyone Knows How It Goes" is looking for adds at Triple A and Americana radio stations beginning March 12th by Powderfinger Promotions.  The video will debut March 26th promoted by Hip Video Promotions.
