Mass MoCA will celebrate widely acclaimed and genre-defying artist Lizzie No and the release of her new album, Halfsies.

With two eclectic albums which drew praise from the likes of Billboard and Rolling Stone — Lizzie No has travelled and performed widely, with appearances at AmericanaFest, the Newport Folk Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and SXSW, and tours with Iron and Wine, Son Little and Adia Victoria.

To categorize artists might make it easier to organize record stores and playlists, Mass MoCA says but there’s no one term that could define any artist, least of all one like Lizzie No.

“Some albums are stories, some are films. This album is a video game,” No says of Halfsie, which traces the journey of Miss Freedomland (a character that represents No herself and her audience) from a place of both internal and external exile to liberation.

Through her music, No is searching for freedom — from the constraints of categorization and also from the depths of her own personal despair and from an increasingly violent and nightmarish American cultural and political landscape.

The album, No says, is meant to be immersive — these songs are to be inhabited, not just by the singer but by those who receive them. Experience her stirring, singular style live in B10 this season.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
