Hard Times In Babylon


Eliza Gilkyson writes songs for the soul.

— Pulse

Hard Times in Babylon is Eliza Gilkyson's Red House debut! The collection of songs, which she describes as "a diary of a season of love and loss," is stripped down and presented with a hard-earned confidence. Opening with "Beauty Way," a semi-autobiographical homage to the plight of being a guitar slinger by trade, which as she says "is a little about me, a little about my brother (guitarist Tony Gilkyson of 'X' and 'Lone Justice' notoriety) and a whole lot about most guitar players trying to keep the balance between making a living and keeping their creative fires burning." The title track, "Hard Times in Babylon," (written after the suicide of a close friend) sets the tone for the rest of the recording.
