The Lied To’s, made up of musicians Doug Kwartler and Susan Levine, previously released their 2015 self-titled debut and 2018’s The Lesser of Two Evils, which chronicled the losing and rebuilding of relationships in the wake of divorce.

The Worst Kind of New is the next step in the life cycle Kwartler and Levine both lost parents during the making of the record, which profoundly impacted their perspective.

The characters in these songs are no longer lamenting about being lied to or hurt by others, but instead are looking at the lies they tell themselves and belief systems that may no longer serve them or hold true.

Levine and Kwartler were award-winning solo singer-songwriters when they first met at a folk festival in 2009.

After reconnecting at an open mic in 2013, Levine began recording in Kwartler’s recording studio.

The two started sharing gigs and discovered that they were a match both musically and personally.

Three albums and nine years later, the pair, who took their name from The Everly Brothers’ “When Will I Be Loved,” continues to share music and life.

Between them, they have been finalists at the Kerrville Folk Festival, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, and the International Songwriting Competition, among others.

Kwartler is a respected music producer who owns and runs Hollow Body Recording Studios in Chelmsford, MA.

His songs have been featured on network tv shows including CSI, All My Children, The Young and the Restless and Dark Blue.

Opening act Kenny Selcer is equally at home on solo acoustic guitar as he is with a band.

He has performed everywhere as a solo singer/songwriter honing his songs and solo performing on the vital New England acoustic scene.

He has also led bands from duos to 6 pieces led by his mesmerizing guitar & intimate vocals.

Whatever the musical situation, he paints sparkling vignettes and visions exploring life’s complexities and wonders.

His latest CD is I Simplify.
