"...On an unseasonably warm January afternoon, Elizabeth McQueen lounges on the curved tangerine sofa in her East Austin home, glasses whimsically askew atop her sculpted nose. With a wave of the hand, she revisits the epiphany that brought her to Austin from Maryland in 2001...."
"...Elizabeth McQueen is a trooper. After two weeks on the road and dearly in need of sleep, the Asleep at the Wheel vocalist spent some time on the phone with me last night just catching up...."
"...Elizabeth McQueen & the FirebrandsThe Fresh Up Club (Gravitron)..."
"...Elizabeth McQueen & the Firebrands Can a band that plays tunes from the songbooks of Elvis Costello, George Jones, Banana Blender Surprise, and Robbie Fulks call themselves country? Singer-songwriter Elizabeth McQueen thinks so. Since she's also one of them folks that moved to Austin without a job and without really knowing anybody, being bold may simply be second nature to her...."
"...Elizabeth McQueen & the Firebrands..."
"...Legendary local venues close regularly, but Hot Club of Cowtown fiddler Elana James and former Timbuk 3 breakout Barbara K gather a backyard full of people at the former's Central Austin home to perform original and traditional folk tunes without amplification. Take in an Erin Ivey gig and there's Elizabeth McQueen adding harmonies..."
"...Directed by: Steve McQueen. Starring: Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan, James Badge Dale, Nichole Beharie, Lucy Walters, Elizabeth Masucci and Robert Montano...."
"...Elizabeth McQueenThe Laziest Girl in Town (Freedom)..."

"...Elizabeth McQueen & the FirebrandsBroken Spoke, Friday, March 14 Even the folks that love country music to death would have to admit that it's a fairly confining genre.

"...Stephanie Bergara, Nakia, Shinyribs’ Kevin Russell, and Elizabeth McQueen..."
"...On her way to another gig, Elizabeth McQueen kicked off the evening with a shortened set from her electro trio EMQ. The local firebrand introduced a sultry cut from Elizabeth McQueen Meet Brothers Lazaroff, “Mind of Men,” written during her tenure on the testosterone-filled Asleep at the Wheel tour bus...."

Biram, Gina Chavez, Churchwood, Dawn & Hawkes, East 35, the Eastern Sea, Harvest Thieves, Holiday Mountain, Cory Kendrix, Malia Grace, Elizabeth McQueen/EMQ, the Narcotx, Neon Cobra, Rosie Flores, Supraman, Total Unicorn, Vanishing Life...."
"...Spoon, also due a new album before the festival, crowns the ATX acts, but Spanish Gold, Grupo Fantasma founder Adrian Quesada’s new joint with former Hacienda guitarist Dante Schwebel and My Morning Jacket Drummer Patrick Hallahan, will be worth a looksee. Elizabeth McQueen, who left ACL mainstays Asleep at the Wheel over the winter, returns for both weeks, while her old boss trots side project Ray Benson & MilkDrive out in the Wheel’s place for week two...."
"...Koo Koo Kangaroo, Lloyd H. Miller (of The Deedle Deedle Dees) with the Austin Phonebook, The Que Pastas, Haley Bonar, Tom Freund and Elizabeth McQueen perform..."
