about

piKziL

piKziL is the musical creation of Liza Oxnard and Kip Kuepper. Long-time friends and collaborators, the two describe their music as somewhere between slanky electro-lounge and jazz nouveaux, with a little bit of scenester grit thrown in.

You might know Liza Oxnard from her successful 90’s touring band, Zuba, or perhaps you’ve heard her sitting in over the years with Colorado favorites String Cheese Incident and The Motet. She is an accomplished composer, has a luscious voice, and completely shreds on the guitar.

Kip Kuepper spent decades as co-owner, producer, and resident musical genius at Coupe Studios in Boulder. A Grammy nominated musician, Kip has performed at jazz festivals across the US, releasing multiple albums as engineer/producer/player with guitar great Danny Heines, and woodwind virtuoso Nelson Rangell.

Liza’s raw and emotive musicality, smooth vocal style and playful, catchy melodies combined with Kip’s lush arrangements, hook mastery and deep jazz influences are the perfect counterbalance.

piKziL is a warm and primordial roux, a hot tango between Astrud Gilberto and Debbie Harry. piKzil is cool, urbane, a place where trumpets float like Dark Rum in a Mai Tai, as magnetic orbits intersect in space.

Their first CD, to be released September 16th 2016, unveils a comforting crackle of vinyl long-play as violins swell in anticipation of a grand reveal. Slippery Sambas bent on a warm embrace, elegantly caramelize particles out of every sound.

This is an alternate universe where taxicab girls lie silky and hot, sunning in lounge chairs by the pool of an imaginary motel…a place where Beck and Joni Mitchell might play a fierce round of Bocce.

The music is cinematic, evocative, funky, and inexplicably sentimental.

Track Name: Can't Get Started
I’ve flown around the world in a plane
I’ve settled revolutions in Spain
The North Pole I have charted
But I can’t get started with you

I dream both day and night of you
But tell me what good does it do
And you have me downhearted
Cuz I can’t get started with you…..

When the time was right…… I sold short
In London I’m presented at court
But you have me downhearted
Cuz I can’t get started with you….

…….“I’ve flown around the world
……“I’ve flown around the world - - - world
Track Name: Felix's Lament
I just want to love you
But I can't afford to love you

As I'm opening up my dress
Your eyes on an epic journey
I welcome you into my nest
You can't keep your self from

I just want to love you
But I can't afford to love you

You're having a modicum of success
Hands navigating blindly
Your heart is galloping from your chest
A leaping Felix in the stratosphere

Say, why torture all this longing
With guilt not pleasure
You may have someone else I know
But guaranteed, I can make you feel

You never will elude me
You must surrende…to me…to me

You never will elude me
You must surrender to me...to me

I just want to love you
But I can't afford to love you
I just want to love you
But I can't afford to love you
Track Name: A Woman Understands
Between the Heart and hands it takes to love a man
A woman understands
Between her heart and soul, you know it takes a toll
When she’s all alone
Between the day and night, between the wrong & right
A woman’s arms are warm
Between the give and take, you know she lies awake
Singin’ a silent song

When the phone rings / you know I’m always home
I’m a sister, daughter, mother, lover
And I’m always on
When the doorbell rings, you know I’ve been on my own
I’m a sister, daughter, mother, lover
And I’m always yours

So when you’re here with me
I need you to really be
And when you’re here with me
I need you to look at me
When you’re here with me
I need you to really see
Sow a little love in me
I can build a family tree
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh – uh!
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh – uh!

A man’s got his mind on the bottom line
It takes a lot of time to bring the dollar signs
A woman keeps the pace; she goes place to place
It takes a lot of grace, to wear so many faces

When the phone rings / you know I’m always home
I’m a sister, daughter, mother, lover
And I’m always on
When the doorbell rings, you know I’ve been on my own
I’m a sister, daughter, mother, lover
And I’m always yours

So when you’re here with me
I need you to really be
And when you’re here with me
I need you to look at me
When you’re here with me
I need you to really see
Sow a little love in me
I can build a family tree
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh – uh!
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh – uh!
Track Name: Brand New Soul
Yea, I’m freeeee
Yea, I’m freeeee

From a spark of dust
We combust and turn love into life
This mystery and magic hold on and let go
Surrender and wait for the show
In a vortex of light
From obscure we endure and we grow
But the moment is fleeting; this waiting and dreaming
A trip, it’s a burst, the unknown

Free - ee – Freeeee
Freee – ee – Free – ee –ee –ee –ee

From a seed ‘til we cease
We release let the journey unfold
We’re apart, we’re entwined
In the body the mind
We are one, we are young, we are old
………If you believe in love,
Then you’re walking on a winding road
And you believe in love


If you believe in love
Love, if you believe in love
Love, if you believe in love
………Love, you believe in love
……….Yeah I’m free
……….Yeah I’m free… if you believe in love
……….Yeah I’m free
……….Yeah I’m free…. you believe in love
(believe, believe, believe, believe)
……….Yeah I’m free………believe in love


From a spark of dust
We combust and turn love into life
We combust and turn love into life
into life…..into life…..into life…..into life
Love, if you believe in love
if you believe in love
if you believe in love
if you believe in love
Track Name: Rango Tango
Aren’t someone that I used to know
Gotye and Kimbra on the radio
Roll up the windows and lock all the doors
Look outside, it’s about to pour

You snaked your way into my world that day
I knew the words that I forgot to say
We slipped into your car & you looked like a Czar
You acted like one too, & so I’m ready to

Go-o-o-o-o
Go-oh-oh-oh-oh
Go-oh-oh-oh - ooo ooo

Congratulations on becoming a grad
Magna Cum Laude in being a cad
It’s easy now to sift through all the bad and good
You’re at your best when you play misunderstood

Now Go-o-o-o-o
Go-oh-oh-oh-oh
Go-oh-oh-oh - ooo ooo
Track Name: Here's The News
I’ve got the news, I got the message
And I’m givin’ it to ya
(But you gotta be, gotta be good to me)
Just feel the beat and we’ll get undressed
Now you better come groove me
(But you gotta be, gotta be good to me)

Tokyo Dubai L.A., pictures in your lingerie,
No on is quite the same
I’m not playing a game
Around the world all over town, high society underground
Amp it up, rock it ‘round, everybody wants to get down

Skin on skin
Peel my sin
Hot, wet……… feelin’

I’ve got the news, I got the message
And I’m sockin’ it to ya
(But you gotta be, gotta be good to me)
Just take a bite and feel your heart pound
Cause I’m drivin it through ya
(But you gotta be, gotta be good to me)
