LIZ LOKRE, “Stop Runnin'”
Toronto singer/songwriter Liz Lokre makes the most of a powerful piano ballad called “Stop Runnin'” by having it featured in the recently released and highly acclaimed film “Little Italy” (starring fellow Toronto area native Hayden Christensen, and set on Toronto’s Italian strip on College Street). The song grabs you from the first few words she sings and doesn’t let you go in its empowering story of self-realization that so many young people can relate to. The melody and piano playing create a lovely, warm, and inviting cushion. “Stop Runnin'” could do well, particularly in Canada, at Adult Contemporary radio which would surely welcome such a glowing song with big intentions.
