The Never Content

The Never Content is similar to an old French saying “jamais deux sans trois,” which translates into the belief that if an event takes place twice, it will probably happen a third time. 

The brainchild of three musicians: Joe Tag, (a New York native) & Liz Saxon, (a Chi-Town Rep) with Tristan Leral, (a Parisian expat), united forces to create an original sound palate of cinematic, electronic, & organic songs, culminating all of their eclectic musical influences.

It all started in 2007 when Joe Tag, drummer/writer/producer & founder of iconic NYC projects such as Etro Anime, stillLife, & Buddhafly, met vocalist Liz Saxon, who had just landed in New York City after a year long pilgrimage in Japan. The two merged forces in a series of successful performances and then decided to lay the foundation for a new project they would call, The Never Content.  

Joe & Liz, heavily influenced by the daring styles of Massive Attack, Portishead, & Radiohead, and the raw, unfettered songwriting of Paul Weller, Peter Gabriel, & Tom Waits, decided to call upon Engineer/Producer Tristan Leral (Etro Anime, Mary J Blige, Lizz Fields) to get onboard & help bring their vision to fruition. 

The result is a dense, emotional journey through musical valleys with electronic textures, organic streams of fluid vocals, & airy, cinematic hues sure to please music aficionados at large.

Press Release:

Out of the Clouds for a Blissful Landing


The Never Content are at ease, comfortable, and quite satisfied with the launch of their self-titled debut album set for release this fall. Beyond the name, there is bliss and the gift of an exceptional compilation of songs bound to engage its listener on many levels.     


At the forefront of this album stand Liz Saxon’s intimate and fluid vocals. Flowing with ease and grace over a sonic picture of electronic textures, cinematic hues, and acoustic instruments, her voice carries an essence of honesty, ardor, and vulnerability. Her performance is real and relatable in a world where incessant vocal gadgetry has become the norm.


Written and produced over a period of two years by Joe Tag, Liz Saxon, and Tristan Leral, this album is a logical sequence of stories that could easily be projected on each of our very own imaginary silver screens. From reminiscing about a meaningful past relationship in the opening title “Rest My Case,” to finding closure in the lush musical landscape of “Marbles,” to grasping the importance of self-preservation in “Rescue Me,” to “Angel Fish,” the end tale about being lazy in love, there is contrast, there is darkness, and there is light.
