Biography

 

Lizzie is a dynamic and commanding vocal artist and a versatile, innovative performer. Studying opera, classical and jazz from an early age, Lizzie has developed a completely unique signature style with a wide vocal range, strong improvisational skills and enjoys experimenting with many different styles.

She has lived and performed in Australia, Indonesia and the UK. During this time she has recorded with the Mitchell and Dewbury Band (Brighton), Jazzanova (Berlin), Razoof (Cologne) and Drumagick (Brazil). Whilst living in Indonesia she formed the duo Paramitsha, releasing a self-titled EP in 2013. The project pulled on many strains of world music, from flamenco, Arabic and jazz to folk and classical. 

Having returned to Australia early 2013, Lizzie is now based in Maleny, Queensland. She released her debut solo EP Leaden Heart, in mid 2014, with the title track making her a finalist in the jazz category for the 2015 Queensland Music Awards.

Since January 2015, Lizzie has been working with Linsey Pollak to develop Dangerous Song. Linsey and Lizzie have created two works. 'Dangerous Song - black' and 'Dangerous Song - blue'. Both these one hour performances evoke an emotional connection and response to the sometimes “hard to swallow” facts about the current Sixth Extinction Crisis, inspiring understanding, love and hopefully action. Dangerous Song is currently touring nationally and internationally.

In early 2016 Lizzie met Ben Walsh and collaborated on a mini project together using only Lizzie's voice but layers and layers of it. This then inspired her to develop a solo project called Lila. Lila is a pure expression of the dance Lizzie is having with her inner self, where each song reflects different facets like honour and appreciation. Lizzie is using her voice as an instrument to portray these intense feelings. Without the use of lyrics, the listener can go where ever they choose to. This project will give you an insight into who Lizzie is and the journey that she has been on with the intent for the listener to be able to tap into their own heart and reflect on their own experiences.
