“Florence-minus-the-hollering, stomping stage routine hinting at a feisty little madam beneath the adorable, heavy fringe-adorned veneer, promising a new starlet in the making” – Q magazine
“Amazing” – Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6
“Liz Lawrence is one of the hottest new troubadours around”. Hot Press, January 2012
London-based artist Liz Lawrence makes hook-filled, exciting and honest acoustic music. Playing in punk and ska bands in her early teens, she engaged in a full blown love affair with live performance. Her punk history may not be obvious on first impressions but once she starts to march on the stage her nature cannot be suppressed. Still only 21, Liz writes mature sculpted songs with instant melodic hooks and lyrics that talk to her listeners with honesty and compassion.
With her publishing already snapped up by Sony/ATV, her debut album ‘Bedroom Hero’ is now out in Ireland and is getting plenty of radio play. A 3-track live studio EP, ‘Live From No. 82’ has just been released worldwide on Young & Lost.
Constantly gigging in London and starting to push out further afield, Liz has supported artists such as Scouting for Girls, Xavier Rudd, Ben Howard, Brooke Fraser, Young the Giant, Yoav, The Civil Wars, Jake Morley and one of her idols Ani Difranco, who commented on Liz as “a beautiful artist who lives on the edge”.
