“I want people to be inspired by my words. My songs come from my real experiences and things I’ve been through.”
Lizzie is an award-winning singer/songwriter. She describes her sound as “eclectic with lots of soul”.
Lizzie made history when she released her debut album Loud and Proud and became the first solo artist with a learning disability to release an album of original songs in the UK.
She continued making her mark in the music industry, winning two national awards, performing across the UK and Europe and releasing three more EPs – The Clan, My Baboo and Meds (out in Spring 2019).
Lizzie has collaborated with a number of songwriters and musicians in a unique creative process to create her music. These include Charles Stuart (musical director for Grace Jones) and Robbie Fordjour (drummer for Courtney Pine’s band). Other collaborators include Arthur Lea, Bobbie-Jane Gardner, JB Rose and Grace Savage.
Lizzie’s latest EP ‘Meds’ looks at Lizzie’s experiences of mental health and how she gained back control of her own life.
