Liz Lawrence is an acoustic singer/songwriter from London, England. Starting in the punk rock and ska scene, she has been able to show an edgy style to her music.
She describes her music as, “bittersweet, romantic, melodic, honest, homemade and sentimental.”
“I like to think I take the strength and emotion from the high octane records I grew myself up on and use that energy on stage,” Lawrence said.
Performing live has been the most enjoyable experience in her career, according to Lawrence.
“I love the studio process and the intricacies, I love production and arrangement and the control, but the product is totally different to what you get taking the song at face value and playing live,” Lawrence said. “On the tight-rope or the trapeze, live performance leaves nowhere to hide, it heightens your senses, it’s exhilarating and difficult and you will never play or see the same show twice.”
Lawrence’s latest album, “Bedroom Hero,” focuses on song writing.
“I wanted to express the feelings of excitement, sacrifice and fragility that songwriters subject themselves to in order to create something important to people,” Lawrence said. “The album is personal but also universally aimed at the heart of the listener through the emotions of my 18- and 19-year-old self.”
Lawrence has been letting her music take her to new places.
“I’m just enjoying playing and writing at the moment and working out the plan for the album release too,” Lawrence said.
Her debut album was released on March 30th in the Republic of Ireland.
