MUSIC

Cerys Matthews debuted a track from Lizzy's album ‘Best Intentions’ on her Sunday morning show mixed with some wintry words of Rob Macfarlane. - It was a match made in heaven and a source of great inspiration!

That homemade recording not only made it onto BBC 6Music but is also officially housed in The Sound Archives of The British Library.

Since then Lizzy has been developing her own songs and style with a full band. There's no escaping the Northern folk at the roots but it feels fresh and uninhibited by convention. Her dark and tender tales are sung sweetly over finger-picked guitar and swirling synth. It's a lively balance somewhere between folk, prog, rock, and pop.


SINGLE
'WHITE BONES'

On the way to her second album Lizzy will release a small collection 'Songs about death' inspired by various experiences from working as a nurse to wild swimming with expert Vivienne Rickman-Poole.

The first of these ‘White bones’ is set for release at the end of July.

All proceeds from sale of the single will go towards ‘Death Cafe’ and ‘Dying Matters’ - organisations which aim to break the taboo of talking about death and encourage people to see it as a part of life : the good the bad and the ugly of it.




ALBUM
'BEST INTENTIONS'

A collection of folk songs from the British Isles recorded in the spare room, played on BBC 6 Music and archived in The British Library!

Available to stream and also to buy - limited edition CDs with the lino cut artwork individually printed on the sleeve.
