Lizzy O'Connor



Sound Therapy




Working as a backing vocalist and instrumentalist (mandolin/ banjo/ keyboard/ percussion) she has toured, performed live and recorded with a talented diversity of artists including Amy Macdonald, U.N.K.L.E., Nadine Khouri, MG Boulter, Troubadour Rose and choreographer Juri Nishi.

Cerys Matthews recently played a song from Lizzy's album on her Sunday show on BBC 6 and beautifully mixed a 'clutch of wintery words' read by the esteemed Rob Macfarlane over the instrumental section.

A rich Northern heritage is clear throughout Lizzy's music yet there is something more - creeping in unexpected places hints of disonance and embraced discord, abstract harmonics, bizarre field recordings and occasional pop rhythms.

From ice rinks in Russia to museums in London via bedsides and river beds and singing up trees Lizzy's musical journey continues. For new projects, collaborations and places to perform... get in touch if you'd like to be involved or book a performance.


A collection of folk songs from the British Isles plus two of her own compositions (The Ballad of John Stoker & Winter) The album was recorded and produced by Lizzy herself In December last year with some excellent artists getting involved to lend a hand. The album is significantly called 'best intentions' and is presented with exactly that.

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