Liz Green is a 24 year old self-taught singer and guitar player from Manchester, UK. Sounding like the missing link between Karen Dalton and Jolie Holland, Liz’s voice is a timeless, effortless throwback, unique and indisputable. Already her ability exceeds Liz’s far too modest nature. Ably supported on nimble bass by Stuart Eastham, Liz would break the heart of even the most empty individual with her delivery of lyrics like “If I act like I never had love, it’s not as if I haven’t tried” from her track French Singer, the b-side to her debut single which was released to critical acclaim in August 2007 and sold out in its first week. Liz’s introduction to music was an education in pop, via her Dad’s mix tapes. Ranging from the Stones and Chuck Berry to Jackson 5 and Elton John, they inspired Liz to pick up a guitar, although it took her another seven years to learn four chords! It wasn’t until she discovered finger picking that she began playing ‘properly’ and writing her own songs. The style she has developed also goes some way to explaining her love affair with country and bluegrass. Liz was the overall winner of 2007’s Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition, which resulted in her playing a set on the prestigious Pyramid Stage, along with several other festival appearances at Glastonbury Festival and followed by performances at Latitude and End of the Road Festival. At the time of writing, Liz is busy in the studio recording her debut album, set for release early in 2008.
