Lizzy O’Connor


Cerys Matthews championed a track from the debut album ‘Best Intentions’ on her Sunday morning show last year, beautifully mixing a clutch of wintery words read by Rob Macfarlane over the instrumental section to boot. Somewhat proudly and strangely, that album is now officially housed in The Sound Archives of The British Library! Since all of that excitement Lizzy has been developing her own songs and style with a full band. Whilst there’s no escaping the Northern folk at the root of the music, there’s a clear and enjoyable disregard for genre, conform and indeed perfection in it. The combination of a punk drummer, jazz guitarist and disco bassist wrap themselves beautifully and strangely round Lizzy’s voice and swirling synth. Like a breath of fresh air somewhere between prog, rock, folk and pop. People are surprised by the groove and inspired by the honesty (and theatrics) at live shows.
