TeamRock: ‘hugely talented….her voice was truly unique, and when you added her abilities on the saxophone, keyboard and recorder to the mix throughout the set, you had a potent combination’
Loud & Quiet ‘gorgeous detail….Liza Bec’s fluttering clarinet flourishes….provide both height and depth’
The Guardian: ‘joyous….ecstatic, burbling flute improvisations‘
Let Liza’s charismatic and eclectic live show intrigue and enchant you! With a live sound reminiscent of Portishead with a touch of Fiona Apple, she will transport you from funk to folk, mixing catchy songs with intricate recorder, sax and clarinet improvisations.
Liza writes short stories embodying the spirit of her songs, included in the vinyl release of EP Beyond the Blonde as a gorgeous insert featuring custom designed graphics by Catalina Velasquez Gonzalez.
She has also collaborated with electronic artist James Holden on his latest release ‘The Animal Spirits’ which was featured on BBC 6music as Album of the Day, co-writing and playing treble recorder on the track ‘Spinning Dance’. She performed with the Animal Spirits on the European festival circuit in 2018.
Liza is currently working on an original audiovisual installation about music-triggered epilepsy, featuring a specially designed electronic tenor recorder with visuals from Dan Tombs (Gold Panda, Jon Hopkins). She was awarded funding for this work by Help Musicians UK Fusion Fund. It will be released in late 2019.
She is available for bookings with full band/acoustic duo and for solo ambient electroacoustic sets on tenor recorder and synthesizer.
