Will Purdue, the introspective and emotional singer-songwriter and Liza Bec, the alternative multi-instrumentalist, continue their collaboration, showcasing their evolving and exciting new material from their latest releases.
Will’s soulful Cohen-esque baritone and Liza’s pure soprano combine in a truly unique combination of sultry harmonies, with Liza adding both recorder and saxophone to Will’s skilful and sensitive guitar. Together they create a very classic and rarely heard sound, fusing elements of folk storytelling with alternative rock.
Liza and Will share a love of songs as stories. Will’s EP ‘Rumour & Confession’ is a collection of tales inspired by the great 60s folk singers, with a raw and direct lyrical honesty and power. Liza brings her own unique fusion style to ‘Beyond the Blonde’- think Portishead with added recorder and sax. Her thrilling short story of the same name is included as an insert to the limited edition 12” vinyl EP.
