Liz Lawrence is a British artist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. In the years since her first outing as a solo artist in 2012, Liz has spent time as one half of pop duo Cash + David and singing and touring with her friends Bombay Bicycle Club, which took her on a two-year-long tour around the world. After teaching herself how to produce, she realised that she had become good enough to make her own music in the way she wanted to make it, on her own terms. She released the first fruits of this experimental labour throughout 2018, as a series of double A-side single releases: Chainsmoking, Circling Numbers, and The Good Part. These gave her the space she needed to rediscover her own identity, and who she was as an artist. She returned in 2019 with her album Pity Party, an unvarnished yet defiant snapshot of her world right now. Judging by the calibre of songs littering the album, 2020 looks set to be an exciting year in the career of this determined and talented British artist.
