Kiwi songstress Elizabeth Marvelly has been described by Prime Minister John Key as "a national treasure". Signed by UK-based label EMI Classics at seventeen, her debut album reached the top ten, and was gold certified within five days of release.
Twenty-one year old Elizabeth has been hand-picked and moulded by some of New Zealand’s most celebrated performers, such as Dame Malvina Major, Frankie Stevens, and the great master of the New Zealand stage, the late Sir Howard Morrison.
Graduating from high school at the end of 2007, Elizabeth spent 2008 performing around the globe. Early in the year Elizabeth travelled through New Zealand and Australia as Paul Potts’ guest artist, and she later would join him again for his sold-out arena tour of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
An avid rugby supporter, she has sung many national anthems for her favourite team, the All Blacks. She has performed concerts in Beijing, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, London, Berlin, Vienna and Dubai among others, and sets aside time to lend a hand to causes close to her heart, such as the SPCA.
In February of 2009 she toured through her beloved New Zealand with fellow crossover singer Geoff Sewell, and later that year headed back to Europe to fulfil concert engagements, most notably appearing again as Paul Potts’ guest artist on his winter tour of Continental Europe and the UK.
Throughout 2009 and 2010, Elizabeth has been working with Grammy-nominated producer Nick Patrick to create a new album to follow up her eponymous debut.
Elizabeth’s second album, Home, is to be released in February 2011. She will headline the "Home tour" of New Zealand with the NZSO in April.
