Lizzie Marvelly

Bio

Discovered by Frankie Stevens and her famous uncle, Sir Howard Morrison, in her early teens, Lizzie Marvelly was on the road at age 16. Described as a ‘true songbird’ and, by the Prime Minister himself, as a ‘national treasure’, her musical life has been something of a wild ride: two major international signings, two top-ten albums, two European tours, concerts in Asia and Arabia amongst others, a smash-hit charity single and countless national anthems and tours. In just seven years, Lizzie has become something of an industry veteran at the (not very) grown-up age of 24.

Writing her first song at age six, so began a journey of music discovery throughout her school years. When she fell into the classical crossover genre as a teenager, Lizzie continued to write music, scribbling lyrics on various hotel notepads as she travelled around the world.

“Writing is an amazing, but vulnerable process. Layered under every word and chord are some of the most painful and joyful moments of my life. As Joni so perfectly put it, ’part of you pours out of me in these lines from time to time’.”
Then there’s the kindness she’s known for. In 2011 in the aftermath of the devastating Christchurch earthquake, Lizzie reached out to her industry friends and colleagues including Britain’s Got Talent winner, Paul Potts, and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, to join her in raising money for the Red Cross Appeal. The resulting concert, “To Christchurch, With Love”, was a runaway success, raising $115,000.

After two successful classical crossover albums, Lizzie undertook a journey of exploration.

During 2013, she travelled to the UK and Australia, working with some amazing co-writers and producers, such as the Ivor Novello Award-winning Dan G. Sells and Richard Jones from the Brit Award-winning band, The Feeling. During her travels she began what is currently a constantly evolving process to find her style. Working with star producers Stuart Crichton (Delta Goodrem, Jamelia, Guy Sebastian, Sugababes) and Lindsay Rimes (Reese Mastin, Stan Walker, the McClymonts, Timomatic), Lizzie’s album showcases the beginning of a new musical future.

Opening with the title track, Collisions, Lizzie’s developing brand of emotive storytelling sets the scene with insightful lyrics, driving pop beats, and catchy melodies. My Own Hero adds a layer of empowerment, which is later compounded by the motivational anthem, Generation Young. The melancholy, haunting Glory Days hints at the darker moments of Lizzie’s adventure to find both her sound and herself, while Letting Go rounds up the offering with a heartfelt account about the difficulty of moving on.

From the Collisions of Lizzie’s two musical worlds, to the eventual act of Letting Go, this EP represents the work of a young kiwi artist, paving her own path and following her music wherever it may lead.
