Liz Green

Liz Green is a Manchester-based singer-songwriter who, in 2007, won the Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent competition. In 2011 she released her debut album, 'O, Devotion'.

With her odd quavering and expressive voice and acoustic hillbilly approach, Manchester's Liz Green sounds more like she belongs to the early part of the 20th century than the 21st, which gives her slight output a refreshing uniqueness.

Green grew up listening to her father's mixtapes, which exposed her to the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Chuck Berry, the Jackson 5, and other pop acts, but she found herself gravitating to distinctive earlier artists like Son House, Bessie Smith, and Edith Piaf, and eventually she picked up the guitar and began to write songs, albeit songs that sounded like they originated in the previous century.

She started playing acoustic nights around Manchester and soon signed with local label Humble Soul Records, which released a 7" single pairing two Green originals, 'Bad Medicine' and 'French Singer' in 2008.
