A multi-linguist with a philosophy degree, Eliza studied Jazz at London’s Guildhall before self-producing her first EP, recorded at the studio of Clean Bandit’s Jack Patterson. She then signed to UK label Beatnik Creative and released two critically acclaimed EPs, working with Mercury-nominated long time collaborator Chris Bond. Championed by tastemakers such as Beat 1’s Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and supported by the likes of Wonderland, i-D Magazine and FADER, the EPs set the stage for an artist thriving on producing work abundant in sincerity and empowerment.
Eliza released her debut album Future in 2018, receiving praise from the likes of Rolling Stone and The Sunday Times. Named a Rising Star of 2019 by the BBC, her reputation for powerful live shows has seen her touring extensively, taking in the UK, Europe and the USA, and playing dates with the likes of Kate Tempest, Oh Wonder, Lucy Rose, James Bay, and Turin Brakes.
Kara will be chatting to Eliza about her recently released EP Sept-Dec and her upcoming UK tour which will see her play The Hug and Pint in Glasgow on Thursday 12th March.
