With a reputation for utterly captivating live shows and a string of albums already behind her, Liz Stringer has established herself as one of Melbourne’s most exciting and talented musicians. Described by the Herald Sun as “an old-fashioned, Springsteen-style storyteller with a soulful, mature voice”, Stringer combines intimate, complex narratives with haunting vocals to create unique contemporary roots music. Described by the Music Australia Guide as “a true wordsmith”, Stringer’s voice and intimate stories capture the full spectrum of human emotions.

“These are some of the finest lyrics I have heard from a local artist in recent years.” – Brian Wise, Rhythms Magazine
