At the 239th Anniversary of the US navy for the Wounded Warriors Veterans, Liza Jane performed. Whilst this was merely linked to her tireless efforts to help homeless vets through charity work, she certainly did not go unnoticed: the City Commissioners of Key West named the day in June 2015 in her honor and recognition of all her humanitarian achievements.
So who is Liza Jane?
She was born in 1998 in Key West, Florida and began singing at an early age to become a soprano vocalist. Distinctive indeed if one considers that Liza Jane was the only ever soprano vocalist to win a district-level competition with a “superior-plus” rating. Later on, at age 11, she performed at the St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Key West – the youngest ever soloist who were invited for such a performance. Fast-forward to today, she is majoring in Classical Voice Performance at Belmont University in Nashville, where she is also a member of the Nashville Opera Guild. Liza Jane is proud to have Italian heritage and is enthusiastic about fitness, meditation, swimming, and travel.
Liza Jane had a passion for singing and performance since a young age
After becoming known, other popular performers were quick to involve this new rising star. Liza Jane was invited to open several acts including The Grand Funk Railroad, The Doobie Brothers, Three Dog Night – and she sang with Paul Cotton (formerly of the rock group Poco). The list goes on: she also worked with Phil Brown (formerly of Little Feat) – and James Slater, the Grammy-nominated songwriter of Nashville. Evident of her true ability to be diverse, Liza even performed at the Bottle Cup Jazz club in her hometown, The green room, and DoubleTree resort.
Liza’s first album
Her first record album was called “We Can Start a Fire” – which was produced with a well-known songwriter Biff Watson. At the time, when asked about her inspiration for future work, Liza said: “many of my confessional alt-pop ballads are rooted in my own feelings and experiences – and since I enjoy playing guitar and piano, it gives me pleasure to produce music that is in tune with what I do as an artist”.
A Liza Jane single – “Asleep”
Liza Jane commented as follows: “The song Asleep personifies depression and anxiety, something I’ve always struggled with and that many others do. I want to keep bringing awareness to the issue”.
Her second album
She is in the final preparation stages to release her second Album. It is anticipated around December 2019 / January 2020. Her social channels are all buzzing with fans who are clearly in anticipation of the next release.
Why the second album looks promising
Besides the fact that Liza’s social channels have ballooned in recent months, there is a lot of positivity from influencers in the music industry. To name just three examples:
“… I WAS EXCITED AND INSPIRED BY THE FRESH AND HONEST SOUND OF LIZA’S VOICE AND THE SHEER CATCHINESS OF THE SONGS. GREAT VIBES.”- SIMON EDWARDS, BASSIST/PRODUCER (MICHAEL JACKSON, DAVID GREY)
“LIZA JANE HAS A UNIQUE, SOULFUL VOICE… AND I THINK IT’S SOMETHING YOU COULD HEAR ON ALTERNATIVE POP CHARTS. LIZA IS ON A GREAT TRACK, DOING SOME REALLY COOL THINGS.”- BRENT LONG, TOUR MANAGER (BRAD PAISLEY)
“SHE IS ONE OF THOSE RARE ARTISTS WHO CAN MAKE WHATEVER SHE SINGS COME THRILLINGLY ALIVE TO THE LISTENER AND SHE DOES SO BY COMBINING HEARTFELT PASSION AND FINE VOCAL ABILITY.”- GARY CATANA, VOCAL COACH (WHITNEY HOUSTON, ANDREA BOCELLI)
To be notified of her future albums and live events, the best way is to find her across social channels.
