Since the release of her first album ;Soon’ in 2006, Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Liz Stringer has carved out a reputation as one of Australia’s most respected and critically acclaimed songwriters and performers. She has recorded and released four studio albums, with her latest, 2012’s ‘Warm In The Darkness’, being shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize and named ‘Album of The Year’ by Brian Wise of RRRfm Melbourne and Rhythms Magazine.
In October 2014, Liz released a live solo album and DVD, ‘Live at The Yarra’. Recorded and filmed at the iconic Yarra Hotel in Abbotsford, the release received significant critical acclaim (including making Triple J Roots and All’s ’10 best albums of 2014’ list), and led to sold out shows on a 15-date solo tour around Australia, immediately followed by a support slot on The Waifs’ national tour.
Highly respected by her peers as a talented multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Liz has collaborated with many artists including Mick Thomas, Damian Cowell, Van Walker, Suzannah Espie and Mia Dyson. She is one third of the power trio Dyson Stringer Cloher, collaborating with friends and contemporaries Mia Dyson and Jen Cloher, who undertook a 35 date Australian tour at the end of 2013, earning the title of ‘Best Live Gig of 2013’ from the Rhythm Magazine readers poll, and followed up with appearances at Blues Fest and Queenscliff Festival in 2014. Liz is also a member of the critically acclaimed Livingstone Daisies, along with Van and Cal Walker and Michael Barclay.
A passionate advocate of independent music and extensive regional touring, Liz has become a favorite among punters across Australia for her generous and engaging stage demeanour and her skill as a songwriter. As Mick Thomas puts it, “Her performance is as intense as it is personable, as profane as it is sacred”.
Not content with conquering the local scene, Liz has recently toured in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands, and was officially showcased at the Folk Alliance International Conference in Kansas City, USA in February 2014.
