In Conversation: Elizabeth Liddle
As we eagerly await the return of the city’s music venues, we caught up with a few of the region’s rising stars to see how they’ve managed to keep the tunes coming and the music playing during the pandemic
We caught up with melodic songstress, Elizabeth Liddle, to chat about her musical journey to date…
How has growing up in the area influenced your music?
A lot of great artists have come out of the region, which always gives you hope for your own career.
Has lockdown helped your creativity?
Lockdown gave me the time to write new material that I’m really happy with! I’ve also written some new tunes with a couple of friends over FaceTime!
Any favourite live stream performances?
Two of my favourite bands, Mamas Gun and Kodaline, did great live streams. I’ve also enjoyed a lot of local artists such as PICNIC, Noyou, Komparison, Lottie Willis and Adam from the Pale White.
How important have sunderland’s music venues been for your journey?
They have been so important for me, especially Independent Sunderland as i’ve performed there quite a few times.
Shoutout to another artist making big noise in the city…
PICNIC and Post Rome have released singles this year, which I absolutely love! I supported PICNIC in March, which was my last gig before lockdown. I’ve also played on their cover album for the Sunderland Food Bank – performing a version of their new single for a great cause!
Favourite Sunderland venue…
The guys at Independent Sunderland are doing such an amazing job; their weekly live streams have really helped local artists continue to get their music out to a wide audience.
