Lizzie Emeh is one of Heart n Soul’s key artists. She uses music to touch people's lives.
Lizzie launched her debut album Loud and Proud in October 2009 and made history as the first solo artist with a learning disability to release an album to the general public of her own songs. She describes her sound as, “Eclectic, wide-ranging and with lots of soul.”
Lizzie co-writes all her songs. She doesn’t write lyrics down, she writes them in her head and then works with the musicians to come up with the mood, beats, chords and melodies she wants.
Since Loud and Proud, Lizzie has been on a UK tour and won 2 national awards for her achievements in music- Radar People of the Year and Ability Media International awards. In 2012, she performed at the London Paralympic Games opening ceremony with Beverley Knight.
Lizzie’s EP The Clan features tracks inspired by Lizzie’s own experience of the world. Describing it as “Eclectic, wide-ranging and with lots of soul,” Lizzie says of her music, “It’s coming from different situations. I sing from the heart and I sing about true life." The second EP My Baboo, focusses on love and relationships.
One more EP Meds will be released before her second album release - See Me.
