Liz and the Lofty Things - ‘Your Waltz’ - Out 9th February 2015

“Your Waltz” is the debut single released by folk group Liz and the Lofty Things. The 4 piece folk group is headed up by Liz Williams, a Canadian born, London dwelling songwriter, guitarist and singer.

Liz started playing/writing music at the age of 5 in Toronto, influenced by Tori Amos, Ani Difranco, Ella Fitzgerald and folk greats like James Taylor. At the age of 17 Liz moved to Italy where she studied photography and Italian in a medieval town in Abruzzo. After taking some time to explore Europe on her own she came to London where she lived in a hostel for over a year, hearing stories from other travelers and meeting like-minded musicians.

Liz met the Lofty Things (Katie, Chris, Kylie and Corinna) over the course of a few years and the group formed in 2012. They have been playing shows all over the UK including Guilfest, Weyfest, Dukestock and various other festivals in the SE.

Your Waltz is the first single from LLT’s debut album Confessions of the Seasons (out Spring 2015). The overwhelmingly heart-warming love song is accompanied by a softly beautiful video shot at Joss Bay. The album was co-produced by singer-songwriter Liz Williams and Mark Estall (their hearts were full of spring, GCP, Jimmy Hickmott). Each song from the album focuses on insightful storytelling, expressed through a careful choice of instrumentation and arrangement of each song.

“Liz from Liz and the Lofty Things has evolved from a first-class solo singer song-writer into a fresh and exciting songstress backed by a supreme band of outstanding musicians. Their debut single 'Your Waltz' embodies all of these attributes and I can't wait to hear more.” - David Durant - Under The Radar Live Sessions (Brooklands Radio)
