BIOGRAPHY

Liz Stringer was playing piano before she could talk. The dye was cast young. She grew up in Melbourne, Australia, the youngest of three kids. Her Dad was a music teacher, her Mum a literature and history teacher. The house reverberated with music of some kind constantly. There were instruments and books on every surface. And the backyard was littered with Aussie rules footies, cricket bats and tennis racquets. Ball sports and art. It was a good way to grow up.

At thirteen Liz won a music scholarship to an elite private girls school. She spent a few years there, making the most of the grand pianos and the sports facilities. It was a supportive, but rigid, environment. At fifteen she started playing guitar. At sixteen she went to Germany, started a band and recorded her first demo with her friends. Onto cassette. She cut her performing teeth in Germany. And learned how to drink beer and smoke cigarettes. Everyone smoked back then.

She returned to Melbourne, went to her local high school, and began to write more and more songs. The guitar went everywhere with her. She busked for beer money and worked in a terrible buffet restaurant after school to save for a return to Europe.

After she finished high school she went back to Germany, picked up the band where they’d left it, borrowed a black Fender Stratocaster and a Bassman amp, secured a rehearsal studio in a World War II bunker and rehearsed religiously over the next three years. They played a few gigs. And had a lot of fun.

Then she went to England. To follow love, and obtain enough work to sustain her continuing life in Europe. She learned how to barkeep, she wrote more and more songs, played some solo shows and began to focus on the acoustic guitar again.

In 2003 she returned to Melbourne. And by 2006 had made her first album, “Soon” with her best mate, drummer Adam May. Twelve years later, she’s released five subsequent albums, toured all over Australia and in other corners of the world and calls some of the most influential roots musicians in the world among her doting fan base. And she’s made a new record in Toronto, Canada, due for release in early 2020. The next chapter rolls on, as Stringer gathers an ever-growing arsenal of musical skill and song writing acumen. And sets her eyes to a place at the table of the most important and respected songwriters of the modern era.
