the territories Tour
Musically broad and emotionally deep, Liz DeRoche is jumping into a new solo project with huge ambitions.
“It’s the emotional impact I’m looking for”, says DeRoche, “I want to make meaningful music that people will take personally.”
A prolific writer, Liz has released five albums, two EP’s and collaborated with numerous award-winning musicians from coast to coast. Her style leans toward piano-based electronica mingled with soulful anthemic melodies.
Liz began playing piano and drums when she was just four years old. Growing up in the green valleys of Western Oregon, she drew her inspiration from nature and the influence of her musically creative family.
After backpacking throughout the Americas and Europe, Liz moved to Washington, DC in 2008 to pursue her dream of working as a full-time musician. There she founded her own independent record label, AlphaBeat Records, dedicated to the release of family-friendly music, and began to use The Singing Lizard, a childhood nickname, as a moniker.
In both 2010 and 2011, Liz was a recipient of a DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities Young Artist Grant. 2010 saw her voted #1 Party Entertainer by Nickelodeon’s Parents’ Pick Awards. Tagg Magazine chose Liz as the “Woman You Should Meet [of the Year]” In 2015.
In addition to her work as The Singing Lizard, Liz performs with The Pushovers (since 2009), Cane & the Sticks (since 2011), and Tom Goss (since 2013), contributing drums, keyboard/piano, vocals, and production/arrangements. Liz is now happy to call the San Francisco Bay Area home, and has worked with Girls Rock for the past ten years.
