Liz is a singer, song maker, natural voice practitioner, performer and Shiatsu Therapist.
She currently runs She Sings, a women’s process-oriented singing group and an international programme called Sing For The Trees for Tree Sisters to raise awareness and funds for this radical women-led reforestation initiative.
Liz set up Sing For Earth Day, which ran for the first time in 2019, and many of her songs are being used in groups, on marches/protests, and to support causes.
Her song cycle Songs Of Grace and Grit is a set of original songs based on the “Work That Reconnects” by Joanna Macy.
In 2018 Liz made a music video of her Raise Your Voice song with the Earth Voice Community Choir as a message carrier to celebrate the launch of Mission Life Force encouraging people to sign up as Earth Trustees.
Her Resonance work is a combination of song, embodiment, movement and nature connection and has a focus of women’s empowerment, health, well being and connection to nature. Liz runs a CiC working with creative mentoring and environmental awareness with young people and helped to run a music-based charity for many years (The Music Works) working with young people in challenging circumstances and training teachers in inclusive singing.
Liz runs Singing For Breathing groups, nature-based retreats to the wild, song-centred ceremony and works on a variety of multi-arts projects with inclusion, health and creativity at the heart of her work.
Her singing work, training and performance-based work have taken her into a wide variety of places over the last 20 years including hundreds of schools, children’s centres, hospitals, WOMAD festival, Edinburgh Festival, Cheltenham Music Festival, Sing For Water, running community choirs, MIND, Sing Up, looked-after children’s projects, education conferences, Women In Power and community-based creative initiatives.
Liz trained in Community Music in Cardiff in 1996 and is a long-standing member of the NVN since it began in 2000.
She spent many years running community choirs and lived on an eco-community in Wales for several years learning first-hand about sustainable ways of living.
Liz now lives in Stroud, Gloucestershire and is a mother of 2 young adults, who are her biggest inspiration!
