One audience member from the Illinois State Fair said: “It was so fun to watch the children on stage dancing with her, my kids had a ball!” Liz has Wowed audiences at County and State Fairs all over with rave reviews.

After opening for Comedian Cedric the Entertainer to a standing ovation, Liz is quickly gaining a reputation for being a hard act to follow. She comes from a blood line of great talent as she is related to Allen Toussaint who has written, arranged, produced and played piano for many of the best New Orleans R&B records ever made. The youngest of seven, Liz was influenced by diverse genres of music, citing Country, R&B, Gospel, Deep House and Salsa among her many influences . When speaking of her music she says, "I could not ignore one genre for another; I just sang what came out and accepted it for what it was... "Country Soul."

Currently studying at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, Liz is dedicated to her craft and destined to be the next ground breaking artist from Illinois. She continues to work on major developments with her project, while traveling and performing throughout the U.S.
