Liza (pronounced Lee-za) is a Ethiopian-Canadian R&B singer/songwriter with an undeniable presence. Born and raised in Toronto, a city overflowing with blended cultures, it becomes evident that these subtle influences spill over into her music. Her pensive lyrics and progressive production invites listeners on a reflective journey. In 2017, she independently released her debut project titled February 29 which received positive reviews from various music outlets in Canada and across the U.S. Following the release of her debut EP, Liza released a number of follow up singles including, “Here to Stay,” “Passes Me,” “Morning Glory” and most recently, released a mini-EP, entitled “ID.” She has taken the stage at a number of venues in her hometown and abroad, such as NXNE where she opened up for Tinashe, Canadian Music Week, headlining a Manifesto Festival show, and SXSW in Austin, Texas. As fate would have it, she opened for the legendary songstress Lauryn Hill during the 20th Anniversary Miseducation Tour in Toronto alongside Santigold, Busta Rhymes & Tierra Whack and, has opened for Kyle Dion and Raveena during their respective tours.
