Liz Simcock writes songs and performs them in folk and acoustic clubs in and around the Southeast and beyond. In 1999 she featured on the Playpen Album of New Acoustic Music alongside Eliza Carthy, Billy Bragg, Eddi Reader and Kathryn Williams. Since then she has trodden an independent path, gaining a growing reputation as a performer and songwriter. Liz counts Richard Thompson, Clive Gregson, Boo Hewerdine and Joni Mitchell amongst her main songwriting role models. Liz’s fourth album (Friday Night Train Home) was released in November 2013.
For the past few years Liz has worked with the virtuoso backing of Dave Ellis on guitar and Boo Howard on bass. 2015 will see her heading out for a series of solo gigs, and in November she will be touring with Clive Gregson, in a celebration of the Gregson & Collister back catalogue.
