With peculiar focus, Lizz seamlessly weaves through the genres of gospel, jazz, folk, pop, and blues, handling them like colors on a palette. Ultimately, it is the voice, the stories told and the call to connect that transcend categorization and stir her audiences. Lizz is a native of Georgia and studied classical vocal music at Georgia State University in Atlanta.
