A fusion of avant-garde jazz, contemporary folk and world music…with a dash of humour.
Scotland-based singer-songwriter Lizabett Russo merges her native traditions with elements of contemporary jazz, avant garde folk and world music, a range of influence effortlessly spanned by her powerfully versatile voice.
In 2013, Lizabett released her EP entitled The Traveller’s Song, which found favour with online publications from across Europe, the US and Canada. Her stock across Europe is high, having played shows in Amsterdam, Zurich, Barcelona, Paris and Bucharest while her presence in UK led to supporting acclaimed musicians such as Rachel Sermanni, Rozi Plain, Tim Edey and Trembling Bells and playing at some prestigious festivals such as the Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections and Latitude Festival on the BBC Introducing Stage.
IronStar Films have selected 2 of her songs to be played in an independent short movie called ‘Bloodloss’. The movie has received special mentions at independent film festivals in Los Angeles, Calgary, Marbella and Melbourne and Ontario.
In 2015, Lizabett toured Japan and Seoul promoting her debut album ‘Running with the Wolves’ and she was back in Asia in 2016 with another tour promoting her new album ‘The Burning Mountain’ (released April 2016).
