A staple of the NYC music scene, Lizzie Edwards seems to have played with everyone! From fronting the Avant-guard jazz ensemble, “Jumping Salty” (with Morgan Kraft, Wes and Madison Rast), to sharing the stage with James Carter and Delmar Brown, she brings nothing but fierce talent.
With influences ranging from Paul Butterfield to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lizzie has been a guest at many NYC all-star jams at the Bitter End, and has brought the house down as the lead singer of her side project “Lizzie and the Sinners” (with Charles Roth, Jahn Xavier, Chris Schultz, and Tom Shad) covering gospel greats like Mavis Staples, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and Shirley Caesar. Lizzie is a born musician.
From age 4 she was trained as a classical pianist and has taken vocal lessons from the renowned Don Lawrence. Her Dad was a constant on the 60’s rock scene, acting as sideman for Chuck Berry and touring with Martha and The Vandellas and the Dave Clark Five. Her grandmother a classical harpsichordist and her grandfather an opera singer, a love and ability for all music truly courses through her veins.
With Lizzie and the Makers, she has rocked up and down the East Coast. Belting out original, soulful blues/rock tunes evoking The Black Crowes, Bonnie Raitt and a hint of Led Zeppelin (for good measure), as well as an obscure jazz tune here and there.
