                                   Biography

 

Scotland-based singer-songwriter Lizabett Russo merges her native Romanian traditions with elements of contemporary jazz, avant garde folk and world music, a range of influence effortlessly spanned by her powerfully versatile voice. 

 

Lizabett has released four albums to date and toured extensively in Europe, Canada and Asia. Her presence in UK led to supporting acclaimed musicians such as Rachel Sermanni, LAU, Rozi Plain, Tim Edey and Trembling Bells and playing at some prestigious festivals such as the Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections and Latitude Festival (BBC Introducing Stage). Lizabett has been nominated for the SAMA Awards 2019 (Best Acoustic Act). 

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.

Lizabett has recently worked on the soundtrack for the documentary film 'Iorram' with Aidan O'Rourke, Graeme Stephen, Tom Gibbs and others which was released in March 2021 (https://iorramfilm.com/trailer). She also appeared and performed in George Ezra's upcoming documentary 'End to end' (2023).

"We are all lost souls in search of ourselves. This thought might makes us more forgiving towards each other and ourselves”, she said.

"Valley to valley, sea to sea

We are all the same water

 But with a different frequency”.

She sang to the sea, she sang to the wind, she sang to herself, she sang to find her way back home.

"This is simply world-class work, by any standard" 

Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6

"Wonderfully haunting" Late Night Junction, BBC Radio 3

 

On a different note, she makes soap and glass beaded earrings to sell as merchandise.
