Called the “Young, Sexy, Sassy Version of Wavy Gravy,” “Ani diFranco on Pep Pills,” and “The Doyenne of Fun Rock,” Liz O is nothing if not a study in contrasts. Whether serving cupcakes in a bar, or setting fire to a pony pinata on a beach, she is equal parts innocent and indecent, rebellious and sweet, soulful and spectacular.
Her songs are a purely original blend of music; colorful stories rooted in rhythmic blues, with a punk, feisty delivery. Liz O’s comedic persona and penchant for themed theatricality have earned her a fun-loving fanbase across the U.S.A. She has headlined at countless venues around the Bay Area, including Cafe du Nord, Brick and Mortar Music Hall, and the New Parish.
Her monthly showcase at 50 Mason Social House produced “The Apocalyptic Pirate Party,” The Apocalyptic Pony Party,” The Drunken Sailor Party,” “Prom,” “Rockocalypse,” “Popocalypse,” and more.
Liz O released her debut album, “Golden Gate 8,” on iTunes on January 24th, 2013. Her cd release party was an epic three hour party bus ride rollicking in a sea of glitter around the streets of San Francisco. It involved line dancing, gigantic rabbits, pinatas, ponies, Britney Spears, fire, and even a visit from the police! But thanks to admirable professionalism on the part of the party bus company, no one was thrown in jail.
Burnt out, she retreated to New England to hibernate on an island and write new music, releasing the acoustic album “The Other Side” in March 2016. Her next vision is to record a 'swampy-tonk electro-pop' album and rollick around the country in a pink van with Boppity Bear, spreading glitter, music, stories, and whimsy. Stay tuned!
