Eliza Doolittle

Placed on the planet to make music, that's exactly what she's been doing since the age of ten. Now, with a whole heap of records under her belt, we think it's probably catch-up time... Writing as a solo singer, Eliza currently works with a full live line-up including bass, drums, keyboards and guitar. Finished tracks combine tatty tinkling on the ivories with sleek programming on the keys, resulting in a slick groove without compromising Eliza's back to basics authenticity.
