Lizzi is a published songwriter and arranger who’s original compositions have been performed by collegiate and professional vocal groups throughout the country and at the JEN (The Jazz Education Network) and ACDA (American Choral Director’s Association) conferences. Her songs have been described as "world class," "sincere and intelligently crafted," and "full of beautiful surprises." She skillfully combines a vibrant and youthful perspective on songwriting while still capturing a mature depth and understanding of the art form.
As a graduate of the University of North Texas’ prestigious jazz program, Lizzi sang with the 3 o’clock Lab Band, Afro-Cuban and Brazilian percussion ensembles, and the award-winning vocal jazz ensemble, The UNT Jazz Singers.

At the age of 18 she was the youngest headliner of KSDS Jazz 88.3 fm’s long running "Jazz Live” show. In the summer of 2014 she performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival and various jazz festivals throughout Japan as the vocalist in the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra.
A product of the San Diego jazz scene and music programs, Lizzi performs with many esteemed local musicians including guitarist Peter Sprague and the inventive vocalist and improviser, Leonard Patton. Through her studies at UNT, she has worked and performed with artists such as vocalists Bobby McFerrin, Kurt Elling, Sara Gazarek, Jo Lawry (Sting), pianists Josh Nelson and Danilo Perez, and the acclaimed vocal groups the Swingle Singers and Groove for Thought.

Please clarify what kind of instrumentation you would prefer so we can talk budgeting. I typically play in a duo setting (with piano or guitar) or a full jazz combo setting (piano/guitar, bass, drums, saxophone/trumpet/trombone, etc.). If you have any other requests for different types of instrumentation, that is totally fine! Just let me know and I would be happy to find something that will fit within your budget.
