Liz DeRoche (aka The Singing Lizard) started playing piano and drums when she was just four years old. Growing up in the green valleys of Western Oregon, she drew her inspiration from nature and the simple joys of small-town living. As a child, she was surrounded by a tremendous amount of music. Her dad was a theater director and her mom was a music teacher. Someone was always creating harmonious music in the house. As a boundary-pushing teenager, Liz began to contemplate the most exciting life she could live.
Her intrinsic inquisitiveness led to seeking musical adventures abroad, back-packing throughout Europe and South America. She encountered music as diverse as the people she met. Music was a way of connecting with one another and she saw how empowering it was especially when interacting with young people. When she returned, she focused on working with kids and teenagers as a music teacher and mentor for non-profit and community organizations.
In 2010, Liz followed her dream of working as a full-time musician. She founded her own independent record label (AlphaBeat Records) to promote the release of family friendly music and began performing as The Singing Lizard, a nickname she acquired as a kid. With the creation of Electro-Kindie, Liz is one of the first artists to combine original and traditional children's music with electronic, pop, and dance genres. Her live shows are interactive, high energy and entertaining. Just watch all the kids line up for a hug from The Singing Lizard after a performance and you will truly understand the connection she creates with her audience. Adults make up some of Liz's most loyal fans, thrilled that she has inspired their children by gently encouraging the shy and channeling the exuberant to imagine, dance, and learn.
