Hi there, I'm Lizzy; an Australian songwriter, music supervisor, composer, creative director and brand stylist.
I know, that sounds like I DO quite a lot but i love that i get to do a multitude different of things with my life. I creatE music, RUN my own business and (in amongst the chaos) studIED / STUDY degrees in LAW AND Communications.
my music has taken me to wonderful places, working with incredibly talented people. people of whom i only ever dreamt of working with. evidently it seems dreams sometimes CAN come to fruition, much to this small town girl's disbelief. I spend most evenings sitting at my piano, scribbling notes onto paper and singing melodies into my phone.
I remember writing my first ever song at 8 years old, it was the best song i've ever written (*definitely not true at all). it opened up a world of escape and catharsis for me that even at a young age i somehow felt in need of.
I've 'yo yo'd' forward and backwards to los angeles quite a few times and gradually learn't to love the city of dreams. It took me quite a while to ingratiate myself in the culture and understand the complex characters that live within the tree lined streets, manic freeways and many trader joes.
I once lived next door to a man who told me that 'if you have a horse in LA, you've made it in life'. strange experiences such as these became somewhat normal and allowed me to appreciate not only how sheltered my childhood was but the bizarre context that la provides for the 'dreamers', 'creators' and 'Uber' drivers - i mean 'Actors' of the world. It's obscure, beautiful in a somewhat broken manner and dynamic - in a way that only a city centered on entertainment could ever be. iT'S All of those things and the place where every beautiful and popular person from your high school (and every other high school all over the world) go to meet, eat kale and talk about how much 'buzz' is surrounding them. I quickly discovered i'm more of an east coast person - too ugly and perhaps too interested in things other than my reflection for the west coast standards.
After completing my degree at 23, I started my OWN company Basic Black Creative. I always wanted to create a company that encompassed the things i was most passionate about, something that would evolve with me and the people i work with along the way.
Basically We style brands and create digital content like websites for boutique and luxury brands. I know, how millenial of me! What can i SAY? (On the inside I'm really just an 80 year old lady who loves to drink tea and watch classic films).
Additionally i sometimes work on score and music supervision for movie and tv projects. I write songs for other artists and just started a project that i'm not telling you about because i feel like i need to put something secretive and annoying in this about section.
I'm also about to begin my masters in global law and media (BECAUSE I'M A GLUTTON FOR PUNISHMENT / A HUGE NERD).
I suppose that's just about everything you need to know. iF THERE'S ANYTHING ELSE, FEEL FREE TO ASK! i'M HONOURED THAT YOU FOUND ME AND GOT TO THE END OF THIS ABOUT SECTION. Whether you've heard one of my songs on Spotify, seen a brand or a website I created or popped over because you found me on youtube or instagram, thank you so much for taking the time out to get to know me a little better! Don't be afraid to say hello! I'd love to hear from you!
Lizzy / Elizabeth
(or almost every other abbreviation of that name to someone in my life)
p.s i'm also painfully sarcastic just in case you didn't pick that up already. And I'M REALLY GREAT AT THE NUTBUSH.
