Moving elegantly through jazz, folk, classical and Middle Eastern styles, Lizzie O’Keefe is a dynamic and commanding vocalist. Studying opera, classical and jazz from an early age, Lizzie has developed a completely unique signature style. She has lived and performed in Australia, Indonesia and the UK. During this time she has recorded with the Mitchell and Dewbury Band (Brighton), Jazzanova (Berlin), Razoof (Cologne) and Drumagick (Brazil). Whilst living in Indonesia she formed the duo Paramitsha, releasing a self titled EP in 2013. The project pulled on many strains of world music, from flamenco, Arabic and jazz to folk and classical. Having returned to Australia early 2013, Lizzie is now based in Maleny, QLD and is quickly gaining recognition throughout the upper echelons of the Australian music industry. The release of her debut solo EP Leaden Heart in mid 2014, cast Lizzie into the spotlight with the title track making her a finalist in the jazz category for the 2015 Queensland Music Awards.
