LIZZI is a British singer-songwriter. According to the press release, Drawing on a myriad of influences ranging from neo soul peppered with R&B, electronic and jazz, the East London based singer-songwriter and producer, crafts emotive, introspective pop that transpires naturally and organically.

She announced the release of her debut EP titled After Hours which will be out in April. She also shared a new video for the track “Careless“. She says: “Careless is about realising that someone that you are invested in really isn’t serving you. I was with someone who was saying all the right things but their actions didn’t match up. The song was written as things were ending and I was reflecting on it.

Today we share a playlist with 5 influential tracks which had an important role for her music. Check it below after the video.

Fatima – Dang. Fatima stamps her own sounds and this has a really funky vibe. I love every element of thing song.

Budgie – Want 2 love u. I’m heavily inspired by 80s funk soul disco and this track really channels that. This song has a real feel good power ballad feel. It inspired me to make more happy love songs which I tend to shy away from.

Teedra Moses – Be Your Girl. This song is so simple but it just never gets old, I’ve always got to sing along.

Yussef Kamal – Strings of Light. The London jazz scene has really popped off and this track epitomises that for me, I love the progression throughout.”

Erykah Badu – Tyrone. Erica Badu’s frank lyricism and warm, funky feels has been an inspiration for me. There’s so much feeling in her voice it’s powerful.
