At just 19 years of age, multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Lizzy McAvoy stuns audiences with her approachable, charming style, seasoned stage presence, and compelling songs about love and life. A growing chorus of supporters sings her praises, and, in the Music City, industry insiders buzz in anticipation of her forthcoming fall 2010 debut release. Having recently signed a publishing deal with top indie publisher Major Bob Music, Lizzy graduated to an international stage with her own authentic musical blend - organic alternative pop songs tinged with traditional influences like country and folk. When she wasn't cultivating her stage presence in countless performances all over Ohio, Lizzy relentlessly studied music. Inspired by musicians like Elton John, Eva Cassidy, Queen, and Cher, she learned to play a wide array of instruments including guitar, Irish bouzouki, bass, accordion, piano and banjo. In addition to writing her own songs, she learned to record them herself using Pro Tools software. To this day, Lizzy can be heard playing all of the instruments on many of her recordings. In 2007, Lizzy left Ohio to pursue her dreams in Nashville, TN. Within three months of her move, fate put her in front of Mike Doyle at Major Bob Music at a Pitch to Publisher Night in the office of the Nashville Songwriters' Association International. Having received over 50 awards from different performing rights organizations, Major Bob Music is a premier publisher best known for working with Garth Brooks. In April 2009, Lizzy signed with the company, joining a team involved in over 30 gold and platinum certified albums and the sale of over 130 million records. Lizzy's songwriting and performing talents have been recognized on national television. At age thirteen, she was a finalist on the NBC television program America's Most Talented Kid. She penned an original holiday song, "The Best Way to Spend the Holiday," which was featured on The Early Show on CBS. Additionally, Lizzy has already won several awards. She was given the Leon Brettler Award by the ASCAP Foundation. She also received recognition in a variety of contests like the International Songwriting Competition and the NSAI/CMT Song Contest. Despite the praise, Lizzy remains a down-to-Earth midwestern singer-songwriter. Her songs have a natural energy and positive, hopeful lyrics. Her delightful singing voice is both passionate and accurate. She is in the final stages of the recording process for her proper debut album, slated for release in the last quarter of 2010. Also, Lizzy recently hand-selected a band to back her renowned live performances. Her songs have unique charm and broad appeal; people of all ages connect with tunes like "Saturday Night", "You Find Me" and "Rain on My Parade." With the arrival of her new album, fans and supporters have been given the opportunity to watch Lizzy McAvoy's career reach full bloom. Her relentless dedication to music guarantees a future full of creative songs and engaging live performances. Worldwide music fans should keep a watchful eye on upcoming news about this amazing singer-songwriter.
