Aboriginal singer-songwriter Lizzie Steadman has an ability to tell a story through her songwriting and empowering vocals. She incorporates soul, folk, blues and country into the music she plays and writes.
Lizzie grew up in a small country town near Tamworth and was introduced to country music by her dad, who always played and sung with the children when they were young.
She taught herself to play guitar and it has become her constant companion on her adventures to date.
This includes being a jillaroo in the Territory, an aged care nurse at Mutitjulu (Uluru), nursing in Tamworth and as a case worker assisting disadvantaged youth.
Lizzie was awarded the Troy Cassar-Daley Indigenous scholarship through Create NSW to attend the CMAA Academy of Country Music in January 2018.
Lizzie attended a songwriters’ retreat at The DAG Sheep Station and was mentored by Luke O’Shea, Shane Nicholson, Aleyce Simmonds, Kevin Bennett, Jeremy Edwards, Jeff Gibson and Brad Butcher.
