Talented contemporary singer/songwriter. Del boys favourite.
Liz Simcock @ Orpington Folk Club 2003
Liz Simcock has been writing songs and performing them in acoustic and folk clubs for the last seven years. In 1999 she featured on the Playpen Album of New Acoustic Music alongside Eliza Carthy, Billy Bragg, Eddi Reader and Kathryn Williams. Rock'n'Reel described her as a "revelation", dubbing her "a (warmer) June Tabor". Promotional tours of Britain and Italy followed. Liz's first album Seven Sisters Road was released in 2001 and features guest artists Dave Ellis (guitar), Jake Walker (viola) and Sarah Barton (cello). A new album is currently in production and will be available in Autumn 2004. When not performing solo Liz is joined by guitarist Warwick Jones and bass player Ian Newman. She counts Richard Thompson, Clive Gregson, Boo Hewerdine and Joni Mitchell amongst her main songwriting rolemodels.


Clive Gregson
"Liz Simcock did a great job opening for me at Hitchin. She has a fine album available so check it out."

Acoustic Routes
"Liz Simcock is one of the finest singer/songwriters around. With a strong, expressive voice and high quality songs her music is fresh, original and very entertaining"

  Hitchin Folk Club
"Liz is a great songwriter and gorgeous singer with a relaxed and very endearing stage presence. We have seen her grow from strength to strength as a performer, and now stand easily alongside any of the female singer/songwriters working on the acoustic/folk music scene"
