“A night of funky beats and cool jazz with a live twist”

Lizzy Parks (Tru-Thoughts):
Raise The Roof, Lizzy Parks’ debut album on Tru-Thoughts, is a euphoric, original and unforgettable introduction to one of the most talented and distinctive singers of the moment. Deftly produced by Ben ‘Nostalgia 77’ Lamdin and with rich, dramatic orchestration from Riaan Vosloo of the acclaimed Nostalgia 77 Octet, ‘Raise The Roof’ embodies Lizzy’s fresh and modern personal twist on the singer-songwriter tradition, encompassing elements of various styles from retro jazz and boogie soul to ambient experimental music.
The expansive, multi-layered groove of the title track – out as a single on 11th August – has won radio play and support from Laurent Garnier, Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 1) and many other DJs and tastemakers including Snowboy and Pete Isaac (Jelly Jazz). The album is built on stunning live musicianship and sumptuous strings combined with a traditional approach to recording, using vintage instruments and microphones, and Lizzy’s amazing voice full and vibrant at the front of the mix. Lizzy’s distinctive style may be familiar to Nostalgia 77 fans as she and Lamdin have worked together several times over the years; notably their first collaboration was “The Hope Suite” which Lizzy co-wrote and sang, and which was nominated for Track of the Year in Gilles Peterson’s BBC Radio 1 Worldwide Awards.
“Lovely Lovely LOVELY! Will playlist this on the radio. A great release.”
Laurent Garnier
“A work of art – with its dense, panoramic and majestic soundscape”
