Liz Lokre (formerly known as Liz Loughrey) is a pop-soul singer/songwriter hailing from Toronto, Canada. Last year, she released her debut single “Rise Up!,” a Caribbean-flavored track which has garnered much acclaim on respected blogs and playlists around the world.
Music is deep in her blood, Liz Lokre has been writing and performing since she was 12. Her father booked live rock music in his native Dublin while her Trinidadian mother travelled the world as an Indian dancer. It was her grandmother who had in fact pioneered a popular pre-Bollywood style of dance. At a young age, Liz started gravitating toward Stevie Wonder, Sade and Alicia Keys. Her vocal coach — who she shared with the Weeknd — recommended her to Adrian X, the guitarist and OVO Festival musical director, who has headed up the live bands for Drake, The Weeknd, PartyNextDoor and more. Drawing on their shared love of R&B, reggae, international pop and elements of what’s become known as the ‘Toronto sound’, together they created the sound of the LZL collective.
