Born and raised in north London, Eliza Doolittle (a childhood nickname that stuck) has been writing songs since she was 12, and is talented enough to have landed a publishing deal by the time she was 16. A diehard fan of classic pop in all its different guises, from The Beach Boys to Stevie Wonder, it’s perhaps unsurprising that Eliza’s music manages to mine sounds from the ’60’s and 70’s while managing to sound indisputably fresh.
“My music is not a particular genre, says Eliza. “It’s not bubblegum or cheese. It’s just good songs, pop songs. It’s just my songs.”
Currently sitting on the B List at Radio 2 after a nice 3 week stint on the A List, Skinny Genes is continuing to get great radio support at R2 alongside Radio 1 plays and 107 playlists at regional radio and the national press coming on board with great single reviews not to mention great TV appearances on GMTV and that show on Channel 5 with Ian Wright and her off the Apprentice!
The debut album from Eliza Doolittle will be released this summer.
She will be supporting Jamie Cullum this May on his UK tour (she is currently supporting Alphabeat)
