Lizzy Mack is known as one of the UK's funkiest divas, a name given to her due to her powerhouse performing. Singing and music were always her vocation and she has worked on a professional standing since around the age of 10 and became confident delivering her persona from then on.
Lizzy is from a performing background with her mother being a principal dancer in many London theatre shows as well as running her own dance school in bonny Scotland. Her father was an accomplished professional musician.
At the age of sixteen Lizzy attained a number of music qualifications which helped lead to her first record deal at 19 years of age with MCA Records.
Amongst other engagements, Lizzy has performed with the Searchers across the Middle East, she and her band were chosen to perform at the opening variety show at Sheffield's new Lyceum with the late Bob Monkhouse. Lizzy appeared at Kylie Minogue's birthday bash and supported Peter Andre on one of his tours.
After joining the British Voice Association (BVA), Liz participated in a number of courses and workshops with various throat specialists and eminent vocal coaches, which included Kim Chandler (one of the uk's most eminent vocal coaches), Jono McNeil (vocal coach with BBC's 'The Voice') and Richard Lissemore (vocal coach for Glee, USA).
This is an on-going concern as Liz attends at least 2 courses a year to keep up to date with current techniques and disciplines.
Courses attended include:
- Voice in the Brain (neurological study of how the brain connects to the singing voice, Great Portland Street, London)
- Choice for Voice (throat specialists from around the world congregate to discuss various findings at the Royal College of Music, London)
- Rock and Pop Day (with Kim Chandler and Dane Chalfin in London)
- Weak and Wobbly Voice in the Workplace (with Liz McNaughton who is a specialist in the speech and singing voice)
- Advanced Vocal Workshop for Singing Teachers and Singers, Blue Studios, Manchester
- Accent Breathing Method Course, Royal College, London
