Liz illuminates the dance floor.
Leaving home at the age of 17, Liz knew how to make things happen and commenced her music career.
"My first single State of Amazing was played on MTV Mexico, and my second single Wind Me Up is on MTV Latin America right now."
In other words: her message is around the world.
Breathtaking Liz had some moments for crankbox-music.
What is your current project?
I am currently working on some new songs in the studio with Michael Bradford. I just released a single called I Want More. I Want More is a bit different then my other songs. A little more laid back, and less pop I'd say. Dark Intensity did a remix, and I love that he made it sound more trance. It's not the type of song that people are gravitating to at the moment, but it is my favorite song I have ever written, and I think people will really love it once they feel it like I do.
How did it all start? Do you remember the moment when you have opted to step into the music world? Or was it a, let us say a smooth transition into this?
I have always sang. I guess because my mom was always singing. Singing makes my heart happy, and its a safe place for me. My father was against me singing, and so I actually went to collage to study physical therapy. There are many reasons I didn't finish school, but one was that I wanted to sing, and I wanted to move to Nashville eventually. At that time my friend Tommy Shane Steiner got a record deal with RCA, and introduced me to a voice teacher, she lived in Nashville, and said if I was serious I needed to move. Country music was what I was born around being from Texas, so thats what I was doing back then. Nashville is a fabulous place to meet artists, writers, everyone in the music bizz are easy to find, and get to know. I met some of the greatest people there, and some of the worst. lol! Country music was never really in my heart of hearts. I was a child meant for raves, house music really gets me going! I started experimenting with dance music, and thats how I ended up where I am now! Nothing about the music biz is smooth for anyone! LOL!
Please pick one and tell us why.
Liz Primo is...
a) the perfect choice when it comes to music entertainment.
b) a hard working musician and everyone should have knowledge of her.
c) multi-talented and she loves her fans. No fans - no me.
I would say B. I work very hard. I'm a really hard worker no matter what I do. I'm also pretty humble. I'm not the worst at what I do, and I'm not the best at what I do. But, I loooove what I do, and I always do my best, and I think that is what matters the most. Should everyone know about me... that would be nice! LOL! I think anyone who works hard at what they do and knows struggle wants some kind of recognition. That would be the ultimate reward. And I would say C also, bc there is nothing better then someone singing your song with you while your on stage. And, the sweet twitter and FB messages mean the world to me! Absolutely, no other feeling in the world is so rewarding and it makes all the hard work worth it. Fans are what keep me going!!! I Big Puffy Heart them All!!!!!
Where will you see yourself in 2013?
The Future is wide open!! I'm not really one of those people who write down their goals for the next year. I get really pissed if I set a goal and it isn't reached, so for 2013 I will keep being myself, making great music, hustling, and trying to make all those people in the previous question. Notice me!
We keep an eye on you, Liz. Thank you for taking your time.
