Purdue & Bec

March 1, 2017


Will Purdue, the introspective and emotional singer-songwriter and Liza Bec, the alternative multi-instrumentalist, continue their collaboration, showcasing their evolving and exciting new material from their latest releases.

Will’s soulful rasping baritone and Liza’s gorgeously theatrical soprano combine in a truly unique combination of sultry harmonies, with Liza adding both recorder and saxophone to Will’s skilful and sensitive guitar. Together they create a very classic and rarely heard sound, fusing elements of folk storytelling with alternative rock.

The pair have been exploring creativity in the visual side of their work, with Liza releasing a captivating and risqué video for her EP’s title track, Out Of Control. Will is currently recording a double EP which is split between folk and country. This will form the soundtrack to a thought provoking short film addressing LGBT parenthood issues.

2016 saw a UK tour with dates including performances at Celtic Connections, London Blues Festival and Kaya. They have also ventured abroad to Sweden and Denmark, as well as Liza performing with James Holden in Belgium and Italy, with the highlight being Turin Jazz Festival.
