Story

South London artist, songwriter and vocalist Eliza Oakes is carving her name as one of the city’s most exciting young talents.

Having independently released her debut EP ‘An Intuition’ in 2021, she has now secured support from the PRS’ Women Make Music’ Fund 2022. With truth and originality at the forefront in her exploration of her vocal and musical identity, she is set to release her second body of work in 2024.

With influences from Laura Mvula, Yebba, Moses Sumney and Kate Bush to name a few, Eliza presents a unique, expansive and formidable exploration of the voice that blends classic songwriting, improvisation and performance.

Eliza has already received support and critical attention from CLASH and Wonderland Magazine both of which premiered videos for singles ‘Let It Be Known’ (2021) and most recently ‘Heaven In Your Eyes’ (2022), along with radio support from Worldwide FM, Soho Radio, Balamii and Hoxton Radio. Eliza’s live performances have graced stages at iconic venues such as Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, Jazz Cafe, Earth Hackney, Pizza Express Live Soho, KOKO Camden, Omeara and Bricklane Jazz Festival. She has also headlined sold-out shows at St Pancras Old Church, Servant Jazz Quarters, and Bermondsey Social Club in London. Further demonstrating her versatility, Eliza has made vocal appearances alongside Black Country New Road and has recently recorded for artists including ELBOW and Gregory Porter.

In addition, Eliza is an integral part of Idrîsî Ensemble, a music collective that delves into the performance and study of rare, previously unrecorded medieval repertoire by way of music archaeology, medieval literature and postcolonial historiography, spanning from ancient Greek polyphony, Old Roman Chant, Corsican tradition, to Troubadour song from the 4th to 14th centuries.

With sincerity, honesty, and soul, the multi-faceted artist looks set to further develop her reputation as one of the most naturally gifted new voices and musicians in the landscape.

‘She is an artist that exudes remarkable musicality, I have witnessed a high standard of composing prowess and a natural knack for improvisation.’- Femi Tomowo, MOBO Award Nominated Musician (Amy Winehouse, The Roots, Dee Dee Bridgwater, George Benson).
