Liz Primo: ‘State of Amazing’ (First Listen)
Coming from a home where rock and roll was prohibited, Liz Primo was only able to learn about pop culture while visiting friends. At their homes, she listened and danced to the likes of Elvis, Michael Jackson, and MTV music videos.
After graduating from high school in Austin, Texas, Liz left home. With a job and a dream, she saved enough money to move to Nashville, where the music scene gave her the opportunity to meet a network of creative people.
She also met many ‘industry experts’ who offered to help Liz develop her sound. Although excited to have professional guidance, she was constantly steered toward Americana material. Liz soon found herself making music that didn’t resonate with her as an artist.
Soon after, Liz got an offer to join a band back in her hometown. The Ghost Band, as their lead vocalist. They performed around town on Austin’s famed 6th Street, the heart of Austin’s live entertainment district. They played every kind of gig imaginable, including biker parties, and eventually landed a spot at the annual SXSW music conference. While Liz enjoyed performing and the band was achieving some local success, she found herself once again not connecting with the music. Liz knew she was still on a quest to find what the right artistic fit, so her journey continued.
Liz returned to Los Angeles to take one more crack at the music scene there. She ended up connecting with songwriter/producer Rob Fusari (State of Amazing‘ was born., Jessica Simpson) and producer Justin Trugman (Pussy Cat Dolls, Eminem). From that collaboration, ‘
When talent, raw creative energy and drive come together in one package, you know that you have the recipe for a star to happen. Liz is on that road to greatness.”
- Rob Fusari
Soon Liz connected with Phlex, a choreographer who has staged live shows for, Lady Gaga, , and ‘So You Think You Can Dance.’ While Liz had never studied dance, working with Phlex awakened a passion and energy that confirmed this was the kind of music she wanted to write, record and perform.
