Artists Worth Checking Out: Liz Menezes

Liz Menezes began singing by the age of ten when she was a part of a choir ensemble at a local church.  She also took up writing at an early age, of which most of her poetry would later translate into music.


According to the website Reverb Nation, it mentioned that she worked with the record label Albatroz Music–first as an independent artist as part of a two year stay in Rio.  Between 2007 and 2013, her star continued upward by winning online competitions and also appearing in magazines such as People Espanol, Boom, and El Barrio Latino Magazines.

In 2014, she released her first album Dejame (translated meaning, “Let Me”) and the following year, the EP Capitulo 2 (“Chapter 2”) was released.  Available also on YouTube and Spotify, these songs bring a cool but upbeat factor.  The CD can be purchased via Digipak.  All five songs sound really nice, but the ones not to miss are Track 2, “Aquella” and Track 5, “Estebas”.

This budding artist has been doing it for a number of years, but my next quartet of Rising Stars are just that.

During the first two weeks of December leading up to Christmas, I will be profiling the new artists that burst onto the Brazilian jazz scene in 2017.

First up, will be Ana Clara and finally, look for a nice feature on Debora Cidrack.

Enjoy the rest of your week, everybody.
