Russo is ready to rock with a new single and concert tour

Russo is ready to rock with a new single and concert tour

Lizabett Russo is one of the new generation of singer-songwriters who don't rely on other people to promote their work.

Instead, they self-release their singles, organise their own concert schedules and concentrate on what they enjoy best.

The youngster has a soupcon of Joni Mitchell and a sprinkling of Ellie Goulding in her vocal style.

But, befitting somebody who travelled a lot before settling in Aberdeen, she has merged a whole melting pot of different strands into a compelling mix.

The results can be heard on her new single Forgiven.

And she has worked in the last few months to put together a full Scottish tour.

As she told STV: "The single is a slightly different approach to music.

"We had fun making it and experimenting with the sound in the studio.

"I managed to arrange the tour through endless phone calls and chasing promoters up in order to put all the dates nicely together.

"At the end of it, I can clearly say this is some serious, hard work.

"Since we live in 'interesting times', I feel that the only way to do a good job is to do it all on your own to get somewhere.

"That's what people would probably call a self-made musician. However, I am happy that it all came together nicely.

Russo has a refreshing attitude to her music. There is no desire to leap on any bandwagons or appear on reality TV shows to embrace the limelight.

On the contrary, she seems to prefer gradually building her audience and writing material which she knows will appeal to them.

It perhaps doesn't bring any overnight success, but it guarantees staying power.

And the youngster's sights are set on further afield than merely Scotland.

She said: "I am really looking forward to going to all these different places.

"I have a lot of songs now and I hope I can keep working in this way."

Russo added: "I can only feel myself when I travel and play my music.

"I have also lined up gigs in Barcelona in July and in Bucharest and Brasov [in Romania] in August.

"So I am looking forward to all these adventures and quality time."

Lizabett is proof that you can climb up the ladder one rung at a time.

She appears perfectly happy with being patient. And paying her dues.

Further information about her upcoming tour dates around Aberdeem, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow is available here.
