LIZZY LATIMER IN LOOT & RIOT MAGAZINE
Ink Tone Swep
Songstress Lizzy Latimer makes music for this reason – her life is an open book sung like cinema scores while listeners visualize the movie she’s living. “I wrote this song about scenarios I have seen many times,” begins Lizzy, sharing the non-fiction inspiration for her latest single, Can’t Cage Me. “In the cases I’ve seen, the woman’s ambition and drive is what their boyfriend or husband was drawn to,” she continues. “But after some time, they keep pressuring them to basically just be a house wife.” Featuring a verse from rapper Kyah Baby, Can’t Cage Me is a hip-pop merger made for radio.
In addition to her songwriting and vocal abilities, Lizzy is also a multi-instrumentalist with a Bachelor’s degree in Commercial Music and Production. The Sydney, Australia native has been playing the violin since age three and began seriously pursuing a career in music in her teens. Real life and creating music is what she knows, so every note she emotes is like another scene from her ongoing reality show. “Sometimes it’s the element that most attracts a partner to you, that in the end, the partner can’t handle,” Lizzy says matter-of-factly. “You can’t clip the wings of your partner in order to make them stay,” she continues. “Rather, you can improve yourself so they’ll never want to leave.”
