Patrick Kielty tour dates
Taking her name from the My Fair Lady character, Eliza is the back-to-basics singer-songwriter of soulful pop music whose antics are making a stark impression on the UK music scene. She's been making music since the age of 10, growing up listening to old Motown, hip-hop and pop music to become the embodiment of the modern-day diva. Scoring top 40 singles in 2010 with 'Skinny Genes' and the no.5 hit 'Pack Up', she returns in 2013 with 'Big When I Was A Little', a reminisce song of music, culture and fads she lived through in her childhood, including the cassette single (which the song is being released on!).
