Born in Detroit in the late 80’s, Lizzo spent much of her formative years in the church, where she was raised on the gospel music there along with more mainstream artists such as Stevie WOnder and Elton John.
At the age of 10 her family moved to Houston, Texas and Lizzo was exposed to a wide array of emerging Southern musical styles, from the trademark chopped and screwed rap tracks of the underground, to the progressive and polished RnB sounds of groups like Destiny’s Child that were raising the city’s national profile to new heights.
In fact, it was after she stumbled across a Destiny’s Child performance at Wal-Mart that Lizzo, then a 5th grader, was inspired to start writing music on her own. Over the next decade that decision would take her through the trenches of some of the most varied musical genres: RnB girl groups, progressive rock bands, solo rap ventures, and electro-pop duos.
In 2011 she made the move to Minneapolis with Larva Ink in order to be a part of that city’s blossoming and collaborative musical community. Since then, the hugely varied range of music she grew up around has played a significant part in helping her create the music she does today.
