About Liz Swain

Liz Swain is an internationally recognised solo and choral vocalist and choral director, rapidly becoming a mainstay of the UK’s burgeoning choral scene.

Originally a saxophonist with a history degree and ambitions in archaeology, Liz started singing in 2000 at a student jam session. From then on she was hooked, and went on to graduate with a MMus from the Guildhall’s renowned Jazz Department as a vocalist in 2003.
