Lizzie Marvelly Launches First Pop Single

Lizzie Marvelly Launches First Pop Single, Generation Young

After two successful classical crossover albums, Lizzie Marvelly is following her heart and launching her first pop single, Generation Young, released tomorrow (10 January 2014) on iTunes.

Co-written by Marvelly, Stuart Crichton (Delta Goodrem, Sugababes, Stan Walker) and Sinead Burgess (Universal Music Australia/ABC Music Australia), Generation Young is anthemic pop at its best. Hailing a youth revolution, the first single from Lizzie’s forthcoming EP stands for following your dreams and being “the change, not just the crowd.”

While travelling the world collaborating with other artists and writers Marvelly says she realised that it was time for her to finally write and sing the music in her heart.

“After so many years of singing other peoples’ words, I couldn’t ignore the voices in my head anymore. I think as you grow and evolve, your dreams change shape or come more sharply into focus. It can be pretty terrifying to take a step and make a change and the road ahead of me is definitely unknown; but it’s leading me forward to exciting new places and I’m loving every minute of it.”

Kissing classical crossover goodbye, Marvelly has indeed stepped into the unknown as a singer/songwriter. Grammy nominated English music producer, Nick Patrick, whose most recent success includes Sol3 Mio, believes Marvelly will succeed in the world of pop music.

“Lizzie has that rarest of gifts that only great artists have – the ability to reach out and touch your soul.”

International songwriter and producer Stuart Crichton who has worked with Stan Walker, Guy Sebastian, Delta Goodrem and Kylie Minogue, co-wrote Generation Young with Marvelly agrees with Patrick.

“It has been my pleasure to work with Lizzie on two songs for her debut EP. Having 25 years experience working with some of the biggest pop artists, I can say that Lizzie is an amazing talent that New Zealand should be proud of. She's a great writer and has a strong identifiable voice. 
Generation Young is one of my favourite songs that I have co-written in the past while. 
I'm sure it'll be a big hit for Lizzie.” 

It’s hard to believe Marvelly is only 24 years old. Described by the John Key as a ‘national treasure’ her singing talent was discovered by Frankie Stevens and her famous uncle, Sir Howard Morrison, in her early teens. By the age of 16 she was on the road touring, which soon lead to two major international signings, two top-ten albums, two European tours, concerts in Asia and Arabia amongst others, a smash-hit charity single and countlessnational anthems at televised rugby tests.

This isn’t the first time she’s written her own music, she actually wrote her first song at age six, beginning a journey of music discovery throughout her school years. When she fell into the classical crossover genre as a teenager, Marvelly continued to write music, scribbling lyrics on various hotel notepads as she travelled around the world.

“Writing is an amazing, but vulnerable process. As Joni Mitchell so eloquently puts it, ‘part of you pours out of me in these lines from time to time,’.”

Marvelly’s single Generation Young is released tomorrow on iTunes 10 January, 2014. Her third studio album, her writer’s debut, is also expected in 2014.
