An exploration of sumptuous pop melodies and guitar amongst earnest, heart-aching lyrics, Liroy is the one-woman creation of Liz Pomeroy, former front woman of Burning Daisy. The Calgary Herald describing her earlier performances as a "sizzling stage presence [with] sultry Shirley Manson voice, Liz has now added guitar to her solo performances.
Originally from Ireland, Liz formed Burning Daisy in 2011, the band ear worming its way onto the [local] music scene with immediate success. Presenting a "Burlesque rock and stage show theatric" that fans came to adore, Burning Daisy's final single, Cuz I Said So, was described as "excellent and anthemic" by music reviewer Mike Bell.
The band was put on hiatus when Liz relocated to Edmonton, Alberta in order to complete a music diploma at Grant MacEwan University. Currently performing as a soloist or with a full band, Pomeroy's journey has defied her musical and live performance boundaries; forging the brooding melancholy Burning Daisy embodied to fresh, light-seeking sounds. In recent years the artist has become a zero-waste living advocate, which as informed her song-writing style and led to the creation of protest lyrics in her latest work. These heavy topics are contrasted by catchy pop melodies; creating a sense of irony and rebelliousness on stage. This is Liroy.
