'This is lizzard' was founded in 1998 by American singer/lyricist Lizanne Hennessey and Dutch musician/composer Roland Stolk. Their music is based on pop with all sorts of their favorite genres thrown in; from pop to poetic, country to celtic, rock to reggae.
'When Roland and I met, we found out pretty quickly what is it we do best together: making music. We formed 'This is lizzard' in 1998 and have never stopped making music since. But for lots of reasons, most of them beyond our control, releasing an album just never happened... until now.
Thirteen years later, we are proud and thrilled to announce the release of our debut album, 'Won't Give Up'. The title says it all. We never did give up, and we won't give up when it comes to fulfilling our dreams and sharing our music.
Spread the word, tell your friends, and enjoy: it was a long time coming, but we make time to make music, and This is lizzard Won't Give Up.'
