It’s been a rapid ascent for Lizzie Hillesdon aka Pixey. Two self-penned SoundCloud tracks have propelled the 21-year-old Wiganer from her bedroom to showcases on Radio 1‘s BBC Introducing playlist.
Effortless effervescent feelgood pop is her game and her opening demo Psychodelic was a sparse cavalcade of twanging guitars and brushed hi-hats aligned to a sung-spoken super-catchy vocal. It’s her most recent demo, Young, which sounds bolder and shows a talent primed for the big stage. The track landed on the Radio 1 introducing playlist and Pixey subsequently signed to new Liverpool label Modern Sky. The performance at Live at Leeds will be her first Leeds show.
