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.

You can see Pixey perform at Nation of Shopkeepers: 14:00.
