Chatterbox: LIZ LOKRE

Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.

Hi! I’m from Toronto, half Trinidadian half Irish, I spend my days playing music, writing words on paper, and independently managing my career with my creative partner Adrian X. We work mostly out of Toronto but spend a few months of the year in LA… ideally the winter months. 

Where did the new single come from?

This song was created in LA by Jordan Reyes of BASECAMP, and Adrian X (Drake, PartyNextDoor, The Weeknd) and myself. It was our first time meeting Jordan and we were working in the basement of the sony music building in Beverly Hills. Needless to say the vibe was amazing and we worked on the song until 4AM.  

The song is all about intuition, and how feeling it is one thing but having the courage to trust it is another. This song is about the journey towards empowerment and how goof it feels to confidently say ‘Buh Bye’ to anything that was holding me back.  

Is there more content in the pipeline?

The video for Buh Bye is coming soon! It’s like nothing I’ve ever done before. Also lots of new soundwaves in the near future! 

What’s on the horizon for you?

My dream is to create a career for myself that encompasses all of the things I’m passionate about. Along with new music, I’ll be taking a movement I started surrounded my recent single ‘Rise Up!’ into Toronto elementary schools. It’s called the ‘Rise Up Workshop’ and it’s all about encouraging kids to make a difference in their community.
