Cross genre music making has always been at the core of flautist Eliza Marshall’s creative world, with a particular love of the music of Scotland and Africa, Steve Reich and Paul Simon. Weaving layers of rhythms, percussion and electronics, spoken word and guitars – as well as her huge array of flutes, whistles and bansuris. Eliza springs forth solo, from two decades of numerous collaborations, with the support of PRS Women Make Music and Arts Council England.
A catalyst for positive change, Eliza’s music is inspired by nature and driven by a profound desire for human connection and compassion. Her compositions call for accumulative positive action and an understanding of our shared humanity.
Eliza has performed and collaborated with some of the world’s most renowned musicians, such as Peter Gabriel and The Who, gracing prestigious stages including Wembley Stadium and Red Rocks Amphitheater. She has recorded with artists from Stevie Wonder to Sam Smith; soloed with the BBC Concert Orchestra, at The Royal Opera Houses in London, Hamburg and Brisbane, on blockbuster Hollywood movie scores (The Great Gatsby, Robin Hood, Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3) whilst also recording and touring with her own award-winning folk band Ranagri. She is artistic director and producer of the pioneering multi-media-project Freedom To Roam – garnering 5* reviews from Morning Star, 4* from Songlines and standing ovations around the UK.
2024 will see the release of Eliza’s debut solo album and tour.
