Liz Larin (born Mary Elizabeth Larin) is a Detroit-based singer-songwriter and rock musician who has risen to become one of the most celebrated artists of the Detroit music scene. In 2003, when readers of Jam Rag Magazine voted her #1 out of 80 Detroit acts, Jam Rag featured her on the cover as "Detroit's Goddess of Rock," a title that is now used to describe her at the venues in which she plays. In 2004 she swept the Detroit Music Awards with her album The Story of O-Miz, beating out better known Detroit-area artists such as Eminem, White Stripes and The Funk Brothers. In 2006 she dominated the Detroit Music Awards again with her latest release, Wake Up, Start Dreaming, garnering top awards including "Outstanding Rock Artist/Group," "Outstanding Rock/Pop Recording," "Outstanding Rock/Pop Songwriter," "Outstanding Rock Instrumentalist (guitarist)," and "Outstanding Rock/Pop Vocalist."
Larin is known for her soul-searching lyrics, her eclectic tracks, her award-winning acoustic guitar work, and her powerful and evocative vocals. The Metro Times writes "Although sometimes compared to Alanis Morissette, Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, Liz Phair, Avril Lavigne, PJ Harvey, Liz Larin has style all her own." RockWorld says of Larin, "Her music is in the realm of say, Bonnie Raitt but much, much better."
