Biography

‘This is lizzard’ was founded in 1998 by American singer/lyricist Lizanne Hennessey and Dutch musician/composer Roland Stolk. Their music is based on pop with all sorts of their favorite genres thrown in; from pop to poetic, country to celtic, rock to reggae.

Lizanne says: 
’When Roland and I met, we found out pretty quickly what is it we do best together: making music. We formed ‘This is lizzard’ in 1998 and have never stopped making music since. But for lots of reasons, most of them beyond our control, releasing an album just never happened… until now.

Thirteen years later, we are proud and thrilled to announce the release of our debut album, ‘Won’t Give Up’. The title says it all. We never did give up, and we won’t give up when it comes to fulfilling our dreams and sharing our music.
Spread the word, tell your friends, and enjoy: it was a long time coming, but we make time to make music, and This is lizzard Won’t Give Up.’

A bit about Roland:
Dutch-born musician/composer Roland Stolk graduated with honors from the Rotterdam Conservatory of Music, where he studied piano and vibraphone. He is a multi-instrumentalist and is proficient on piano, keyboard, percussion, drums, vibes and guitar.
During his extensive touring experience throughout the Netherlands with Dutch artists such as Matilda Santing and Julya Lo’ko, Roland began to focus on his studio engineering skills. He now produces albums for local Dutch artists, including the upcoming album ‘Won’t Give Up’, due for release in the Spring of 2011.
