Elizabeth Marie Ferreira (born in April 8th 1980, Massachusetts, United States), most known as "Liz Marie" as stage name, is a local American female singer/songwriter of Portuguese descent. She has performed in English and Portuguese.
Initially, Liz comes from a family of professional musicians. To start, her father is very well known as an International Recording Artist, principally in the United States, but also in some regions of Portugal and in Portuguese-speaking countries and areas around the world. This artist is nobody else than Portuguese-American Superstar Entertainer Jorge Ferreira. Then, she is the younger sister of Alison Ferreira Santos, a female vocalist since many years. She also has a younger brother, Jordan Ferreira, well known in the Boston area as a rock artist, member of Progressive/Fusion Rock band ElixirOnMute. The only one who is not artist is her mother, Yvonne Ferreira, working in the local medias and producing in the past some music videos with her star husband.
In 1996, Liz began to play an important function in the continuation of her father’s career, at the young age of 16, writing and composing the 12 songs of her father's album “A Portuguesa é a Mais Linda” (The Portuguese Woman is Most Beautiful). Since, she has written and co-written numerous songs for her father, so becoming the songwriter of a large majority of her father's musical directory.
Liz has a very short active career behind her. She has released one EP only, "Chuva de Beijos" (Rain of Kisses), in 2000, at the age of 20, starting her career as a local Pop/Dance singer this same year. But before that, Liz already had performed with her father on numerous albums and in live concerts as a backing vocalist. She also has teamed up with her sister Alison during the middle of the 90's, when she was a child, both performing and recording Christmas songs.
In 2011, Liz came back in studio to record a song, so she released the famous Willie Nelson's 1961 single "Crazy", also covered by Patsy Cline and LeAnn Rimes, and now by Liz herself. Recorded at her father's home studio "City Limit Track" in Westport, MA, a music video of this song, produced by famous video producer from Fall River, MA Floriano Cabral, was shot and broadcast in YouTube, showing Liz singing during recording sessions.
In 2017, Liz came back to Ferreira's studio City Limit Track and teamed up with her father to record the famous Bee Gees' song "To Love Somebody", covered by numerous artists worldwide. Featuring Jorge Ferreira, the single is released in September.
Nowadays, Liz continues to write songs and to be a backing vocalist, but she also works as secretary and webmaster in Jorge Ferreira's record company, "Portuguese Music World" located in Dartmouth, MA.
