Born and bred in East London, Liv’s dedication to a career in music came as a shock to her family who barely knew she could sing. But after a stint at university in Manchester, in which she was immersed in the city’s legendary dance music scene, her internal compass was sent spinning. When it settled, she took note, and from that moment on she was sent in a singular direction – to create music.

Liv’s musical career started off in 2019, working alongside Hackney’s grassroots label Root73 (also home to The Silhouettes Project) with a collaborative hip -hop / neo-soul EP. Then later on that year came the soulful dance track You’re My on Defected’s well known disco label Glitterbox – a balmy, summer day anthem that’s just soared past an impressive four million streams. Fast forward to the present day, where it continues to receive support from house music Dons such as Moodymann & Jayda G. Next came ‘I Miss Having Someone To Talk To’ (2020), another dollop of buoyant grooves that’s elevated by Liv’s distinctly fluid delivery. Produced with Folamour and released on his FHUO label, the track currently sits at over seven million streams.

Liv then released her first solo track Kitchen which landed heavy support from BBC Introducing. Followed by another epic dance collaboration I Need You with hugely successful producer duo KOLIDESCOPES via Defected’s latest imprint, The Remedy Project.

2023 has seen Liv East release singles ‘You Got Me’, ‘So Badly’ and ‘Love Frequency’, which landed support from BBC Radio London, Rinse FM, The Independent, Dummy, Noctis, Vogue France, Earmilk, whilst also landing playlist support from New Music Friday UK. She’s also collaborated with a wealth of artists in recent months, including Fat Freddy’s Drop, Kid Fonque and Yarni. Finishing off the year Liv has released her debut EP ‘LVE1’, which is already making waves across the world of dance, neo-soul and jazz.
