“The poetic verse with soulful undertones can only be compared to the lyrical prowess of a blue whale, if only they could speak.”
Liotia are an electro acoustic duo combing the songwriting and haunting vocals of Abigail Hubbard with the of beats and soundscapes of producer/engineer Matthew Smyth.
The duo began working together while Abigail was at a local music charity where Matt managed the studio facility. Matt, who works along side producer Adrian Sherwood at On U Sound and is Living Colour’s UK/Europe tour engineer, was impressed by her unique songwriting style and produced her debut EP, People Watching. This gained support from Tom Robinson at Radio 6 and was licensed to producer Robert Miles’ OpenLab compilation.
The working partnership progressed into the Liotia project with a tighter, polished more cinematic style including a range of acoustic and electronic instruments. The band have been likened to Portishead meets Little Dragon
The duo released their debut EP So Close / Yours Tonight in July 2019 and are set to release ‘Blackout’ with Ramrock Red, featuring remixes from Ashley Beedle’s African’s from Mars moniker and video by Swedish director Helga Fannon
