With the recent release of her own music, Liz Huett made the leap from being in the background to the spotlight. Huett earned a big break singing on Taylor Swift’s 2010 album, Speak Now and toured with the international superstar for four years as her backup singer before leaving to embark on her own artistic endeavor. This set Huett down the path that bore its first fruits with the viral smash of her debut single, “STFU & Hold Me.”
Raised in the Southern California city of Riverside, Huett was adopted as a baby and raised by a family who encouraged her performing ambitions. She began appearing in movies and film as a kid, showing up in the 1998 Kurt Russell film “Soldier” and Bryan Cranston’s 1999 directorial debut, “Last Chance.” The occasional role followed into the mid-2000s, but Huett turned her attention to music around that time, when she moved to Nashville, toured with Swift then signed a publishing deal and got straight to work on her songwriting and artistry.
Huett continues to push for fierce authenticity “even when it hurts,” and her natural ability to weave this kind of magnetic boldness into her music is undeniable. Her music has been spotlighted on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, Spotify’s Fresh Finds, Apple Music’s Pop Deluxe Playlist, Amazon’s Weekly One, Amazon’s Fresh Pop and many more. Adding to an impressive feat of topping Spotify’s Viral 50 USA and Viral 50 Global playlists, Huett has been praised for her catchy, deeply honest narratives by esteemed outlets such as: Time, Billboard, and Refinery29.
A self-declared songwriter first and foremost, she’s penned songs for other acts like like Sara Evans, Jana Kramer, Joshua Radin as well as had songs featured on the hit TV show Nashville.
