Inspired by strong female acts like CHVRCHES and Billie Eilish, Lyzzie is a Toronto-based indie-pop artist with a dark twist. Her songwriting uncovers varying experiences with mental health, and her growth into the person she is today. Music is a powerful tool for healing and her goal is to help as many people as she can feel not as alone in their thoughts.
On her journey to self-discovery and self-love, Lyzzie confronts her pain in “IJWYD” (I Just Want You Dead). “A grown man fell in love with me when I was in high school,” she discloses. “I’ve felt a lot of conflicting emotions surrounding this relationship. I’ve felt disgust and anger but also heartbreak and betrayal. The song is about what I wanted to say to him, but never did at the time. He should know what he did was wrong.”
“IJWYD” is part of her upcoming debut EP. From being on the verge of a mental breakdown and not wanting to tell anyone, to selfish boyfriends, and being taken advantage of, each lyric is authentically her and her story.
