Liz Hopkins has been singing all her life. She grew up the oldest of three with a tough-as-nails school principal single mom and a steady rotation of Motown, jazz, blues, musical theater and soul in her house while doing chores between play practices, dance classes and choir rehearsals. During her high school years she joined forces and started harmonizing with Ian, Eric and Brittany Holljes, and after college those four merged with North Carolina rhythm section Mike McKee and Grant Emerson and all together they became Delta Rae. They are still harmonizing and creating exceptional music today.
As a lead vocalist in Delta Rae, Liz has lived the touring musician life for most of her adulthood. Delta Rae has toured all over the United States and internationally, released six full-length albums, played US music festivals including Bonnaroo, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Austin City Limits, FloydFest, and Lollapalooza, and overseas festivals including HELLO Fest in Mexico, C2C in Scotland, Haldern Pop in Germany, The Great Escape in England and Byron Bay Bluesfest in Australia to name a few. With Delta Rae Liz has performed on national television (Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien, Seth Meyers) and had the honor of meeting (and singing for) Michelle Obama at a DNC rally in Chapel Hill. Delta Rae has headlined their own tours for years and has also shared the stage with Melissa Etheridge, Jamey Johnson, Johnnyswim, Haim, Pat Benatar, Alanis Morissette, The Lumineers, Walk off the Earth, Train and more. After two rounds with labels, Delta Rae set out on their own and became the most funded independent band in the history of Kickstarter. It has been a wild ride and 13 years into full time rock-n-roll, Liz hasn’t slowed down. She remains proud to be part of Delta Rae.
When Liz is not on the road or in the studio with Delta Rae, she is leading her own shows around North Carolina, singing in musical theater productions or teaching voice and piano fundamentals to kids and adults. She is finally starting to write her own songs and preparing to create an album of her own. Her voice is powerful and soft, tender and raucous, and always perfect for the song she’s singing. Her versatility is extraordinary: from crooning standards and jazz to beautifully delivering ballads and pop to belting out rock and country, she’s at home on the stage. In the words of Karen Carpenter.... we've only just begun…
