The best kept secret in music



"To call Vandall anything less than a vocal leviathan would be an understatement. She possesses a vocal range that encompasses everything from the melodically euphonious to the raw and gritty." - Music Connection Magazine


"Liz Vandall has one of the most powerful voices in all of music, period!...One of the GREATEST singers in the world!!! - The Michael Anthony Show


"the beautiful singer with the golden throat" - Metal Maidens Magazine


"...has a superb voice and can belt out the rockers with force and vehemence and in turn deliver a melting ballad." - Rock City News


"There is a difference between a voice and a Voice. A voice can be heard in almost any bar or club any night of the's sound does not hold listeners in breathless anticipation of the next note to emerge from the singer's lips. In contrast, a Voice demands to be listened to. It's power and sweet purity can cut through the stale air of a club in seconds, the way a lightening bolt cleanses the atmosphere...Voices are possessed by a rare this list may now be added the name of one Liz Vandall...fantastic power and range...dynamic stage presence..." - Screamer Magazine


"For vocals Uli used the talents of Liz Vandall, who has the most amazing voice I think I have ever heard live... certainly puts Klaus to shame on the classic 'Sails of Charon', and makes the out-of-date sentiments (or maybe not so out of date given recent events in Asia) of 'Hiroshima' come alive." - Dave Wood (

"a rare and exciting talent" - Boulevard Magazine

Feeling a bit camera shy


"At nine months old, she started talking and has never shut up since" Inger Vandall (mother)

Born in Stockholm, Sweden, Elisabeth Ljungqvist emmigrated to the United States when she was just three years old with her mother and new American husband, Richard Vandall and thus became Elizabeth Vandall.

Raised and schooled in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, she forewent the norm of activities for most school-age children, instead choosing to devote most of her time to singing. Joining the Davisville Junior High School Chorus resulted in a trophy for "Most Outstanding" at the age of 14. "From the moment I saw Cher on the Sonny & Cher television show, my future instantly became crystal clear for me and I knew what I was here to do."

In 1983, Los Angeles beckoned its finger introducing Liz to both professional vocal training by notable coaches Seth Riggs and Marjory Taylor and various local bands with the culmination of settling down finally in SAHARA, a five-piece semi-progressive heavy rock band. SAHARA recorded two albums, "GOING CRAZY" and "THE SEVENTH HOUSE" (released in Europe and Japan) enjoying substantial sales, radio airplay and garnering widespread critical acclaim including being named "A New Horizon in Music", "Album of the Month", "Over the Top" and obtaining ratings such as "10X Dynamite", "15" (out of 15 points) and "5*"(out of 5) in various music publications.

After nearly nine years of existence, July of 1995 brought with it the demise of the band with Diane Arens (one-third of the core writing team of Vandall, Arens and Woodward) leaving the music business entirely. As Liz puts it, "Within the context of SAHARA, Diane was irreplaceable and we found it impossible to go on." And so began a time of deep soul-searching, contemplation and evolution into the next era.

Ironically, Arens indirectly became the bridging point to this next phase, the introduction to composer/musician/guitarist extraordinaire, ULI JON ROTH.

Although none of the band had ever met him at this point and Arens and Woodward frequently sited Roth as a musical influence, Aren's two brothers, Anthony and John Kornarens had been long-time friends of him. During the recording of "Aquarius" (a stunning remake of the song from the 60's rock musical, HAIR on SAHARA's second album, "THE SEVENTH HOUSE", Anthony obtained permission from Roth for Woodward to play the legendary "Sky Guitar" (one of only five in existence) and consequently played him the track upon completion of the album. "Everything happened so fast, it was amazing, the next thing I knew it, I was on a plane to Uli's studio to record vocals for his next album, "REQUIEM FOR AN ANGEL".

Vandall then went on to tour as vocalist with ULI JON ROTH in 1998 throughout Europe during the G3 Tour with JOE SATRIANI and MICHAEL SCHENKER. A highlight from these shows was the performance of the introduction to Roth's "Hiroshima Symphony". This live vocal performance can be heard on the album "TRANSCENDENTAL SKY GUITAR" which was released September, 2000 worldwide.

Since 1997, a year that brought with it yet another major move back to Europe, but this time to the United Kingdom, Liz has been residing, re-evaluating, writing songs and preparing for the next phase which we all patiently await.
