Biography

Liz DeRoche is The Singing Lizard! From her earliest memories of improvising at the piano in a small town just south of Portland, Oregon to seeking musical adventures abroad, the classically trained, techno geekess with a flair for being atypical, has always preferred the not-so-clear path.

Liz started playing the piano at the age of three. While her older brother found it to be a chore, her Mom, a gifted music teacher, couldn't tear Liz away from the piano. As the daughter of a Pastor who also taught theater and choir, she was fortunate to be able to collaborate with countless musicians throughout her life. Liz played the drums in the church band at eight years old, barely able to reach the cymbals but still able to rock out.
In her early teen years she started a band with her brother and since then she has performed in churches, festivals, state fairs, punk clubs and mainstream rock venues across North America and Canada. Liz comfortably inhabits her own sound somewhere between eclectic electronica and cheery soul.

Liz has just released her debut album "AlphaBeat". The album includes fun, original songs as well as the children songs we all know and love infused with a fresh new sound. Liz believes music is the key to true joy and is passionate about creating a fun and interactive live show that both kids and adults enjoy.

Lyrics

Imagination!

Written By: The Singing Lizard

Sometimes, when I’m feeling low,
I know I can use my imagination!
Come on now, imagine with me,
Together we’ll play happily,
When we use our imagination!

Let’s pretend this bed is a boat,
Let’s pretend this chair is a rocket ship,
We can go anywhere we want,
When we use our imagination!

We can fly to the moon,
Set sail on the ocean blue,
We can be anything we want to be,
When we use our imagination!

Clap your hands, sing along with me,
It’s so fun to see, what we want can imagine,
Come on now, imagine with me,
Together we’ll play happily,
When we use our imagination!

Let’s take a ride on my flying horse,
We’re headed to an underwater fort.
Look! A tunnel on the ocean floor,
Now we’re back to my front door,
Hey, there’s a chipmunk waving from a tree,
Want to come to my party?
When we arrive, what do we see?
A chipmunk tea party!

When we use our imagination,
We have so much fun,
Come on, imagine with me, yeah
Come on now, imagine with me,
Together we’ll play happily,
When we use our imagination!

Come on!
We can be anything we want to be, that’s right!
We can do anything we want to do,
When we use our imagination!
We can be anything we want to be, all right!
We can do anything we want to do,
Imagination!

Chipmunk: Oh, I love using my imagination!

The Singing Lizard: So what do you love most about using your imagination?

Chipmunk: Well sometimes, when I’m looking for something fun to do, I use my imagination and then I can do anything I want!

The Singing Lizard: Yeah, that sounds so fun! I love using my imagination too!

Chipmunk: You do?

The Singing Lizard: I do! Would you like to use our imaginations together?

Chipmunk: Ok!

The Singing Lizard: All right! Are you ready?

Chipmunk: Ready!

The Singing Lizard: Here we go…
