Beverley (near Hull) -born musician and writer, Eliza Gregory, lives in London. Fresh from school in York, she migrated south and cut her teeth as a musician (vocals/bass/guitar) in UK DIY hardcore, doom and metal bands, before entering education at Kellogg and Ruskin Colleges, Oxford.
2011-12 saw a step back from full-time music to complete an MA at Goldsmiths College with a focus on poetry. Projects over the past year included writing in collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic Society, curating noise and poetry nights at V22 for This is DIY, work published in the latest (26th) Highgate Poets anthology and releasing a record with Necro Deathmort on Distraction Records. Other vocal sessions have been with one-man-miracle-band Theo, Breakcore overlord, Ladyscraper, noise mongers extraordinaire Sly and the Family Drone plus more.
Eliza has written numerous songs, short stories and poems. She is currently writing various volumes of poetry and EPs, which are to be published/released as part of various multi-disciplinary arts projects in the coming year, including 'Time', published by Lazy Gramophone in May 2013.
