Liam Lis Interview chasing cars snow patrol cover

On getting into music…

I started playing the drums as a little kid and then around 5 started the piano. I would sit at my piano for hours trying to write and sing my songs.

On covering "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol…

I am inspired by incredible melodies and this song is so beautiful melodically. I think this song appeals to me and so many people as we can all relate to having or wanting someone beside us going through life through good times and sad times.

On what's next…

I am working on my EP. I am writing a lot and also having the opportunity to record other incredible songwriters' songs.

Last words…

I'm really excited to release my first single soon! Make sure to follow me on social media to stay updated about everything!
