'You Must Listen To Her'
Growing up with a love for music and wearing out toy microphones, Libby first performed one of her own gospel songs on stage at the age of 11. Writing music and lyrics is as natural to her as singing.
Nominated for Best Female by Premier Gospel Awards and Best UK Act by Pure M Awards, Libby's distinctive voice is powerful and emotionally stirring as it spills out from her core, powerfully articulating a range of life experiences that express faith, hope and love.
Described on Premier Gospel as 'a gospel singing sensation', as a teenager Libby became responsible for leading the music in her Father's church and began to manage a range of musical projects. During her 10 years of serving as Musical & Creative Director Libby was encouraged to develop her distinctive musical style. Directing musical projects for various groups, and performing in a range of venues across the UK & Europe, Libby has accumulated years of experience singing and directing music. This has endowed her with a striking ability to create music and lyrics that entertain, uplift and stir the spirit. Included in her work, Libby has directed two acclaimed Andraé Crouch Tribute Concerts that caught the attention of national media, followed by the release of the Songs of Andraé Crouch (Live Tribute) EP in December 2017.
Passionate about the power of music in bringing people together, Libby was inspired to study a Master's degree in Community Music at the University of York. Her first degree is in Theology. Libby was the first soul & gospel artist in the UK to achieve this combination of degrees.
Libby produced her albums, Where Love Begins released in 2013 to great reviews, and SO GOOD, released in November 2015 which has been described by reviewers as 'a treat'. With her qualifications and years of experience, Libby also teaches in a range of capacities and works designing, developing, and directing arts projects. Libby launched Libberty Arts in 2014. Libby has taught at a wide range of venues including one of the UK's leading producing theatres, York Theatre Royal and has lectured on the MA in Community Music course at the University of York.
Libby acknowledges influences such as renowned gospel artist Andraé Crouch, and The Winans, along with artists such as Donny Hathaway, Gill-Scott Heron, Aretha Franklin, The Isley Brothers, and the more recent Anthony Hamilton.
Libby is an ambassador for Compassion UK, a charity releasing children from poverty.
