“Sweet Lizzy Project” is a Cuban Rock band from Havana, Cuba formed in 2013. The band currently consists of seven members: Lisset Díaz (Lizzy) (lead vocals), Miguel Comas (lead guitar), Angel Luis Millet (drums), Yanet Moreira (cello), Leonardo Delgado (rhythm guitar), Alejandro González (bass) and Wilfredo Gatell (Keyboard).
The group was formed when Lisset Diaz met Miguel Comas and the two collaborated on their unrecorded songs. The success of this first album attracted the attention of other talented musicians and in May of 2013 “Sweet Lizzy Project” was officially formed.
In 2015 the group released their first album, “Heaven” which gained local and international popularity. In 2017, they were invited to perform on PBS's “Havana Time Machine” alongside “The Mavericks” in Havana, Cuba. This gave them the opportunity to forge a relationship with Mavericks lead singer Raul Malo who invited them to Nashville, TN. Thoroughly impressed, Malo granted them a recording contract.
Their latest album “Technicolor” is currently in progress at Blackbird Studios, Nashville TN, mixed by world-renowned sound engineer Niko Bolas and is expected to be released in 2018 on MonoMundo Recordings and Thirty Tigers.
