Liotia plus support from Ramrock Hi-Fi DJs feat. Jo Wallace and Ashley Beedle
The brilliant electroacoustic duo of singer/songwriter Abigail Hubbard and producer/engineer Matt Smyth, collectively known as Liotia (pronounced Ly – Oh – Sha). Between them, they create a truly enchanting ensemble of original sounds, samples, licks and melodies which fuse electronica, trip hop and jazz influences. Liotia combine Abigail’s haunting vocals and with Matt’s digital soundscapes and drum machine to deliver their original version on the stunning “Blackout” EP. There are also remixes from Ashley Beedle & Darren Morris - the “Africanz On Marz” Vocal Remix and Melodica Dub (melodica courtesy of Dr Rey). Darren was the studio keyboard player for Massive Attack and the elegance of production shines through.

Abigail and Matt began working together while she was at a local music charity where he managed the studio facility. Matt, who also works alongside producer Adrian Sherwood at On U Sound and is Living Colour’s UK/Europe tour engineer, produced Abigail’s debut EP ‘People Watching’ which gained support from Tom Robinson at Radio 6 and was licensed to producer Robert Miles’ Open Lab compilation. This working partnership progressed into the Liotia project with a tighter, polished more cinematic style including a range of acoustic and electronic instruments. The band have been likened to Portishead meets Little Dragon. Other releases from the duo include their debut EP So Close / Yours Tonight in July 2019
Liotia's new signing to Ramrock Records will bring with them the incredible Ramrock Hi-Fi DJs feat. Jo Wallace and Ashley Beedle.
