U.S. pressing of the debut album from the British singer/songwriter. Informed by the stresses of modern city life, teenage aggro, classic Pop, old Soul and the appeal of simple, strong melodies built from clanking percussion and jazzy licks, Eliza's eponymous debut album is bursting at the seams with life and enthusiasm and vigor: just like its creator. On her debut album, Eliza marries breezily beautiful melodies and witty, erudite lyrics with a delightfully off-kilter twist and a knack for a killer hook. The album has been a run away success in the UK where it spent nine weeks in the Top 10, peaking at #3 and already achieving Platinum status. The album has been propelled by 'Pack Up', which spent numerous weeks in the Top 10, peaking at #5 and achieving Gold status.
