Liam Lis knows what’s hot. He should know, he’s been busting up the charts! This past August Liam was signed to Lava Records by Jason Flom (Katy Perry, Lorde) at the age of twelve after only one music showcase and a handful of meetings!
In addition, Liam has top managers Irving Azoff (Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani) and Amy Thompson (Swedish House Mafia) on his team.
So how was he discovered? He started posting YouTube covers of his favorite artists which have reached an insane level of popularity including a cover of Leona Lewis’ “Better In Time” has over 2.5 million views and a cover of Michael Jackson’s “She’s Out Of My Life” with over 40k views and counting!
He has opened up for X Factor starlets Fifth Harmony, Disney star Zendaya, and many other teen acts and is currently in studio working on his EP and putting finishing touches on his new single, “First Kiss.” He also just posted his first webisode, watch above!
