Country Music continually opens the doors of opportunity to new artists.
A young girl to look out for is Eliza Parker from South Australia.
Eliza is capable of singing songs well in advance of her years, including the songs of Slim Dusty and Becky Cole.
What makes Eliza so special?
For her young age, Eliza has a tremendous ability to remember lyrics, she’s a natural who does not spend too much time on rehearsals, and her voice is pitch perfect.
In addition to this, Eliza loves Country Music.
Now a regular performer at Country Music Festivals in SA and Interstate, Eliza is receiving requests by well known artists to appear on stage.
Eliza is now all set to direct her career pathway towards becoming a successful Country Music Artist.

Eliza Wins another Trophy
I’ve been very busy learning my guitar and having singing lessons.
I have been away singing interstate.
In early February I went away with Dad Nana and sang at a Bush Balladeers Show at Wentworth in NSW.
On the way back from that trip we stopped at Wellington and I sang at Dave William's show. Then on the 17th of February I sang at the Munno Para at Gawler Country Music Club show. Then on the 24th of Feb I sang at Kilburn RSL with Midnight Special.
In March I sang at the Talent Quest at the Murrylands Music Festival. I didn’t win any thing but I’ll try harder next time.
Next stop was Murrybridge Country Music Club where I sang a few songs. I also went to the Southern Club where we are also members, and sang three songs as a Walk Up. It’s been a busy time because most nights I have to do my school homework.
Next it was time to pack the car and on our way to Horsham in Victoria for their first Country Music Festival. The weather was great and it was fantastic to meet up with ‘My old mate Slim Connor’. I sang on the Friday and the Saturday and they loved some of my bush ballads. It’s a really good festival I’ll be going back next year... if Dad takes me of course.
Then I sang at the Railway Country Music Club. Doing the show there was Guido Davis, Chooka Williams, and Kristal Collins. I would like to thank Guido for all the nice things he said about me.
Thanks for your support and for buying my badges. It helps with my lessons and travels.
I hope to meet up with you soon.

Thanks for your support!
I’ve had a busy time this year (2009). Loads of busking around Adelaide, and walk-up appearances at various Country Music Clubs. I have also just finished my first CD … ‘Eliza… Uniquely Australian.’
I visited Port Augusta Country Music Festival where I went into the Talent Quest.
I had a great time and won 2nd place in the 12 years and under vocal section.
I performed at a concert held at the Northern Sound System in Elizabeth.
In early June I went to the Riverland Country Music Festival with my dad and grandma. I had a great time singing at two caravan parks and at the Berri club.
I busked in the main street of Barmera .I had an awesome time there at the talent quest and won two trophies. I’m now busy learning some new songs and practicing my guitar.
My next festival will be Mildura. Then in January 2010 I’ll be going to Tamworth for the first time with my Dad.
Thanks from Eliza and Keep it Country!
