I am a British composer whose music has been described as  'spell-binding', 'moving', 'powerful', 'sensitive', 'stunning' and 'brilliantly creative'

My compositions have been performed by some of the world's top musicians in major concert halls and venues throughout the UK and internationally, with commissions encompassing orchestral, choral, ensemble, wind band and brass band genres, as well as being broadcast on BBC One, ITV and BBC Radio 3. In 2021 I was appointed Composer in Association with the Grimethorpe Colliery Band.

I enjoy writing for performers of all abilities, diverse occasions and, more recently, music for brass band and an increasing number of community and outreach projects.​ I love working with melody but sometimes unexpectedly, often underpinned by rich harmonies -perhaps described as broadly tonal with a twist.

I was awarded a PhD in composition in 2010 from Cardiff University. Alongside my freelance work as a composer, I am a Senior Lecturer at the University of the West of England, also Associate Lecturer at the Open University and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London.


"Liz Lane’s Robin Robin is a particular highlight - beautiful"

" the fine composer Liz Lane who’s got such a gift for melody and the sublime euphonium playing is by Steven Mead."

“Great gig… such an inspirational piece of music - so descriptive. The way each part of Innovation mimics the different types of planes is really quite remarkable. Close your eyes and you can visualise each one.”

If any of you are following me but not yet following @lizlanecomposer , please do so! This wonderful lady is a truly talented composer but is also using music for what it should be used for - entertaining but also bringing people together. So much respect for her!
