What you need to know

Pillow Fite is Halifax, Nova Scotia’s most exciting new musical duo. Pairing tender, heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics with catchy alt-rock instrumentals and folky ballads, the genre lines get blurred in a way that keeps the project dynamic and binge-worthy while giving listeners all of the feels.

Art Ross (they/them) and Aaron Green (he/him) come from disparate backgrounds and musical forms, meeting in the middle to comprise a band that’s tender and fierce, exuberant and gentle.

Green—a veteran of the Halifax rock scene, the guitar anchor of Floodland and Hello Delaware—and Ross—a trans songwriter with an acoustic guitar—started writing songs together over text, by accident. Pillow Fite emerged publicly at the start of 2021 with its non-binary gender-subverting aesthetics already in place and a languid lead single in “Playing the Fool.” Halifax, a town built on and stuck in rock music made by men, responded with supportive fervour, selling out back-to-back shows that saw the duo expand its s

In 2022 she celebrated a brand new, full band, Help Musicians UK supported record – “How Did We Get Here?”. A 16 date tour with the likes of Katriona Gilmore, Jonny Wickham and Ellie McCann presented a jubilant, rich and full sound, but Lizzy’s powerful and emotive voice stole the shows as usual. In short “Lizzy has a dazzling combination of voice and songwriting talent that rarely appears.”

Her sensitively penned songs have been spun on radio stations throughout the UK, across the pond and in Europe; with BBC Cambridgeshire heralding her as “A truly passionate and important voice”.

Her debut album Dusk is “an incredibly strong, top drawer album that packs a punch with every song” available on Spotify and all other good interweb streaming platforms, as well as the EP, Long Story Short.
