Liza Jane Kreiter

Liza Jane Krieter was born and raised in Calgary Alberta. When she was 18, she bought a greyhound ticket, didn’t tell anybody that she was leaving until a week before, and got on a Greyhound bus for Manitoba with two suitcases and her guitar. She lived in Plumas, Neepawa, Brandon, Ninette and now lives on an acreage with her son and fiancé and a wide range of animals, from pigs and chickens, a horse and cattle, five dogs and five cats.

When she was 16 years old, Liza Jane auditioned for Canadian Idol and made it through 2 out of 3 auditions. She absolutely loved the feeling performing gave her and knew she had to continue with it. Three years ago she had the chance to play a few songs with a band from Plumas and then performed at an open mic event in Calgary with some amazing musicians.

Liza Jane’s first show was in Brandon at the Prairie Fire House. This was followed by a few more shows there as well as a variety of small town bars including Miniota, Ninette, Souris, Killarney and many more! Her life has always had music, growing up with Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett, and the good old 70’s that her and her mom would belt out driving in the car. But her favourite part about performing is when the show is done because that is when she gets to talk to the audience and hear stories of certain songs that have memories attached to them for the people listening to them. And for Liza Jane, the stories are the best part of interacting with everyone. And the music is just has a way of bringing everyone together!
