Not to be confused with playwright George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion protagonist, singer-songwriter Eliza Doolittle is having no problem expressing herself.
The 23-year-old singer ― who's also a model and daughter to an English playwright (John Caird) and a recording artist (Frances Rufelle) ― can be added to the list of artists from across the pond who are making their way to the States. Doolittle is following up her recent "Tonight Show" appearance with a performance at Coachella today (April 17).
A fan of a wide range of artists, Doolittle admits that she's not always sure how she comes up with her fun pop tracks, like the 2010 single "Skinny Genes," off her self-titled debut. "Itʼs about a boy whoʼs kind of annoying, but itʼs not a true story, I kind of wish it was though because I never really had a boy to play with. But heʼs a figment of my imagination and the whole word to play with, skinny jeans like denim jeans and then your genetics and personality," Doolittle told GlobalGrind in a recent interview. "Itʼs really fun. Just a fun idea that was made into a song."
