This is her official bio from lizhuett.com:
Liz Huett grew up in Riverside, California, with her ear glued to the radio, listening to everything from pop acts like Tom Petty and Pink, to ’90s country superstars. Not long after she decided to move to Nashville to pursue her music career, she was hired as a backing vocalist for Taylor Swift, with whom she toured for three and a half years. With Swift’s blessing, she decided to come off the road and throw herself into writing her own music. Huett quickly lined up a publishing deal with Warner Chappell, began writing songs, and worked on developing her eclectic pop sound. Now signed to Interscope Records, Huett delivers her songs with a genuine vulnerability that makes her work appealingly relatable. Her sly lyrics go down smooth thanks to her intimate vocals and bright melodies
She met Taylor Swift as the last fan in line at a local festival. She wanted Taylor to hear her sing. They spoke and Taylor gave her some pointers. They also met again when Liz was working on a radio station. Then Liz was part of a reality show called Dance Wars. Taylor came on the show as a performer. They kept meeting every now and then. Finally, Liz auditioned to be Tay’s back up singer for what was to be the Fearless Tour and the rest is history.
Liz’s background vocals are featured on Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now” album. Liz can be heard on the songs: Speak Now, Mean, and Superman (Found on the Target Bonus CD). Liz also appears in Taylor Swift’s “Red” album.
The beautiful and talented Liz is signed to Interscope Records.
