Lizzie Marvelly's writer's debut EP has gone to number 14 on the official New Zealand album charts in its first week of release. This is Marvelly's third top 15 release, which also comes in at number four on the official New Zealand local album charts, a massive result for an independent release.

The accolades continue for Marvelly who was announced as a semi-finalist in the international Unsigned Only competition on Friday.

This week sees her on the road taking her new EP home to perform showcases around the Bay of Plenty for her fans. Marvelly says that she is rapt with how things are evolving with her new music direction.

"To have three top fifteen albums kind of blows my mind, I'm stoked. The announcement about the Unsigned Only competition was completely unexpected, I’m totally stunned. I can't wait to finally be able to share my new music with some of my most loyal fans, my home crowd in Rotorua and around the Bay of Plenty."

Music journos have also been singing Marvelly’s praises:

"Marvelly’s voice is powerful, sits in the right place and sounds perfect for this type of pop music." Andrew B. White, The Corner (thecorner.co.nz)

"Generation Young has all the hallmarks of a pop hit. There is the slow build up to the soaring catchy-as-hell chorus, the empowering lyrics, and of course, flawless vocals from one of New Zealand's purest voices."

Paula Yeoman, NZ Herald on Sunday

"She is clear and strong and her vocal abilities are amazing… There is no denying that Marvelly is extremely talented."

Kristin Macfarlane, APN

"She can certainly sing. The songs are strong … For a first step in a radical change it’s a good thing. Lizzie Marvelly is not going away. And I find her inspirational."

Andrew Dickens, The Hobson

The video for the title track Collisions is due out this weekend.
