Inspiration is Everywhere18 January 2017 | 8 Minute Listen
Lize Mynhardt’s love for music began at the tender age of six years old when she began playing the piano and acoustic guitar. Today, Lize is 23 years old and is considered an all-round musician due to her ability to play over five instruments as well as sing. In 2014 Lize put her BComm LLB studies at Stellenbosch University on hold when she got the opportunity to compete in Idols, where she was placed second runner up. Dare to Daydream – her debut as a solo singer – was one of the first songs Lize ever wrote, and was recently found by accident as a voice note on an old iPad she had given to her brother. The single was written when Lize was suffering from insomnia, which left her hallucinating, sleep deprived and – above all – inspired. Not to worry, it’s not a depressing song at all; quite the opposite in fact. She joined Sechaba G at the KFM Studios for Movers & Shakers!
