Liz DeRoche announced this week that she is moving to the San Francisco Bay Area at the beginning of 2015. A local performer on the children’s music circuit, DeRoche is known as “The Singing Lizard.”  She routinely played Rise and Rhyme at Busboys and Poets, which is a Monday morning music event for kids under 5 years old at the restaurant’s Hyattsville location.

According to The Singing Lizard’s website:

Liz began making music for kids as The Singing Lizard four years ago in Washington, DC, and has since received two grants and won multiple awards including “#1 Party Entertainer in the DC Area” by Nickelodeon’s ParentsConnect. Her latest album for kids has received praise from a growing local and national fan base.

DeRoche told fans that she would be visiting the East Coast often. The performer just made a video for her song “Bicycle,” which will be released at Bloom Bars on Nov. 18.
