Liv Slingerland

Liv Slingerland is a guitarist and singer/songwriter based in Los Angeles. Having grown up near Salinas, California, playing in rock and roll, punk and blues bands, Slingerland made the move to USC in order to have an increased focus on developing her musicianship and crafting her identity as an artist.

In addition to studying as a guitarist in USC’s Popular Music program, Liv has also taken advantage of Thornton’s faculty and resources by furthering her studies of songwriting, vocals, bass and piano/keyboards.

This summer (2015), Slingerland prepares to release an EP of four original songs. While working towards establishing her own project, Liv continues to play and record with other groups as a multi-instrumentalist, including the Los Angeles-based band Paper Pilots.
