2010–2013: Eliza Doolittle

In early 2010, she took part in musician Shane MacGowan‘s charity single “I Put a Spell on You“, in aid of the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Her debut single “Skinny Genes” was released on 12 April 2010, reaching No. 22 in the UK Singles Chart. She told BBC‘s Steve Lamacq the song is “a funny scenario if you didn’t like someone, if they were really annoying, but you had a good time under the sheets.” Eliza’s second release “Pack Up” was released on 5 July 2010, reaching No. 5 on the Official UK Singles Chart on 11 July 2010.

In March 2011, she performed at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas as well at Coachella in California. In April 2011, Eliza was touring the UK. On 19 April 2011, Eliza’s self-titled album was released in the United States almost one year from the UK date.

In an interview with Elle magazine in April 2013, she stated “I’m definitely showing more of myself than I ever have before. I feel like on my last album, I hadn’t experienced very much of anything really, and it’s been three years or more since then and I have felt and seen things I hadn’t before, and I know things I didn’t know before. In a way I have answers to questions, but then those answers open up a thousand other questions. I guess I’ve gone through things that so many people go through at the age I am. I’ve written almost every day about my every thought and emotion and the album is made up of the songs that mean the most to me”.
