Emerging Country artist Lizzie Sider will be honored as a HateBraker Hero at the second annual HateBraker Heroes Awards on Monday, May 19, at the Hilton Frontenac in St. Louis, Missouri. As the evening’s featured entertainer, Sider will perform “Butterfly,” which she co-wrote about her own experiences of being teased, ridiculed and excluded by other children and how she overcame the pain.

The 15-year-old performer is being honored for her work in helping others to transcend the horrors of being bullied, and for her own moral courage to have become a leader and a role model, in the quest to raise awareness of, and to help stop bullying. In her efforts to promote bullying prevention, Sider has toured schools in California and Florida to present assemblies in which she shares her own personal stories of teasing with students. It is during these assemblies that Lizzie imparts her message that above all else, “Nobody has the power to ruin your day!” Starting April 9, the tour continued into Texas schools. By the end of the 2013-2014 school year, she will have met with nearly 100,000 students.

“Lizzie mustered the courage to rise above bullying and tell her story to the world,” said Susan Balk, Founding Director, HateBrakers. “Whenever a roomful of children hear her sing ‘Butterfly,’ about how she stopped hiding and learned to fly, they understand that they can do it too. She’s a powerhouse of healing, and she’s not even old enough to drive!”

HateBrakers, a division of the non-profit New Conscience, Inc., promotes the leadership and heroism of individuals who aid in “Hitting the Brakes on Hate” to help others recover from violence, bullying, racism, revenge, scapegoating and other aggressive acts. In 2013, Peter Yarrow of the legendary music trio Peter, Paul and Mary was honored as a HateBraker Hero. To learn more about HateBrakers, visit http://www.hatebrakers.org/.

Sider, who splits her time between Boca Raton, Florida and Nashville, Tennessee, will perform at CMA Music Festival on Friday, June 7, at 1 PM on the Chevy Roadhouse Stage.

Country Radio Spreads their Wings for Teen Songstress Lizzie Sider’s Debut Hit Butterfly (Music News Nashville)

Country Radio Spreads their Wings for Teen Songstress Lizzie Sider’s Debut Hit Butterfly

Music News Nashville

Fourteen-year-old, country-pop singer / songwriter Lizzie Sider is hard at work visiting radio stations in support of her smashing, autobiographical debut, Butterfly.

While balancing high school classes, homework and extra curriculum activities, this multi-talented artist finds the time to focus on her career by visiting radio stations, writing new songs, performing at various venues and working in the studio on her full-length, upcoming album which will be released later this year.

Critics and fans alike are giving Butterfly rave reviews as it climbs the Music Row charts, praising Lizzie for her luminescent lyrics and infectious spirit.

“Wildly upbeat and catchy as all get out. The pulsing production rings with repeated guitar riffs and notes of steel. She sings with confidence and volume, riding atop the sonic excitement like a pro.” –  Music Row’s Robert K Oermann.

Penned by Lizzie and 2x #1 singer/songwriter Jamie O’Neal, Jimmy Murphy and Lisa Drew (There Is No Arizona), Butterfly is a track that parallels Lizzie’s current journey to country music as songwriting served as her escape from being teased and humiliated in elementary school. The video is also currently in rotation on TCN (The Country Network) and is available on CMT.com and GACTV.com.

Proving that she can find a home among a variety of audiences, this Sunshine State native is performing around the states at malls, rodeos, corporate conventions, charities, hospitals, county fairs and has even headlined showcases during NYC fashion week. She has also hosted two episodes of Breaking Out, TCN’s show highlighting up-and-coming country artists.

Kicking off the New Year, Lizzie has been selected by CMA as one of the “Artists to Watch” in 2013 and will be featured in their February/March issue of CMA Close Up. Her forthcoming debut album is produced by Joe Vulpis (Lady Gaga) and is being mastered by Tom Coyne (Red-Taylor Swift).
