Eliza Doolittle On World Cafe

With a platinum-selling album in the U.K., Eliza Doolittle is hardly a stranger to success. But at age 22, there is still plenty more to come from the pop songstress. Born to Tony Award-winning actress Frances Ruffelle and playwright John Caird, Doolittle comes from an impressive lineage. But unlike her theater-loving family, she quickly found a home in music and followed that path very early in her career

At 13, she was already co-writing material with producers and traveling to New York to record. Since then, she has developed a sound that maturely nods at classic pop and soul tunes without sounding archaic. Hear Doolittle perform songs from her debut album and chat with host David Dye.
