SAHARA recorded two albums, "GOING CRAZY" and "THE SEVENTH HOUSE" (released in Europe and Japan) enjoying substantial sales, radio airplay and garnering widespread critical acclaim with quotes such as " One of the greatest singers in the world “ and “…one of the most powerful voices in all of music, period!” in various music publications. After nearly nine years of existence, July of 1995 brought with it the demise of the band with Diane Arens (one-third of the core writing team of Vandall, Arens and Woodward) leaving the music business entirely. As Liz puts it, "Within the context of SAHARA, Diane was irreplaceable and we found it impossible to go on." And so began a time of deep soul-searching, contemplation and evolution into the next era. After deciding to pursue a solo career, composer/musician/guitarist extraordinaire, ULI JON ROTH (formerly of the SCORPIONS) unexpectantly contacted Liz to record vocals for his upcoming album, "REQUIEM FOR AN ANGEL", thus putting her plans on hold temporarily.
She then went on to tour as vocalist with ULI JON ROTH in 1998 throughout Europe during the G3 Tour with JOE SATRIANI and MICHAEL SCHENKER. The band consisted of music veterans DON AIREY (DEEP PURPLE, OZZY OSBOURNE, RAINBOW, etc.) CLIVE BUNKER (JETHRO TULL) and FRANCOIS GARNY. (A highlight from these shows was the live performance of the introduction to Roth's "Hiroshima Symphony" which can be heard on the album "TRANSCENDENTAL SKY GUITAR" which was released September, 2000 worldwide). She also made guest appearances, performing at the 2002 “LEGENDS OF ROCK TOUR” featuring ULI JON ROTH, JACK BRUCE, GLENN HUGHES and FRANK MARINO and also at the 2004 “ROCK MEETS RENNAISANCE” concert performing with “SKY ORCHESTRA” featuring a performance of one of her own songs and a duet with singer, DORO PESCH.
1997 brought with it yet another major move back to Europe, but this time to the United Kingdom where Liz lived until 2006. She is currently residing in Germany, raising a daughter (born 1998 in the UK) and is writing and recording her songs for a projected solo album, hopefully sometime before she dies.
