Liz Horsman is a songwriter, composer, engineer and producer, known for her work with Gabrielle Aplin, Rudimental, Emeli Sande, Rizzle Kicks, JP Cooper and Tom Walker. 

Liz signed with legendary Brit Pop label Food in 1999, releasing her debut album “Heavy High” followed by “Roaming” both to critical acclaim. But the studio was her spiritual home and so she turned her attention to producing and writing for other artists.

In 2009 Liz and husband Mike Spencer bought an old dairy farm in Buckinghamshire, UK, and converted it into the now legendary Lark’s Tongue Studio. Together they worked with some of the biggest artists of the teens – Rudimental, John Newman, Rizzle Kicks, Emeli Sandé among many others.

Then in 2015 Liz and Mike started Youthemic Publishing, partnering Peer Music and signing their long time collaborator Gabrielle Aplin.

As a songwriter Liz has partnered Gabrielle Aplin many times, co-writing and co-producing her 2016 redefining single, “Miss You” and it’s B-side “Night Bus”. 2021 saw Liz, Mike and Gabrielle working at The Lark’s Tongue together on Gabrielle’s 4th studio album.

As a composer Liz has worked on a variety of TV and film projects. Most recently Liz finished writing and producing the two end credit songs for the animated film “The Amazing Maurice”, staring Hugh Laurie and Emilia Clarke.


“The composer, songwriter and producer loved working with Gabrielle Aplin, listening to Sam Fender, Usna and Little Simz, and watching the sun come up.”

“Right now is all that matters. If you spend any time worrying about yesterday or tomorrow then you are wasting precious life minutes.”


“I realize that I am also still learning and I love that. I don’t feel I need to prove myself and that’s very liberating.”
