    All the info I can find on her says her records were released by a French record company ,"Palladium" is actually about a French Pigalle nightclub but maybe she was Québecoise from origin... :)

    A french guy contacted me a while ago saying he was a friend of hers and was trying to help her find a copy of a Scopitone she'd made.

    He wrote:"Liz is still performing in South Florida and is now 65 years old.She now is known as Lisa Brady. "Comme tu es jeune" was the name of the song (Scopitone)."

    I have this record pictured in the middle: http://www.lisabrady.com/
    The seller told me it was her first group, and they are from Quebec. I was never even sure if it was her, as she's listed as Liza Gautier. This woman sure has a lot of names!

    Hi Christine,found some more info,Les Scarabées were a Québec group (originally the 2 sisters were born in Egypt!).The 2 sisters arrived in Canada in 1968.This group existed well into the 70's.Liza later moved to Florida.Now the question is are Liz Brady and Liza Gautier/Brady the same person?And the answer is YES! :) Seems Liza (as Brady) had a solo carreer in France before Les Scarabées.

    Good work! Did you find this info online? I'd like to read it if you have a link.
    I wasn't sure she was Liza Gautier until I saw that album cover on her website (and thanks to Spike, knew that Lisa Brady is her). I once saw a recent pic of her holding up the Scarabees' album... can't find it now though. I don't know if you saw this pic of them on my blog.

    For everyone's clarification - Liz Brady is the chanteuse you all know and love. She is not a writer nor is she an artist/painter.

    Does anyone have her EP called Rien N'est Perdu? She wants it.

    Hello. I know this is a 2 year old page, but I was wondering if somebody had a contact address to Liz Brady. I am looking for someone she can tell me where to find: Margaret Anne. Would you please send your answer to cmizrahi1@yahoo.com ? Thanks

    Hello!! Who's looking for M-A?

    Liz Brady is her stage name, it was later changed to Liza Brady. Gautier is not her name, it was her partner's (not her sister)name in the duo: "Les Scarabees"
