His mother, Gemma is a high school music teacher. He has one younger sister – Ailish. He played classical piano from the age of six, classical and jazz trumpet from the age of nine and sang at school events from the first year of high school. When Burrows was 12, his singing teacher, jazz musician Dorian Mode, introduced him to the Great American Songbook. This ignited Burrow’s passion for jazz. As a teen he performed with the Chatswood High School Stage Band at the Montreux Jazz Festival and has cited the school’s music program as a major influence.[2]

Burrows has headlined at major jazz festivals around Australia including those at Manly, Noosa, Broadbeach, Adelaide Hills and Norfolk Island and also at major venues including the Crown Casino Melbourne, Jupiters Casino Townsville and Jupiters Casino Broadbeach.

Burrows’ appearances on national television in Australia include Channel 7’s The Morning Show, Channel Ten’s The Circle the Royal Children’s HospitalGood Friday Telethon and the Channel 7 Perth Telethon. He also performed as the opening act for the Pointer Sisters during their national tour of Australia.[3][4]

In 2011 he recorded his debut album with The Swing City Big Band. All of Me is a selection of classic hit songs including many from the Great American Songbook.

Burrows recently completed a number of recordings of original works including tracks written by multi-award-winning songwriter Graeham Goble of Little River Band fame.

He has performed (2014) in Hong Kong for the British Chamber of Commerce and Hong Kong Polo After Dark and as of March 2015 has performed his first shows on a cruise ship.

In November 2015 Liam appeared for the first time in New Zealand, when he appeared in a Sinatra Centenary Concert in Auckland, backed by a 24 piece orchestra.
