Biography

Elizabeth is an American singer/songwriter whose primary instrument is the piano (and she has also performed on the flute, alto clarinet and bass clarinet). She was born in El Cajon, California but spent most of her life in the the mid-Atlantic coastal state of Maryland. Growing up, her main musical influence was Elton John and many more musical influences were to follow (including Procol Harum, Johannes Brahms, Aretha Franklin, Joe Jackson and Paul Weller). In her early teens she began studying classical piano and went on to the University of Maryland as a piano performance major - that eventually fell apart due to her being unable to fulfill necessary requirements. After that, at the age of twenty-one she began writing songs and also pursued writing musical plays being influenced tremendously by the plays of Tennessee Williams. Her musical, ‘Cakes’, based on Truman Capote’s, ‘A Christmas Memory’ was accepted for production by the renowned Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, Illinois. However it never made it to the stage because of legal difficulties with the Capote estate. Elizabeth has performed as a solo artist primarily in the Baltimore/Washington DC area (and just recently performed at Caffe Vivaldi in New York city). In addition to writing the lyrics and music for her songs, she has also composed music to many of the poems by Lord Byron.

Her debut album, ‘Reflections In My Tea’ was released on the 3rd of September, 2012. The arrangements on the album go from spare (piano/voice) to full rock band (and then some).

    Is Mike Oldfield part of your influences?... There is an air of Moonlight Shadow in some of your songs! The fact is I was amazingly surprised by the few songs I gave a listen to and I will prolong the pleasure by listening to the other ones tomorrow. Thank you for your compositions.
