Biography

In the honesty and assurance of her new album FLY, it’s easy to observe singer-songwriter ELIZABETH WILLS’ own appreciation of the classic American novels by John Steinbeck and Harper Lee, and the photography of Ansel Adams and Margaret Bourke-White, which, she says, capture both important specific historical moments, as well as the timelessness of their subjects – the “perfect and imperfect, all at once,” as Elizabeth puts it.

Along with treasured music of Joni Mitchell, which even at a young age resonated inside her and helped make sense of her world, Wills finds that art and expression of every kind “have influenced my life, the way I see the world; my mortality, even, and my desire to make a difference.”

Often, the most revealing and motivating art is the manifesting of a burning, conscious and committed resolution to put into the world what the artist sees is needed in the world. That moral and creative compass is plain in every note and word of the album. “The whole concept of the album, FLY, is a reflection of the crossroads in my life,” explains Wills. “We come upon crossroads everyday: the choices we make about happiness, trust, faith, love, loss, everything. It was important to me to give this piece of my soul — the album — a name that symbolized the absence of fear. And that conveyed the image of freedom.”
