Elizabeth Everts was born and raised in California and currently lives in Munich, Germany. Her energetic and dynamic songs, honest voice and soft lyrical touch culminate to achieve an intimacy in her music. Her voice has been called "haunting and beautiful". Her first album, "Obstruction Destruction", released in 2017 is a mostly solo album, with vocals and piano similar to Tori Amos and a mood reminiscent of The Doors.

 

In November of 2017 she released an EP entitled "EEEEP", which ventures into areas of electronic experimentation and utilizes broader arrangements of instruments, including keyboards, drums, piano and vibraphone. She is currently working on a second EP after having released a series of singles in 2018. Elizabeth is classically trained on the piano and studied classical/experimental composition as well.

 

As a child she was exposed to many hours of listening to records by artists such as The Doors, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and sang and heard countless American folk songs. All of these influences form ingredients, large or small, in her songwriting. She tries to preserve improvisation in her songs as much as possible and balance intuitive musical ideas with musical skills in refinement to get ideas represented in the songs across to the audience in a moving and meaningful way.

 

For Elizabeth, songwriting is a necessity, an expression and an attempt to evoke affinity in listeners.
