Singer, songwriter, pianist…a true artist, Elizabeth Eckert was discovered by five-time Grammy Award Winning producer Paul Worley, who upon hearing her for the first time declared she “bends music to her will, note by note.” Reminiscent of Ingrid Michelson with the soulful realness of Sheryl Crow, Elizabeth is an inspiring example of classical training and commercial success. The accomplished pianist discovered songwriting when a wrist injury and subsequent surgery tore her from the concert stage. After developing her original sound, Elizabeth signed with Right Recordings London and now delivers her original songs with commanding vocals and virtuosic playing on stages throughout the contemporary music world.
The daughter of two pianists, Elizabeth started playing as soon as she could crawl up on her mother’s lap to reach the keyboard and by her teenage years won a spot on “Tomorrow’s Brightest Stars,” a showcase sponsored by the National Alliance for Excellence, who presented her premiere at Carnegie Hall.
In a tragic twist of fate, the budding performer’s plans were derailed by her wrist injury, but tragedy was met with optimism and momentum when she discovered her new passion, songwriting. This passion led her to Nashville, where she honed her writing and performing skills. Soon Elizabeth made a name for herself with pop music lovers, country fans, classical music admirers, and Indiana University faithfuls alike with the album "Bloomington," the title track an ode to the Indiana town where Elizabeth attended college.
In Nashville, Elizabeth hones her writing and recording skills under Worley’s mentorship and soon worked with one of New York City’s hottest producers Alex Bilo, (Gavin Degraw, Kelly Rowland) to complete her full-length debut album,Trophy.
Since signing with Right Recordings, Elizabeth has toured extensively in the UK and US, appeared on BBC radio and TV. Label President, David Landau says, “When presenting Elizabeth to BBC Program Directors, I was pleased to hear them acknowledge Elizabeth’s vocals and songwriting to be competitive with the world’s top artists.”
Special appearances include performing National Anthems at numerous professional sporting events including the Houston Astros, Chicago White Sox, and Washington Nationals. Elizabeth has made a splash in the TV/Film world, where she's been featured at the Tennessee Women in Film & Media’s Golden Globe Party and Film-Com/Filmolution.
Elizabeth’s albums Trophy and Bloomington are available through all major digital outlets and for physical purchase in the UK.
