For my profile on myspace:

Elizabeth Carpenter has been performing in the Seattle area for 10 years and has been composing and playing guitar for 24 years. After her feet went kaput as a dancer (her last days as a modern dancer were at The Juilliard School) she took-up guitar & songwriting as her next art form. She originally set off on documentary film-making after Juilliard (receiving a BFA in Film from New York University) but music became more a more compelling interest. She still pursues a side-career in photography.

She performs as The Elizabeth Carpenter Quartet, Trio, Duo and solo, with a repertoire of over 50 original songs & 15 arrangements of jazz & pop standards (from "My Funny Valentine" to Aerosmith''s "Jaded").

She also performs as a jazz & standards vocalist with well-known pianist & composer Victor Janusz. She has just recorded "Guadalupe" - a duet on his newly released CD "Cosmo Street": https://www.tradebit.com and available here on CDBaby!

The Elizabeth Carpenter Ensemble includes:
Conlin Roser on guitar
Erik Anderson on drums,
Jon Markel on double bass
Tobi Stone on saxophone (bass & alto) and on flute (of The Tiptons & Reptet)
Amy Denio on sax/accordian (of The Tiptons)
Dave Carter on trumpet/flugel horn (of Skerik''s Synchopated Taint)
Ty Baillie - keyboardist
Jeff Busch - Latin Percussion (Tumbao)
Paul Rucker - cello

Carpenter''s Dissonant Roots Music evolved from blues, jazz, rock, R&B, Latin and folk traditions.

She plays a finger-style guitar on an electric hollow-body Alvarez with a sound marked by the use of dissonant chords, complex rhythms, lyrics that straddle the comic-melancholic zone and sung in a rich, wide-ranging alto.

Audiences have compared her to Nora Jones, Sam Phillips, Joni Mitchell, Nellie McCay, Dayna Kurtz, Beth Orton, Dido, Cassandra Wilson, Diana Krall, Aimee Mann and Michelle Shocked.
