Bio

For the past seven years, Elizabeth Foster has traveled the American Southeast playing contemporary Folk music for thousands of listeners. She is a singer/songwriter who grew up in Columbia, South Carolina. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a degree in Art History and Painting, she started playing music with local artist, Hannah Traylor. Their collaboration of original music took them to various venues around the country as well as overseas. They completed two successful independant recordings.

Elizabeth is now living in Nashville, Tennessee where she has been further developing her music career in songwriting and continues to perform. Her music is a product of her love of Americana and Folk. When asked to describe her motives in music, she states, "My intention in my music is to define and redefine my experiences of love and its losses. Music is really just a way in which I can explore my life and how to deal with it. It's too easy to just go through life and not really process it. Songwriting forces me to be intentional in my thoughts and with my words."

The purity of her vocals and depth of lyrical content are beautifully displayed in her newly released record, "San Fransisco." This ten song recording, produced by Mitch Dane of Sputnic Sound, is a collection of intimate writings of love and relationships, brokenness and renewal, and the beauty of life with purpose. "I absolutely loved working on this record," she states. "It's my first solo project and I couldn't have asked for a better line up of musicians to play on it--Bryan Sutton, Matthew Perryman Jones, Andy Osenga, Andy Hubbard, Aaron Sands. It was incredible to have Mitch producing it and knowing I was going to end up with something I really liked. He really allowed me the space to be creative."

"I listen to Patty Griffin, EmmyLou Harris, HEM, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, as well as Jonatha Brooke and John Prine. I love the way they communicate, sometimes it's simple but it hits you like a freight train." Elizabeth continues to write and perform her original music, reaching audiences with her carefully woven images and soaring melodies.
