Vocalist and trombonist elizabeth! (Elizabeth Dotson-Westphalen) is a native of Woodstock, Vermont. Since graduating from Harvard in 2000, she has been based in Brooklyn, New York, where she maintains an active touring and recording schedule.

She has played and recorded music with jazz musicians (Matt Wilson, Kenny Wollesen, Chris Potter), indie rockers (St. Vincent, Escort, The Silent League, Jill Sobule), and pop stars (Michael Bolton), and has had the opportunity through music to travel the world.
