ABOUT THE SONGWRITER:

Elizabeth Johnson earned her Masters from New York University's Dramatic Writing Program. She is a member of the WGA, west and the Animation Writers Caucus, and ASCAP.

Her song Think Too Much was licensed for Johnny Depp's landmark TV show, "21 Jump Street." Thanks to "Think" producer Jeff Silverman and Debbie Heavers of Palette Music Editorial for getting the song to Steve Cannell.

Think Too Much originally gained attention on MP3, holding the number one position in Los Angeles for three consecutive weeks. Think Too Much is produced by Jeff Silverman at Palette Studios in Burbank, California. Silverman, who also played guitar on Think, was lead guitarist for Rick Springfield, Redbone, and Roger Miller. Silverman has done music for companies including HBO, Showtime, MGM, and Dreamworks.

Her piano song Broken Streetlamp is featured in the documentary feature, "It/ll Be Better Tomorrow" at the 31st Deauville American Film Festival 2005. Made by Michael W. Dean, it's a look at the life of Beat author Hubert Selby Jr. ("Last Exit to Brooklyn" and "Requiem for a Dream.") The film features new interviews with Hubert Selby Jr., Lou Reed, Jared Leto, Ellen Burstyn, Darren Aronofsky, Jerry Stahl, and others. It also features rare footage of Henry Rollins and Anthony Kiedis. The 79 minute film is narrated by Robert Downey Jr.

Her Christmas song Under the Mistletoe earned an Honor Award in the Great American Songwriting Contest. The song was engineered and produced by Yari Schutzer. Look for it this holiday as an animated work!

She is currently working and developing new songs with producer Joseph DiRocco (Open Hand) at Red Light Recording and Star Seed Music. DiRocco has played drums on demo tracks for the likes of Jane Wiedlin, Lenny Kravitz, and Vonda Shepard. He will play on Elizabeth’s tracks.

Elizabeth has performed her writing and piano music on a regular basis at clubs in the LA and NY, including The Sidewalk Cafe, whose weekly "anti-hoot" music is often acclaimed by Billboard Magazine. Her one-woman musical, Duck. Cover. Hang On., was about surviving single motherhood as a teen mom in the New York City’s East Village. After showcasing at Expanded Arts and Duplex Cabaret for two years, it found a home at The Westbeth Theater Center, who developed and produced.

Most importantly, Elizabeth lives in Los Angeles with her son Roman, who’s a violinist, guitarist, and a Little League all-star.
