I am thrilled to announce that I'll be passing through the southwest next month- that's SOON! Please come say hello, bring your friends, and spread the word. It's been a while since I've hit some of these cities; not so much for others (can't wait to see you again, Night Vale fans!). I love that there is a different style of Mexican food in all of these cities- which I will happily accept in exchange for new songs, new stories, laughs and hugs. Check the "tour" section of this site for more details.

Happy New Year! News, a New Song, and Comics For Ewe.

Greetings from Seattle, where I'm working on tracking some songs with Jason Webley. The "Margaret" album release tour last month was such a blast. For those of you who missed it, there are some videos on my Youtube channel of me singing "Lark of My Heart" with an incredible band, as well as the a cappella stunner "Maker of My Sorrow".

I also got the year started off with a bang - Jason challenged me to write as many songs as I could in one day, and on top of that, one of them preferably on a ukulele (an instrument I'd never played). I wrote two, and they are beautiful. Bound to be highlights on the upcoming album. Here's a video of me playing my brand new ukelele waltz, "Waiting Around Again".

And finally, just in time for New Year's Day 2015, the magnificent Dame Darcy sent me her three page comic illustration of one of my stories. About the time I had a rash all over my face and thought I was allergic to Texas, among other shenanigans. These are fantastic, and I'm looking forward to making more with her throughout the year. Enjoy!

Big Love,

eliza

'Margaret' Album Release & Tour with Jason Webley

I'm sitting at my laptop tackling the endless sea of business emails I always have to tend to, listening to my two new songs for "Margaret"- Jason Webley's wonderful, inspired collaborative project to be released on 12/12. I love these songs so much that anyone who walks by my room these past couple of days would assume I'm a total narcissist and just want to hear myself on repeat. He did an incredible job fleshing out my two little babies. I'm excited for this upcoming tour. I'm excited for this album. And I'm very excited for what's to come in 2015.

Here are our tour stops, including links to the venue sites for tickets. Wheeee!!!

12/12 - SEATTLE, WA -- The Moore Theatre
12/18 - PORTLAND, OR -- Wonder Ballroom
12/19 - EUGENE, OR -- Wow Hall
12/20 - SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- The Castro Theatre

Europe Tour - Spring 2015

It's taken years to make this happen, but I'm beyond thrilled to announce that I am touring Europe in the spring. A huge "thank you" to fans in Germany who began reaching out early on to book me for performances, and to a select few touring ladies for being helpful friends by sharing their contacts.

I'll be in the UK, Germany and Switzerland in April. Italy, Spain and France in May. Some dates are already posted on the "tour" section of this site.

If you would like to see me perform in your city and have a venue contact, please drop me a line. Or better yet- if you are interested in hosting a living room concert (it's easy!), check out this video or this resource, which should answer any questions you might have about the process, and send me an email. I want to see you!

Big Love,

"Margaret" Tour with Jason Webley

I am honored to be a part of Jason Webley's production of "Margaret"- a collaborative album about a young woman whose scrapbook was found in a dumpster. Following the success of a wildly popular Kickstarter campaign, the album and book will be released on 12/12... AND WE'RE TOURING THE WEST COAST!

Tour stops include Seattle, Portland, Eugene, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Check Jason's website, facebook, or the "tour" section of this site for further details.

The lineup includes some of the best songwriters in the country, who happen to also be some of my favorite humans.

See you in December!
