And Europe Tour Starts ... Now!!!

At long last - princess Eliza is beyond thrilled to be in the land where princes come from. Here is the updated tour poster for this spring's incredibly rigorous route.

A lot of hard work, late nights, countless emails, blood, sweat and tears went into booking this tour. Check the "tour" section of this site for venues and further details. And please spread the word to everyone you know in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Spain and Belgium.

Looking forward to seeing so many of you!

Stacy Hoover's "Wonderland" in New Orleans & The "Lark of My Heart" Music Video

I've had the privilege of staying at my friend Stacy Hoover's stunning antebellum home in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans for the past few weeks. This is the same place where I performed in a majestic crepe myrtle tree last fall.

Every nook and cranny of this place holds some beautiful, unusual, antiquated treat for the senses. She calls it "Wonderland", and with good reason. For more pictures, check out my instagram.

The primary reason for this visit is to work on a music video for everyone's new favorite song of mine, "Lark of my Heart". It will be directed and feature work by incredible New Orleans based artists- most prominently Pandora Gastelum: my very first New Orleans acquaintance, a longtime dear friend, and the incredible puppeteer who made a marionette in my image last year. We shot a kitchen scene the other night with manipulated singing teapots and a ceiling-high wooden ladder, and I laughed when I saw the footage. It reminded me of a certain something.

The video will be released later this year. Excited to share this work and amazing local community with you!

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
