'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!

New Orleans and Georgia this Fall

Very excited to announce my trip to the city where "the devil's existence is freely recognized" (Flannery O'Connor) this fall for the Halloween season.

There will be a fancy dinner party called "Eliza Rickman in Wonderland"- an intimate supper and song event under a legendary crepe myrtle tree in New Orleans.

There will be a benefit show for the OTO Temple with my dear friend and performer extraordinaire Vinsantos and my very fierce new friend Jill Tracy.

There will be an All Hallows' Eve performance at a baby grand piano during the "Drowned Sailors Wake" til the wee hours of the morning.

There will be a Dia de los Muertos party at my sweet friend Adelita's stunning home in Covington, Louisiana (one gorgeous 45 minute drive up the causeway), with the incredibly charming, pink-haired, ukulele-toting Austin transplant known as Fantasy.

And because it is my favorite and the stars are aligning, I will then be visiting that peach of a state- beautiful Georgia. Visiting Dame Darcy, who has recently designed several new merch items for me (see one example below). We're performing in Savannah at The Jinx.

See the "tour" section of this site for any and all details regarding these events.

I am currently looking for a sweet house concert or dinner party in Atlanta- any night from 11/08-11/11. Please email me if you are interested in hosting.

Big Love & see you soon,

eliza

December Tour with Jason Webley!

 

By now, many of you have heard of Jason Webley's whimsical project, "Margaret", inspired by a woman whose scrapbook was found in a dumpster. It is a collaborative effort about this woman from Jason's hometown named Margaret Rucker. He hired me (and several of our other fabulous, talented songwriter friends) to write songs based on or inspired by her life and poetry. The Kickstarter is over, but you should watch the video here. It is a deeply moving story, and the campaign was a mega-success. As a result, we will be taking the show on the road this December for a brief west-coast tour around Margaret Rucker's birthday. Check the "tour" section of this site to see if we're coming to you!

I went up to the Seattle area to record my contributions to the "Margaret" album a couple of weeks ago, and since it was my birthday, Jason and I played a sweet little show at a local cafe for our friends. Thank God my pal Sarah brought her camera.
