About Elizabeth

My fascination with the electronic keyboard began in the 1980s when I was 9 years old, I am now 43. Monophonic instruments didn't appeal to me and I wanted an instrument that could produce chords. I also wanted to play an instrument that was the perfect combination of design, technology and functionality allowing me to fully express myself with no limits. I think this instrument sort of picked me.

I am a self-motivated individual with excellent interpersonal skills and entrepreneurial spirit. For almost 30 years I have dedicated my life toward my career as a musician. I have set myself goals, demonstrated exemplary time management, successfully controlled stressful situations and been held accountable. I have created all my own musical arrangements and have set up new venues and held music festivals for myself and other musicians to perform.

I have promoted live music through dynamic performances on stage for almost 30 years. A high quality musical output has always been paramount to me. Together with my charismatic stage presence, I have accumulated a wealth of experience and a large fanbase as a soloist. My instrument is self contained and I can perform music in the style of an orchestra or big band one minute and a pop/rock band the next. My performances, where my instrument allows the audience to see the use of both hands and both feet, break the boundaries between the different genres of music. I produce sounds of stringed instruments, wind instruments, percussion instruments and much more.

Through my performances, I have brought people together who are normally in social isolation and I would now like to build on the skills I already have to offer live streamed and pre-recorded electronic concert performances from my home studio. By using innovative livestreaming technology, I want to reach out to new and existing audiences across the world and promote the instrument to younger generations who have never seen this instrument played. My aim is to promote health and wellbeing in society and to be able to offer (via digital methods) my solo performances into the safety of peoples homes. I also wish to increase positive environmental effects by remotely working from my home studio by decreasing the amount of travelling.

As a gigging musician travelling extensively throughout the UK and further afield, I am now one of the busiest performers on the live organ / keyboard concert and dance circuit.  My solo concerts are well rehearsed and I play music in a variety of genres to suit many tastes in a refreshing style, presented with my own brand of light hearted humour.  Additionally I have in excess of 20 years experience performing live electronic music for ballroom and sequence dancing. I have an impressive track record and hold notable career highlights. 2019 was the fourth consecutive year that I had the honour to be invited to play alongside The Empress Orchestra in the impressive Empress Ballroom, in The Winter Gardens, Blackpool, for The Blackpool Sequence Dance Festival.
