Virginia native blues and folk singer-songwriter Elizabeth Wise performs a variety of styles including her original compositions and arrangements, and updates old classics with funky folk overtones while her smooth vocals run the gamut from soothing to tearing down the bar.
Wise has lived, traveled, and toured around the world with her music on acoustic, electric and slide guitar from as far west as Memphis, as far north as Boston, as far East as Taiwan and as far south as New Zealand. She also leads bands in Boston, New York City, Memphis, and Richmond, all the while singing from her roots wherever she goes and finding how roots-based music is a commonality between cultures around the world.
"Swinging, sassy blues define the music of Elizabeth Wise . . . This is heat that you can't escape, s kick your boots up to rollicking original tunes and catch this swinging star while on the rise." - C-Ville Arts Pick
