Elizabeth and the Catapult
Elizabeth Ziman, who performs as Elizabeth and the Catapult, is a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter from New York, living and working in Brooklyn. She’s toured with the likes of Sara Bareilles and Kishi Bashi; collaborated with with Esperanza Spalding, Gillian Welch, Blake Mills and Ben Folds; scored, with Paul Brill, a variety of international award-winning documentaries including Trapped, a Peabody winner; and won the 2015 Independent Music Award for Songwriting, Folk category. Her songs have been featured in national television campaigns for Google, Amazon, Sky TV, and ”So You Think You Can Dance”.
Always writing, Elizabeth has narrowed her vast collection of previously unrecorded material down to her fourth full-length studio album KEEPSAKE, produced by Dan Molad (Lucius) and featuring collaborations with Richard Swift (The Shins). Her most personal and cohesive record yet, KEEPSAKE is about nostalgia and transformation; hope tempered with regret; a distillation of her experience with memories over time shaping her perspective on reality.
Armed with her violin, loop pedal and voice, sonic weaver Hannah Epperson arranges beautiful musical landscapes without indulgence or over-saturation. As a stirring solo performer and talented collaborative artist, she has joined forces with a versatile cast of collaborators across a spectrum of genres. More recently, these creative explorations have included composing and performing for interdisciplinary film and dance companies across the country and in New York, where she now resides. Hannah’s breadth as a collaborative and compositional powerhouse stems from from an eclectic experiential and educational background: from learning Appalachian folk tunes by ear with a cowgirl in Utah to travelling through Scandinavia and Europe as an accompanist; or from touring her solo project by sailboat with permaculturists to accompanying Flamenco dancers in Spain, before finishing her honours degree in Human Geography and representing Canada at World Championships for ultimate frisbee in 2015.
The versatile and collaborative journey of this Salt Lake City born violinist informs the creative compositions she offers in her solo projects. Hannah’s unique songwriting and performance earned her one of British Columbia’s Peak Performance Project awards in 2013 and international recognition as a powerful songwriter whose compositions weave classical emotion together with the raw energy of indie music. Her warm voice sits perfectly within the tone of her four acoustic strings layered together and affected electronically, evoking references to Andrew Bird turned with vocal melodies by Feist; or Owen Pallett reinterpreted by Lykke Li. Hannah’s sound crosses genres and will continue to offer various levels of musical and emotional exploration to the same listener at different times.
