Elizabeth Kallop is a singer/songwriter currently residing in Brooklyn, NY.
Elizabeth has always turned to music and felt most at home at the piano bench – regardless of where the piano bench is, galas, restaurants, hotels, airports, even on New York City Streets!
Prone to breaking into impromptu song, simply, music has always been her deepest passion. A refuge. A powerful form of expression. A vehicle for processing life, one which possesses the power to transcend cultural and language barriers to tell stories.
Elizabeth sang in church and school choirs from an early age and first began piano lessons when 10 years old. Around that same time she began writing poetry and short stories. At 15, while practicing the AIDA song "A Step Too Far," she wrote her first song.
Over the last 22 years Elizabeth has continued writing songs and short stories, weaving together her words with lively piano playing - and on occasion, acoustic guitar - from belting ballads to gentle lullabies, songs for celebratory occasions like graduations & weddings, to tribute songs and those about social justice issues. She has also written children's music, worship songs, and a handful of parody songs.
Elizabeth developed a deep affection for theatre and dance as a child and is known to be the first on and last off the dance floor, regardless if there is actually music playing.
In August 2017, Elizabeth traveled to Accra, Ghana where she released her debut EP "Maybe Yet, Though," during the 2017 Chale Wote Street Art Festival. Her NYC release was in October 2017 at The Bitter End. She is currently working on her second album; stay tuned for updates on its release!
