Elizabeth & The Catapult
As a band Elizabeth and the Catapult has released two full length albums under Verve Records and one self titled EP, which the band produced and released on their own. Their first LP, Taller Children (2009), was recorded with producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes), which featured "Tilly and the Wall" and was bolstered by Commercials for Google, Amazon and Sky TV. Their second full length, The Other Side of Zero (2010) was produced by Tony Berg (Aimee Mann, Jesca Hoop) and featured Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings on the title track. This album drew interest from actress Anne Hathaway, who used the song "Thank You For Nothing" to inspire her for her main scene (hair cutting) in Les Miserables. Hathaway later cast Elizabeth as a street musician in an upcoming film about New York Musicians. Over the last three years, Elizabeth has toured with Sara Bareilles, Greg Laswell, Lenka, and Kishi Bashi. In the last year, she played drums in Kishi Bashi's band, and sang backgrounds for The Waterboys and The Shins. She's recently finished a new EP with her songwriting muse Mr. Richard Swift and is set to release a full length she made with Dan Molad (Lucius, Here We Go Magic) in January.
