Elizabeth Hummel is a prolific songwriter, having written well over 500 songs, and counting. While living in San Diego in the ‘90s, she won “Best Acoustic Artist” in the San Diego Music awards, was chosen to perform in the Lilith Fair with Sarah McLaughlin, opened for national acts such as Shawn Colvin and Pops Staples, performed at South by Southwest and North by Northwest. In 1995, she started her own record label, Brew Records, which continues as Brew Media today. Since 1991, Elizabeth has released eight albums of original music, her most recent being It’s About Time (2014).

Elizabeth creates timeless tunes. Her melodies seem like they’ve been around as long as Greensleeves. Her lyrics are inspired by Greek myths, fairytales, and nature. They tell stories about love’s misery and glory and reflect on how to be a happier and better person. She also sings about sex, fruit, and having a good time. She plays banjo and guitar live, and many other instruments in her recordings. In performance she is funny and real, and her voice rocks you out, calms you down, makes you giggle, and sends chills up your spine. Based on her family roots deep in the Appalachian mountains, Elizabeth’s music speaks to the heart and reflects to us glimpses of ourselves at our best.

After a decade holding a “real job” and only performing sporadically, Elizabeth is once again playing in the living rooms of her neighbors and planning world tours. She performs as much as she can in Oregon and Washington with the Elizabeth Hummel Trio, accompanied by Robin Toye on percussion and Brian Castillo on mandolin.
