 NEW IN 2020 -  FOLLOWING  'IMAGININGS', ZMR'S WINNER INSTRUMENTAL CONTEMPORARY ALBUM OF THE YEAR 2015/ NO 1 DEBUT iTUNES  NEW AGE CHART  COMES DEEPER IMAGININGS -  COLLABORATION WITH MULTI AWARD WINNER PAUL ADAMS - Available now and streaming everywhere.
 
 
"The combination of instruments is quite fascinating and different from your typical new age release because of the jazz element injected by Elizabeth Geyer’s flugelhorn. Then her piano also helps that taste of jazz and in retrospect gives each track an entirely different musical window to look through. But then again, every instrument that is included adds another dimension, layer, and or texture making it all a very unique symbol of the diversity of talent..."  NEW AGE MUSIC REVIEWS  
 
 
 
 “Deeper Imaginings” is the highly anticipated follow-up to Paul Adams and Elizabeth Geyer's 2015 ZMR Contemporary Album of the Year winner “Imaginings”. It is always hard to replicate an album that has become a modern classic – but Adams and Geyer might have done just that." - NEW AGE MUSIC GUIDE

BIOGRAPHY

 

Life is not all waterfalls and rainbows. Chances are, when you need beauty the most, you will be stuck in a cement parking lot.
But it is exactly that beauty and meaning in the ordinary - the kind that one has to dig deep to find, that has always fascinated South Australian born singer/songwriter and flugelhorn player Elizabeth Geyer.
Latest offering Deeper Imaginings, a collaboration with American multi award winning recording artist Paul Adams was borne out of a need for something purer, gentle, healing, yet adventurous during several years when Elizabeth as a vegetarian was working in a supermarket meat department. 
Deeper Imaginings picks up from its predecessor Imaginings, 2015's Zone Music Reporter's Contemporary Instrumental Album Of The Year which debuted at No 1 on the iTunes New Age chart and showcases some of the world's finest musicians including Indian bansuri flute prodigy Pravin Godkhindi, David Hoffman (trumpeter/ arranger, Ray Charles) and Gary Green (UK 's Gentle Giant) much less its co-creator, two time ZMR winner, Paul Adams.
But Elizabeth's most distinctive contribution to date is perhaps that as singer/songwriter with four independent album releases to date and more in the pipeline. Her former life as a freelance jazz trumpet player comes through via key influences Freddie Hubbard, Pat Metheny as well as singer storytellers like Joni Mitchell, Kacey Musgraves and James Taylor.
Elizabeth's songs have garnered praise from some the best ears in the business including Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil),  Grammy winner Ricky Kej and three time Grammy winner Bill Champlin of the band Chicago. In 2013 the late great Bruce Lundvall  featured Elizabeth for his Blue Note Hour on Sirius XFM in New York.
 
"If it was me I'd make a law that everyone on earth should hear that song (The Bridge). Absolutely beautiful. Awesome lyrics and the girl is soo musical"
           Bill Champlin - multiple Grammy Award winner from the band Chicago
Last but not least are the lyrics.  Honoring that core theme of finding beauty in the ordinary,  Elizabeth's writing takes us places songwriters don't usually go, exploring the inner lives of human beings -  some herself, some others -  in suburbia, caravan parks, feeling joy or grief, maybe making awkward conversation, enduring loneliness, envy, or maybe simply stuck at a party -  from giddy first love, happy childhood memories all the way to late bloomers finding themselves, or an old couple selling their lifelong family home, feeling enormous upheaval while simply waiting at the bustop. We are each unique, chequered, flawed, yet vulnerable  beautiful human beings.  
In a world filled with clumsy attempts to connect with each other, - where, as she sings, everyone is on their phones -  Elizabeth's music does exactly that; it connects us, immediately and meaningfully, from the heart.

ON SONGWRITING 

  Years ago when I was feeling really down, I was on a train to the Blue Mountains with my brother.  Along the way we passed through the industrial outer Sydney suburbs - factories, graffiti, high rise apartments, deserted parking lots and hundreds of tiny backyards filled with rusted out cars and plastic toys. The sun was shining on everything and suddenly I felt different. I realised everyone has a story and challenges no matter where we're at and the answer was right in front all along -  it's not only in the amazing rainbows or sunsets, but in grey graffiti and concrete too. This is something that has always helped and inspired me hugely, the magic under the ordinary.  It turns up under everything eventually- everyone, in even the hardest situations. I write songs about this and love to share them.. thanks for being part of the journey -  Elizabeth
