“Eliza Gilkyson is a politically minded, poetically gifted singer-songwriter…one of the most respected musicians in folk and Americana music circles.” – The Classic Rock Examiner
Pushing the boundaries of folk music, Eliza cleverly disguises her sly social commentaries within catchy acoustic ballads, edgy folk rockers and fresh electronic atmospheres that paint a vivid image of life’s struggles and triumphs in a world that she feels is “poised on the edge of moral, economic and environmental bankruptcy.” Eliza is a politically minded, poetically gifted singer-songwriter, who has become one of the most respected musicians in folk and Americana music circles. The Grammy-nominated artist has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, eTown, SiriusXM, Air America Radio and has toured with Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin and Mary Chapin Carpenter. She has been inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame alongside legends Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt, and Nanci Griffith. Eliza has also been touring extensively this year with Red Horse, a super-folk group featuring Eliza Gilkyson, John Gorka, and Lucy Kaplansky.
