It is a tricky balance to find, that between making music and promoting it, which is what The Bridge is about. We make our music to be shared and heard by others, yet my favourite music is made only for the pure joy and privilege of making it. I always have to be careful not to forget that because when I do, I can fall into depression. We live in a world run by social networking and a million distractions on the internet. I long always to get back to the real things. These past few months I've been playing a game where I say to myself 'If I HAD to write a song about THAT right there in front of me now - eg that hotel, or customer, this situation, my old third grade music teacher - what would it be'. This game is making me very happy. It always sounds lofty somehow but it really is true, happiness is in the doing.
'Blessed with a lovely clear voice, Geyer delivers her intensely beautiful songs on The Bridge like the very best female colleagues from the past.. simply beautiful singing. Songs and lyrics are ongoing very impressive.. The Bridge is such a gorgeous, emotional thorough album that will last a lifetime.' - Pieter Wijnstekers HEAVEN MUSIC MAGAZINE NETHERLANDS
'If it was me I'd make it a law that everyone on the earth should hear that song (The Bridge). Absolutely beautiful. Awesome lyrics and the girl is sooooo musical.'
BILL CHAMPLIN ( CHICAGO, THE SONS)
"Elizabeth Geyer's music is heartfelt, soulful and beautiful. She's equally proficient on the piano and the flugelhorn, both of which she utilizes to enhance her deep, clear voice. As a singer/songwriter she is equal to the best. Her music is as honest as it gets."
