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 all the industrial outer suburbs of Sydney - factories, graffiti, high rise apartments, deserted parking lots and hundreds of tiny backyards filled with rusted out old cars and plastic toys. The sun was shining on everything and suddenly I realised I wasn't feeling bad anymore. I realised everyone has a story and things to figure out no matter where we are at and the answer was lying right in front, not just in some incredible rainbow or sunset but in grey graffiti and concrete as well.

This is something that has always helped and totally inspired me, the magic I guess under the ordinary.  It seems to turn up under everything eventually, everyone and even the hardest situations. I write songs purely for fun, about any thing that inspires me. It's a joy to be able to share my music with you.. thanks for being part of this journey. Please join me on the mailing list (scroll to the bottom) and at facebook so we can stay connected!   Elizabeth

'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

 "Certain music, songs whenever I hear them, take me  to a safe, blissful, timeless place and have seen me through the hardest times in my life. I waited  seven years to record again, it had to feel ‘right’. That moment finally came late one night, a few seconds into my first listen of an album that had arrived from America, Paul Adams The Land Where I Come From. What a wondrous creation! I was hooked straight away by its unique beauty and wondered about talking Paul into joining creative forces.
 
A few months later I was on a plane from Australia to Peoria in America’s mid west, to a whole new world of corn fields, snowstorms, jazz gigs and bottomless coffee.
 
I’ve yet to make an album quickly and easily and this is no exception!  It has also been one of the richest most magical adventures of my life.  Above all I thank Paul for making this album a reality ; for your music, patience, faith, generosity and friendship. Thankyou to my family for your love and support; to friends both past and present who’ve shared my musical journey - particularly Grant Thomas - also Nic Cecire, John Hanlon, Tony King, John Morrison, Bill Risby and anyone who has supported my music in any way over the years.
 
 
My dream was always to make music that might touch others like it touched me. The Bridge has been a long journey, a whole series of leaps of faith, starting with me getting on a plane in Australia for Peoria, Illinois in Winter, 2013.  I'm so happy to share these 13 new songs with you. Last but not least, thank YOU for listening! Life is not easy but it is full of great beauty.  My hope is that these songs capture that."

'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."

DAVID HOFFMAN - long term arranger/trumpet soloist with Ray Charles
