Elisabeth Geel is a singer-songwriter with a distinctive guitar style and warm, powerful mezzo soprano vocals. Her music is characterized by complex jazz-influenced structures and harmonies, and her cerebral, sometimes ironic, but straight-from-the-heart lyrics touch upon a variety of themes.
Her genre defies easy categorization, but she credits Joni Mitchell and Laura Nyro as major influences. Throughout her life she has been inspired by artists from a wide range of genres, i.e. Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Steely Dan, Sarah Vaughan, Kate Bush, etc., and she evolved by distilling these influences into her own unique writing style.
Elisabeth Geel is also an illustrator/visual artist and educator. To view her art please visit the Art page. To view her comic strips please visit the Paffy Dogstar website.
