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.
