“The sound of Carlisle is that of a strong, skillful and intelligent woman with a voice full of poetry.” Good Times Santa Cruz, CA

Elisabeth Carlisle is an American singer-songwriter from Santa Cruz, California. Her debut album, “No Worries,” was released in 1998. It was followed by a tour throughout the U.S. and Europe, including the MP3.COM Technology Tour with Goo Goo Dolls and Tonic, and opening for Meredith Brooks in Luxembourg and Las Vegas. Since then, Elisabeth has recorded three more albums with Swedish producer Amir Aly: “Roll With the Flow” (2002), “Elisabeth Carlisle EP” (2011), and “Beyond These Walls” (2018). She has been working exclusively with her band from Sweden since 2000. The band has toured throughout Sweden and continues to tour in the US, hitting clubs and festivals from Montana to Los Angeles.  

Elisabeth is known for her poignant lyrics and distinguished melodies. Her ballads can cut to the heart, and her coastal California roots bring energy and good Americana rock to her shows. Her bandmates from Sweden bring their years of professional experience from performing with artists like Jill Johnson, The Liberators, The Men and The Harmony Aviators. 

When not touring, Elisabeth has been working as a music educator. She received a GRAMMY Foundation Signature School Award for her recording arts education program and her school was one of three high schools in the United States to receive a visit from the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus through the NAMM Foundation for her students to record an original song and music video. She continues to work in music education as an instructor and a consultant for other school districts creating and implementing recording arts programs.
