Less resume, more life
Besides music, Liz loves cooking learning about plant- based nutrition (and trying to veganize everything for her family and roommates!), spending as much time at the beach as much as possible, and going west coast swing dancing (her all time favorite hobby and stress relief)!
Although classically trained, Liz loves the versatility of the harp. She grew up playing Celtic music in a band with her family- The Scottish Thistles- and accompanying her sister, Katrina, on jazz and pop songs in their spare time.
Liz and Katrina have a duo, Sorella Chamber Music, based in Northern California.

During her undergrad, Liz started experimenting with a loop pedal and began freelancing around Southern California, arranging her own covers of popular songs.
If you're planning a wedding or event and think a unique, custom arrangement of your favorite song would elevate your event to a new level of elegance, contact Liz to see if she can help you out :)
