Elisabeth Carlisle :  What Artists and the Press are Saying About Elisabeth Carlisle: “Likened to artists such as Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, and Melissa Etheridge, 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 is a wonderful artist and writer with a strong sense of self and a unique and passionate sensibility. First rate on all levels.” Eric Bazilian, Co-Founder, The Hooters

Haley Johnsen ‘s influences range from the eccentricities of bands like Radiohead and Pink Floyd; to classic, folk and indie-rock vocalists such as of Eva Cassidy, Nicole Atkins, Florence Welch and Brandi Carlile – all artists with a flair for the dramatic in their delivery.  Haley in her own words:  “From a melodic standpoint, I have a hard time writing songs that don’t build to an epic moment.  As a naturally a loud singer, it is really fun for me to play with intricate melodies that reach a point where I can just belt it out with a big lunged chorus, taking the song in a direction the listener wouldn’t expect it to go. “
