Authentic. Fresh. Organic. Artistic. Accessible.
Elizabeth Hunnicutt’s passion for authenticity, faith, and justice is a constant theme throughout her music. This passion is one of the many reasons her sound and heart have garnered her an extremely broad and diverse audience. As a true artist, when experiencing the beautiful, confusing, and sometimes tragic journey of life, Elizabeth responds the only way she knows how, through song. She pairs eloquent words and haunting melodies with circumstances, questions, and situations that resonate with many. With her approachable humor, vulnerability, and heart for community, Elizabeth connects deeply with audiences both through her recordings and live.
In her own words, “I love music because it connects with people on a heart level. I am passionate about people not just being entertained, but people being transformed. A lyric or a moment in a song can shift your perspective on life. For me, it is often in the midst of music that I feel God speaks to me. Over the years my overarching desire has become more and more to simply see people connect with God through music. That is a thrill unlike any other.”
Born on a farm in rural Nebraska, raised near the mountains in Colorado, spending her formative college years in Minneapolis-St. Paul, and then making the move out west to the San Francisco Bay Area, Elizabeth’s musical maturity reflects the varied places, relationships, and communities that have informed her life thus far. Although her music has evolved along her journey, her message of hope and unwavering faith has been a constant.
With such a widespread fan base, Elizabeth can be found performing her music or leading worship everywhere from festivals, colleges, churches, retreats and conferences to house concerts. She has shared the stage with such talented artists as Matt Maher, Mat Kearney, Brooke Fraser, Shane and Shane, David Crowder Band, Sara Groves, and The Brilliance, as well as many others.
As of 2014, Elizabeth has released six albums with her latest project a beautifully woven-together masterpiece of songs of Advent and Christmas. This highly anticipated project combines her original arrangements of long-standing favorites with new songs she has written of celebration and hope. After drawing on the talents of her close network of musician friends and artists to create this musical experience, she is eager to finally share it with others.
