Following a number of studio releases with her band, folk-pop singer-songwriter Elizabeth Cornish returns to the Musician stage as a solo, acoustic artist for the UK release of her first home recorded album, “Where Were We Then”.
Elizabeth Cornish doesn’t tell stories. Instead she gives you a tantalizing glimpse into her world and invites you to fill in the gaps for yourself. Her cathartic songs, overflow unashamedly with raw emotion. They are simultaneously fragile and powerful, and although they touch on dark and painful subject matter, they are never melancholy. On the contrary, Cornish’s poetry, infectious choruses and waltzing guitar lines lift you up and leave you feeling hopeful.
While her debut album, “Displaced” dealt with her struggle to make sense of her nomadic upbringing, “Where Were We Then” is an expressive journey about enduring love, personal loss, and grief. Inspired by folk, country and indie-pop singer-songwriters including Laura Marling, Lucy Rose, Jason Isbell and John Moreland to name a few, Cornish effortlessly weaves elements of these genres into her delicately crafted songs while remaining undeniably true to her artistic origins as a through and through singer-songwriter.
