“Elisabeth writes songs that offer intelligent, introspective peeks through
a multi-colored musical glass… a capable guitarist and arranger too.”
Guitar Player Magazine
In a world of flash and dash, Elisabeth Cutler stands out as the rare artist who combines intimacy, honesty and sophistication in her songwriting and performance. Living in Italy and touring Europe extensively over the past 10 years, Elisabeth was born and raised in North America, honing her craft in her hometown of Boston, and later, Nashville. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Joni Mitchell and Diana Krall, Cutler forges her own distinctive and dynamic path, blending elements of folk/jazz/blues.
Critics describe Elisabeth as a dynamic performer and band leader who commands the stage with a rare and engaging honesty. She has graced stages as diverse and prestigious as The Bitter End and CBGB’s Gallery of New York, The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and the Kerrville Folk Festival.
Polishing Stones (2015 Beste! Unterhaltung), her sixth album of original songs, is both spare and well-defined, touching on themes of patience and comfort in solitude, and presented in an atmosphere of positive and hopeful celebration. Recorded in Rome, Italy, Polishing Stones is built on the rich sound and arrangements of Elisabeth’s guitar tunings and chord voicings and framed by her refined American-style songwriting. Her memorable songs are well-supported by a group of international (Latin/Nordic) musician friends; thus creating her unique genre she affectionately calls, ‘My World Music’.
Elisabeth Cutler is the proud endorser of Ken Parker Guitars, Fishman Transducers, and D’Addario Strings.
In trio formation, Elisabeth is joined by two unique Italian musicians: Massimo Cusato (percussion, drums) and Filippo De Laura (Chapman Stick, odd-stringed instruments).
