I'll be taking the stage a couple of times in February!
First off, on Sunday February 12, I'll join roots-rock band Whisperado at Arlene's Grocery in Manhattan at 8pm. Rootsy-folksy-rocksy original songs, and I'll be tickling the electronic ivories.
Then on Sunday February 26, Jon Sobel and I will play and sing on each other's songs at the most excellent Mike Risko Music School in Ossining, NY. The night starts at 7pm.
Check out the Calendar page for details & maps.
The year winds to a close with "A Very Merry Chick-mas," a gathering of the infamous Chicks With Dip, who wowed fans with the hugely successful recording and tour of "Joni Mitchell's Blue: A 40th Anniversary Celebration." We'll be coming to Rockwood Music Hall on Dec. 16 at 8pm to celebrate holidays with traditional and surprising repertoire.
Then I'll be joining my cohorts in the roots-rock band Whisperado, to play a couple of shows. We'll be at Parkside Lounge on the Lower East Side in Manhattan on December 29, and in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn on January 21. Check out the Calendar to get all the details.
See you out there!
Venues in NYC come and go - but I just found a new one! I'll be playing with the band on Friday, November 4 at 7:45pm at Branded Saloon in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Come on down for dinner, drinks, and music!
Thank you to Ron Olesko for the fantastic piece in Sing Out! He says "Elisa crafts powerful songs and possesses a stunning voice. This new CD and her concert performances reveal a unique artist whose profile is rising in the acoustic music community.

Thanks to New York Music Daily for this amazing review of Inside the Glass! They say "Singer/keyboardist Elisa Peimer is a lot smarter, and edgier, and funnier than your typical folk-pop songwriter. She has a distinctive, soul-infused, slightly throaty delivery, has a way with a classic pop hook and also a devastating wit." I'm blushing! Read the whole review here!
I had an amazing time yesterday hanging out with Ron Olesko on his show "Traditions" on WFDU-FM in New Jersey. We talked about the new album, the record release show this Sunday, and my love of Broadway show tunes and AM pop radio. Plus, I played some acoustic versions of songs from Inside the Glass. You can listen to the whole show at Soundcloud here.
I got my first album review for the new release! Acoustic Live says "Peimer’s voice conveys enormous emotional presence...She convinces us that she’s a force to be taken seriously."
And thanks for a host radio stations and shows that have played tracks off my album - WFMT, WMSC, WEFT, Mostly Folk Radio, WFDU, and WFUV.

It's finally here! My new album, Inside the Glass, is out! You can get it over at CD Baby, iTunes, and Amazon, and stream it at Spotify. Check out the album page here for lyrics and music.
It's been over a year in the works, so I'm so glad to be able to share it with you now!
I'm playing a couple shows in the next couple of months with friends Irwin Menken and Jay Deegan and a host of really talented people - Jody Stephens from Big Star, Nels Cline from Wilco, and Stephen Goulding of The Mekons to name a few. Check out the Calendar page for details.
In other super-exciting news, I've just about finished mixing my new album, officially titled Inside the Glass. Next steps are mastering the music and designing a package. Then manufacturing, setting it up at online stores...and releasing it!! Scary - but maybe that's just because it's Halloween...
