Acoustic/Electric/Slide guitarist and vocalist. Composer. Teacher. Bandleader.
" . . . authentic yet refreshingly original . . . a blueswoman at the dawn of a superb career." -Memphis Blues Society
"Faithfully carrying on the traditions of Elizabeth Cotton and Malvina Reynolds, (with a dose of Bessie Smith, for good measure) Elizabeth Wise is a vital link who connects us to this fast fading golden era, and breathes new life into it. Elizabeth is a young folk and blues guitarist/singer/songwriter, a fresh face who may have been born 75 years too late."
IN YOUR EAR STUDIOS: Shockoe Session 15
"Dance the night away to acoustic blues that swing from Elizabeth Wise and the Shoo Flies. Richmond native Wise updates old classics with funky folk overtones and her smooth vocals run the gamut from soothing to tearing down the bar. This is heat that you can’t escape, so kick your boots up to rollicking original tunes and catch this swinging star and her band while on the rise."
