Join us to witness Elizabeth Goodfellow’s exquisite songs light up the Centennial stage. As a full-time percussionist, Elizabeth and her marimba are usually on the road, so we were fortunate to catch her during a moment of relative stillness. This set, featuring a collection of new original material written during lockdown, furthers our assertions that, thanks to artists like Elizabeth, a musical renaissance is on the horizon.

Elizabeth Goodfellow is a Los Angeles-based drummer, percussionist, and vocalist (Iron and Wine, Madison Cunningham, boygenius, Per Gessle). She grew up in Northern California’s San Joaquin Valley and started playing drums at age eleven at local harvest festivals. Beth’s first professional drumming job was playing in the Air Force National Guard Band of the West Coast while studying classical percussion performance at San Jose State University. In 2003 she was selected to the IAJE’s Sisters in Jazz Quintet which performed at the North Sea Jazz Festival. After spending over a decade in the San Francisco Bay Area music scene, an appearance on America’s Got Talent in 2012 and a recording gig with Swedish band Roxette’s Per Gessle (En Vacker Dag, 2017) inspired her to move to Los Angeles where she sold vintage clothes in order to self-release and produce her first album on cassette: “Silly Sun”, 2018. Shortly thereafter she landed a touring job with folk artist Iron and Wine, where she was required to sing backup vocals and drum at the same time. In summer 2018 Beth recorded drums at Sound City with Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker, and Lucy Dacus for their boygenius EP. In 2019 Beth released her digital EP, “Sea Ranch”, and spent several months on the road as drummer with Grammy-nominated artist Madison Cunningham, as well as touring Asia and Europe with NYC jazz group The Hot Sardines. In early 2020 Beth released her digital single, “Milwaukee”. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Elizabeth focused on home recording, including tracking backing vocals for remote collaborations (Calexico). In the fall of 2020, Beth spent several weeks in Tucson, AZ, writing for marimba and vocals and releasing the short songs in a Bandcamp-only album, “Hunting the Silence”. Elizabeth’s latest single, “Terror and Trust”, was released on February 12th, 2021, and will be available on vinyl in summer, 2021
