ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Songwriter and classical guitarist Elizabeth Busch (a.k.a. Elizabeth Busch Letourneau) weaves together a unique blend of classical guitar, angelic folk vocals, and profoundly thoughtful lyrics to create her own distinctively meditative, flowing style of music. Drawing from influences of her classical music background, love of Celtic vocal music, and songwriters such as Michael Card, John Michael Talbot, and Fernando Ortega, Elizabeth writes to express truth, beauty, and an honest hunger for God. Oregon pastor Terry Merrill says, “I personally was moved by the contemplative and reflective character of her vocals. She fills a niche for those of us who have a desire for modern Christian music but not the rock style that typically fills the Christian music airwaves… [Her] style reminds me of that of Loreena McKennitt, reflective and somewhat Celtic—a style by which to relax and quietly worship. ”

Elizabeth’s musical journey began with the classical guitar at the age of 7. After graduating with degrees in classical guitar from Colorado Christian University and the University of Southern California (studying under Felicity Muench and William Kanengiser, and in masterclasses with Pepe Romero), Elizabeth began exploring songwriting as a means of combining her passions of creative writing and music. Her first solo guitar CD (Romance de la Guitarra: Music of Spain and Latin America) was released in 2008. In 2010, she released her first album of original songs (Consecrated: Songs Along the Journey). Her second vocal and guitar album, Redemption’s Mystery (recorded and produced by Mitch Dane), was released in March, 2013.

Elizabeth’s passion for music and songwriting has taken her on concert tours across the United States, playing for universities, churches, wineries, coffee shops, house concerts, and more. She is delighted to be doing what she loves most: sharing through music the great story woven through all our small stories – the epic of hope, romance, sorrow, redemption, and the love of God.

Creating space for reflection
On a journey to the sacred, Elizabeth Busch leads us through the landscape of the human heart with calming and poignant melodies. Her melodic voice comparable to Vienna Teng, Paula Cole, Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos reminds me of a firefly skipping along the surface of a still pond creating ripples and reflections that resonate with elegance and beauty. Her voice and guitar meet with such simplicity and pureness that the listener is carried away to the blues and greys and greens of fog lifting over Irish hills or the vaulted ceilings and stained glass windows of a sacred cathedral or the holy silence and cool stillness of redwood grove. It is a space of reflection and meditation where you are powerfully aware of presence, journey and beauty.

“Consecrated” is a raw rendering of Elizabeth’s evolving and deepening faith journey. From playful worship to moments of deep doubt, we read the pages of Elizabeth’s pray journal set to the beautiful arpeggios of her classical guitar. Influences of jazz, folk and Celtic styles are blended beautifully in compositions of honesty and a genuine desire to know God.
