Elizabeth Jonasson’s CD The Figgery Fell does not fit neatly into any one category. Classical, jazz, folk and pop mingle together in a dance of lament. The best way to describe her music might be with images: Picture a cold October night without a moon; the ocean on an overcast day; or roller skating through a graveyard at midnight. It's a moody collection of peculiar songs, mostly piano, vocals and harmonies, with the occasional use of other instrumentation.
Each CD is an original linoleum print on recycled material, individually colored with pencil. Included is a Songbook with the lyrics and drawings, also designed and created by Elizabeth Jonasson. If you gravitate towards original works of art and music, you will appreciate this as a comprehensive work of art.
Elizabeth is an artist and musician living in Santa Cruz, California.
