Elizabeth Ziman, a classically trained pianist from Greenwich Village was one of the first members of the Young People’s Chorus of New York City. She went on to study classical composition at Berklee College of Music on scholarship and was awarded the 2001 ASCAP Lieber and Stoller scholarship for her song Like Water is to Sand. Her original plans to pursue film scoring changed when Patti Austin invited Ms. Ziman to join her for an Ella Fitzgerald tour, an experience that altered her compositional style. On her return, she formed the Brooklyn-based indie pop band Elizabeth & The Catapult with drummer Dan Molad. With their first recording, “Elizabeth & The Catapult,” they were named by Billboard as Underground Artist of October 2006 and signed by Verve Records. Their Verve debut album, “Taller Children,” was released in 2009. That same year, while she was writing a song cycle commissioned by WNYC’s John Schaefer for a Lincoln Center program, she read Leonard Cohen’s Book of Longing collection, which gave her new Verve album, “The Other Side of Zero” its title and a handful of tracks. The recording, a highly personal examination of love, loss, and growing older, was released last October. Decoy Music has called it “a classic, soon to be a staple in your collection.
