In 2001, Jeanlizabeth began a journey of playing every coffee shop, music venue, festival, and opportunity to perform the Puget Sound region featuring songs off her first recorded release, Driftwood. College and local radio, music venues, and local press supported her organic, folksy-blues style tunes. In 2005, Jeanlizabeth came out with her sophomore “Restless” project with a CD release party at the Experience Music Project in Seattle, WA. The outcome led to many shows with a full band and great opportunities to play the area, meeting and playing with many local icons (i.e. Jerry Miller, Danny Godinez, Vicci Martinez, Kim Archer, Brian Fiest, Rod Cook, and David Booker). There were intermittent years of absence due to Jean’s fulltime work with children at the state psychiatric hospital for children. In those times, Jeanlizabeth worked closely with kids and music, providing opportunities for their musical growth, knowledge, and creativity. The local music community often linked up with Jean to touch the lives of at risk youth. “Bumble Bees”, her third album, was released in 2012 at Jazzbones in Tacoma, WA. That year, Jeanlizabeth enjoyed meeting Bob Rivers and playing at KJR radio in Seattle. Now working with veterans at the VA Hospital in hospice and rehab care, Jean continues to share her musical world with those who have served our country. Musicians in the community continue to provide outreach and link up with Jean to touch the lives of veterans. Highlights of past Jeanlizabeth performances include the Northwest Folklife Festival, USA Songwriting Competition showcases, and local premier venues including Jazzbones, Seattle's Showbox Greenroom, 4th Ave Tavern, Capital Theatre, The Swiss, and many other favorite establishments for live music. In the summer of 2014, Jeanlizabeth received a scholarship to attend the Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival in Bigfork, Montana where she met and enjoyed playing music with legends, fellow students, and new friends in music and guitar. Currently, Jeanlizabeth is back in the saddle, booking, writing, and showcasing her array of heartfelt original tunes.
