Elisa Smith is a country rock 'n' roll artist hailing from Boston, MA. Her songs elicit feelings of nostalgia, pride, wanderlust, heartbreak, and good ol' fashioned boot-stompin' mischief. Rock n roll and vintage country run in her blood, so it makes a whole lotta sense that her sound has been likened to Loretta Lynn meets Led Zeppelin. That's especially true when she's hittin' the stage with her full 5-piece band The Tiny Little Lies, made up of Erin Bonnie on fiddle and backup vocals, Victor Hernandez on drums, Henri Young on bass, Parker Goessling on electric guitar, and Elisa herself on acoustic guitar and lead vocals.
In April of 2017, Elisa hit the road with Erin Bonnie in tow, and headed to Nashville to record her debut EP Hitch A Ride. The EP was produced and engineered by Johnny Duke, a gifted producer and guitar player who has played, recorded, and toured with some of the biggest national acts in today's country world - Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, and Chris Stapleton, among others - and was recorded at his home studio, Spirit Radio, in East Nashville, TN.
Elisa is currently recording her Country Rock Opera titled Verne's Little Lie, a cautionary tale of love, heartbreak, whiskey, and murder. The EP features her Boston-based live band the Tiny Little Lies, and was recorded and produced by Sean McLaughlin of 37' Productions. The 3-song country saga is set to be released in the spring of 2020.
Outside of the full band setting, Erin and Elisa gig out as an acoustic duo, bringing a more classic country sound to the greater New England area. While still focusing on original material, the two tend to bust out their favorite throwback covers of the Patsy Cline, Merle Haggard, and Loretta Lynn variety. Their strong harmony vocals add depth and complexity to their intimate two-piece, providing a musical experience that's not to be missed.
