Elizabeth & The Catapult’s namesake Elizabeth Ziman’s has had many creative labours over a number of years, having released 3 studio albums, Like It Never Happened, The Other Side Of Zero, and Taller Children.
After a split with Verve Records, Ziman took to busking in the subways of New York to teach herself to play guitar, in classical piano, she would write songs from a young age, using the rhythm of a tumble drier as a metronome.
The Other Side of Zero, drew interest from Anne Hathaway who used the album’s track “Thank You For Nothing” as inspiration for her hair cutting scene in Les Miserables. Hathaway later cast Elizabeth as a street musician in an upcoming film, Song One, about New York Musicians, which has just premiered in New York City.
