Elizaveta is a quad-lingual opera-pop singer, songwriter, pianist and producer.

Born in New York City to diplomat parents, Elizaveta grew up in Moscow, Russia. She started playing piano and writing songs when she was five years old. Her childhood was full of music, but also shadowed by fears of potential fallout from a major head trauma she received as a baby, which left her with a mild case of synesthesia and prone to dramatic episodes of sleepwalking. When she turned 15, she left home and embarked upon a 3-year journey across Europe. She played piano and sang in seedy European nightclubs, studied herbal alchemy in an Italian monastery, and finished it off by attending the Prague Academy of Music. Her Northern star then took her to Los Angeles, where she graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in opera and music composition.

In 2011, Elizaveta signed with Universal Republic Records and immediately went into the studio with the multi-Grammy award winner and producer Greg Wells (Adele, Rufus Wainwright, Katy Perry, and Elton John) who helped Elizaveta hone her “opera-pop” vision and style. The result was her 2012 major label debut “Beatrix Runs,” which featured the iTunes Song Of The Week & single “Dreamer.”

With that debut, Elizaveta distinguished herself as the “5th Element” of pop by mixing opera with electronica, classical and soul. Elizaveta left Universal Republic Records in 2013 and launched her own label Flower Army Records. In spring of 2014, the self-titled self-produced track “Hero” from her “Hero EP” was remixed by electronic dance music duo Pegboard Nerds and featured in the viral video “Superman with a GoPro.” The release was so popular, the electronic label Monstercat launched a remix competition of the track. It has gathered over 60 cumulative million plays on YouTube to date.

Since then, Elizaveta’s music has been featured in a cadre of films and numerous television shows, such as “Pretty Little Liars,” “So You Think You Can Dance,” “Triple Nine,” “Scandal” and “The Affair,” amongst others. She is the recognized voice of the Tavern Bard Maryden Halewell in the award-winning video game “Dragon Age: Inquisition” and has toured widely both in Europe and the United States, gracing the TED stage numerous times.

She also toured Russia with Russian power rock duo B-2 and a symphony orchestra and performed to audiences up to 14,000 people at a time. Their duet “Только Любовь Починит” (“Only Love Will Fix This”) topped Russian pop charts in spring 2015. Her single “Trap” was featured in a major Russian 2016 motion picture “Призрак,” while a heartbreaking ballad “Выше” (“Higher”) became the emotional centerpiece of the action blockbuster “Молот” (“Hammer”).

Elizaveta’s 2nd full album “Messenger” was released in 2015, written, produced and arranged by herself (with the exception of two songs, “Trap” & “Space Pirate’s Love Song” co-produced with J Paulsen). The album was mixed by 6-time Grammy winner Rob Chiarelli. Brooklyn-based band Great Caesar are featured on the title tune.

Elizaveta’s collaborations continued such as “Space Pirate’s Love Song” music video with NASA, a hit dance anthem “Extraordinary” with returning Pegboard Nerds, and a surprising drum’n’base release “Drifters” with British rising star Feint. In the music video of her melodic pop single “SOS,” she collaborated with director Vlad Marsavin and his award-winning animated short film “Sebastian.”

In 2019, Elizaveta released her first duet album “目覚める理由” (“Reasons to Wake Up”) recorded entirely in Japanese language with Scott Murphy (MONOEYES / ALLiSTER/SCOTT & RIVERS) and toured in 16 cities across Japan. The album was mixed by multiple-Grammy winner Rob Chiarelli and David Peters, and mastered by 3-time Latin Grammy nominee Alex Psaroudakis.

As the Covid pandemic took hold in 2020, she moved on to online live-streaming on Twitch, where she built a brand new fanbase, and has since created hundreds of improvised songs and pieces, utilizing technology, multiple musical instruments, as well as kids toys. In the meantime, electronic music label Monstercat released an official remix version of her powerful song “SOS,” by a British DJ Stonebank,  In following weeks, Sony Records released a mesmerizing trance remix of Elizaveta’s wistful anthem “Icarus,”  on an album by iconic electronic musician & DJ Nigel Stanford. She also wrote a song-based soundtrack for a Russian hit TV series “Pregnancy Test” (“Тест на Беременность.”)

In 2021, Elizaveta recorded and released an exquisitely minimalist EP of mostly solo piano, aptly named “Songs of Sleep.” One of its feature tracks, “Horizon,” was requested by celebrated photographer and arctic explorer Roger Fishman, for a video of his aerial footage of Greenland. She then released her first “wall of sound” opera pop single “Archangel.” Another version of the track was released as a duet with international star tenor extraordinaire Timur Bekbosunov. Then, in a surprise twist of events at year’s end, the famed DJ duo Infected Mushroom did a special remix of “Hero.”

In 2022,  Elizaveta created soundtracks for two films, “My Invincible Compass,” a Japan-based documentary about children in institutional care in Japan, and “Unconfined,” a film by disability rights activist Victor Pineda.

in 2023, she can be found in Japan, raising her 6-year old child, and putting finishing touches on the long-awaited full-length album of dark industrial pop-meets-opera sounds. Also upcoming are: an EP in Japanese, a Mandarin Chinese single version of her classic “Odi et Amo,” and a variety of acoustic projects, collaborations, and more singles in various genres. She is starting to write songs for other artists, and an opera is in the works.
