Elizabeth and the Catapult
Years of performing in New York City clubs and touring internationally have honed a natural ability that brings Elizabeth Ziman’s colorful imagination, smart lyrics and catchy melodies to life -- a testament to why this singer-songwriter, who performs as Elizabeth and the Catapult, is often found collaborating -- most recently with Sara Bareilles on Apple TV's "Little Voice" and with Paul Brill on award winning documentaries.
Elizabeth and the Catapult's fifth studio album was born out of a need during the pandemic shut down to cope with the breakdown of communication. It was recorded in her living room during quarantine and is her first fully self-produced album.
sincerely, e is a comforting salve - to soothe and nourish listeners and lovers of music - after a most confusing and emotional year. sincerely, e was released March 2021 to great critical acclaim.

After training as a dancer in Georgia, she switched gear in her last year of school to study music in Boston. She eventually landed in New York City by way of North Carolina and New Zealand. Easterlin alternately accompanies herself on baritone ukulele and with live vocal loops, drawing from influences like UK electronic artist Imogen Heap, Tuareg ensemble Tinariwen, and Benjamin Britten's choral works.
She has recorded and performed with internationally renowned artists, including UK musician Jacob Collier, American choreographer Bill T. Jones, Oscar-winning film scorer Kris Bowers, and vocalist Bobby McFerrin.
In 2015, she released a collaborative album with Malian guitarist Vieux Farka Touré to critical acclaim. Her first full-length solo album was released in 2017 under the moniker HITE.
Easterlin is currently writing new songs for a solo EP to be released in 2023. She lives in Brooklyn with her partner, her cat and her tortoise.
