Elizabeth & the Catapult (she/her)
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, sincerely, e, was born out of a need during the pandemic shutdown to cope with the breakdown of communication. It was recorded in her living room during quarantine and is her first fully self-produced album.
Napat Snidvongs is a Thai singer/songwriter who currently resides in New York City. Napat mixes Thai storytelling traditions of magical realism and Buddhist folktales with the independent music sound that he discovered while studying at an American high school in the late ‘90s. He released music through a Bangkok independent label, So::on DryFlower Records, and his compositions have been featured in many television commercials and Thai blockbuster films.
Valarie Walker, a native of New York, is an activist, educator, artist, and a three-time winner of the Moth Story Slam. Her story about meeting hero Ruby Bridges aired on the Moth Radio Hour, and the first film she appeared in, “Watermelon Woman,” was inducted into the Library of Congress archives. She uses storytelling to heal, challenge, inspire, and connect.
