Elisa Brown is known internationally for her “eloquent voice,” her “encompassing, engaging” songs, and her “incredible vocal talents with a heartfelt take on life.” She has brought her gorgeous voice and songwriting to diverse and celebrated projects – including her “powerful and thought-provoking” world beat album New World with Grammy-award winning producer Barry Goldstein, and her “truly angelic” album The Ave Maria Experience. In addition to performing at Carnegie Hall and off-Broadway, Elisa Brown was a representative of the U.S. in China at the UN 2012 International Day of Peace Concert. PBS viewers also know her as the host of the TV show, The Heart of Art with Elisa Brown.
Now, Elisa takes us back home to her Texas roots in Hoodwinked from Heaven – an original, down-home show dedicated to her late father Bill. Although he always supported her international talent in classical music, Bill used to jokingly call the classics “long-haired music” – preferring the works of Hank Williams or Patsy Cline. But when Elisa’s father began to slip further and further into heartbreaking cognitive decline, he asked her to write some country and Americana songs just for him. Hearing them helped refresh the memory of his and her Texas adventures – not to mention their colorful cast of family characters.
These heart-warming, knee-slapping tunes are a celebration of the deeply American music that kept a family alive with hope and laughter – and continue the legacy of a father’s character and love.
