Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Elizabeth became highly involved in the rich local music scene of New York City during her formative years.

At the age of 17, Elizabeth was offered a full-tuition music scholarship and began touring as a drummer with her university's traveling ensembles. By the end of her college career, Elizabeth had graduated summa cum laude, played more than 270 shows across the United States, participated in 7 tours, garnered multiple endorsements, and worked with a number of notable artists and songwriters.
